HELLO FROM SPRINGFIELD MO.
SMOKING 13LB SHOLDER PICNIC IN NEW OK JOE TODAY. SHOULD I TAKE SKIN OFF BEFORE?
Yes If the skin is on it yet, cut it off, but leave some of the fat. Then cut a diamond pattern through the fat cap into the red meat. That way your seasoning rub & smoke will get through the fat & into the meat, while the fat will baste down to your meat.
