Went to the store the other day and noticed pork blade shoulders with a lot of fat on the top and some that must've had the fat trimmed off. Which do I want for smoking? I heard that fat renders and keeps the meat moist, but there should be enough fat in it to be fine is another argument. And the rub won't penetrate the fat cap. Thoughts as to which one I should get and why. Thanks.
