If your using a SmokinTex Smoker, that is step one, the most important part.

What size of pork crown roast are you wanting to smoke, what wood have you picked to use, and what kind of rub?

Please share so we can all enjoy and learn.

I found a posting on the Smoking King Meat forum that looks good.
