Ok guys my buddy went hunting the other day and was able to harvest a pic. I was able to get both shoulders off of him. I told him i would smoke them.
Both have no skin fat ;s
Go ahead with seasoning tips. :dr:dr:dr

Well you are going to need some fat. I would keep it simple and pepper them and then wrap about a lb of bacon around each one. These things are going to be tough unless you give them a lot of low slow heat and some fat.

Can't argue with Mychal's advice. I would think maybe a brine would help too.

I thought about bring but have never done that to red meat and do not know how well it works. I know it works great for chicken and Turkey.... maybe worth a try...

I've done brines on thick cut pork chops with great results. Some fennel seed, maybe some rosemary in there, plus smashed garlic cloves. Mmm, my mouth's watering.

Either Mychal's or Bob's options would work well. You can also smoke the meat for a few hours, and then wrap it completely in foil to finish over the slow heat. This will reduce evaporation and keep the liquids trapped against the meat.

I like this idea...

I haven't used their wild boar recipes, but I've tried some of their others with success.

Stab the shoulder a bunch of times without breaking through; fill the slits with bacon and garlic. Brine it (marinade) in an oven bag for 24-48 hours. Roast it at 180 overnight in the bag..

Eat!

If you have a rimmed pan big enough for the shoulders, put them in it after a couple hours smoking, then pour one can of pepsi into the pan. Then seal the pan with foil. Then finish them in an oven at 300 degrees. Works wonders!
