Default Pork shoulder - skin on or off

I am planning a traditional pulled Q - my first on the smoker. My shoulder
is about 60% covered with the skin. Should I remove this or not?

I have yet to encounter a shoulder with skin on it, but I've done a
few
picnics and the 'Q'd' skin adds nice taste and texture to the pulled
pork
after it's chopped up and mixed in. I believe 'Bob in Ga' has some
pertinent comments in the BBQ FAQ.

It can be a wrestle but you get better rub coverage if you remove the
skin. Some people score through it. Last butt I did I cooked direct
and used the skin as the deflector-kind of a pad to rest the meat on.
It worked pretty well.
Since it's your first I wanna say don't pull it until the internal is
over 190F. You want that bugger fallin apart.

Thanks all. It is going in the smoker soon, skin intact.
