    Hello, my name is Bob. I am from Wisconsin and I will be making my first attempt at smoking a pork shoulder today. My smoker is a charbroil Jr. Smoker. And I will be burning mostly hickory with a little Applewood chips also. Any advice is welcome!

    Wow it's been a couple of weeks already. I had pictures of the sholder but have sine deleted them. I wish that I could say that it was a successful first attempt at smokin, but it was not.

    Turns out that I should have done more research prior to the first attempt. I can say that thanks to reading up on the forum since, I have realized that my biggest mistake was too much smoke! The shoulder was very black very quickly. Also I did not let the meat get to temp and used a picnic instead of a butt. I hope to try again this weekend!
