I have my mindset on making some pulled pork. Will be my first time smoking a shoulder and thought I'd check with yall for some hints. I make carnitas all the time, and love pork shoulder, hard to mess up, and delicious results.
But this will be my first smoke of a pork butt, and, since they are big, my longest smoke. So a couple questions, what kind of wood is your favorite for pork butt?
I like apple, hickory sometimes is strong, and I fear for that long of a smoke, may be too strong, which leads me to my next ?
Should, during the smoke, should i ease of the smoke at a certain time, to not get that bitter taste?
I need to find a new hobby other than cooking for trying to lose weight, oh well
Thanks for your input people!
