Trying to figure out if I should brine my pork shoulder. Would love to hear some feedback. Thanks

    I don't and the results are great.  Some folks inject them to add flavors deep into the butt.  Brining?  Not a big subject here that people write about.

    Flint, Michigan.  If the lead bullets don't kill you, the leaded water will.

    No.  No need to, so much intramuscular fat that you should have to worry about it keeping moist (I assume that why you are thinking about it).  If you are doing it for evenly distributed salt levels could be a possibility but you would want to use a low/no salt rub then.
