I'll be smoking my first pork shoulder and Im looking for a little advice. The 9 1/2 lb shoulder came with the pork skin still on. Should I remove this before smoking, or leave it on? Thanks for your help in advance.

I was assuming he was referring to a picnic with the skin on. I definitely wouldn't advise removing the fat. Fat side up does some nice self basting!
I hear ya Stevo, When he said shoulder I thought fat on for sure.
But your right about the picnic, you don't have far to go and you want all the smoke penetration you can get.
