I've never marinaded a pork shoulder/butt. I generally inject them with apple cider and apple cider vinegar, with some of my rub mixed in. I then rub it.
I usually cook shoulders at 250F, an 8 pound shoulder taking about 9 hours.
If I do it right, they come out juicy, tender and smokey, with a clean pork taste, which I really like. I want to taste pork, not added flavors.
