Use a whole pork, pork chop or ham rub you can apply the rub in advance with some people liking to apply it 8-24 hours before smoking. A good pork rub is meant more as a surface treatment for flavor and to create the bark. Apply the rub just before cooking in combination with a thin layer of olive oil as most of the flavors in the rub are oil soluble (dissolves easily). Spread the rub generously on the thicker portions of the shoulder. One trick competition barbecuers use is to add two tablespoons of Pork Stank to one cup of Peach Farmosa or Orange County Tea to spray on the meat while it is smoking.
