Shouldn't really need to foil a shoulder IMO. They have enough fat to keep them moist for the entire cook unfoiled.

The hickory was cut down a little under a year ago and was cut into logs this past September...hopefully I can get it to burn clean.

Thanks for the tips guys. I will be making my version of Jerk Chicken this Saturday and will post the recipie and pictures.

Yeah, last shoulder I did was wild hog and I did wrap it after 4 hours due to wild hogs been leaner. I use alot of pecan wood down here in the south and I really like it. Not too mild not too sharp. I just starting using plum and to me it is the most mild. Yeah for what it's worth I heard from an old timer, wood that is over 2 years old is only good for heat. It loses it's flavor. Perfect wood is 6 mos to a year old.

I don't think anyone covered this thought. Using sticks and having a clean burning fire will result in less smoke taste as the smoke from the fire is hotter and cleaner. I have a COS and a Lang. The COS uses RO Lump and chunks of smoke wood for fuel, minion method with more of a smoldering fire, and there is a noticeably stronger smoke flavor from it than the Lang which is strictly burning sticks. The live fire in the Lang is more work, but produces a more subtle smoke flavor.

I agree with the others.....

Loose the foil, use a hardwood rather than a fruit wood, and you are dulling your senses to smoke.

Leave the exhaust vent open, if you close it you will have to enjoy the bitter taste of creosote......
