chimney shoulders

I recently had a chimney sweep inspect my chimney. I was getting a soot smell after big rains from my fireplace. the inspector said the chimney shoulders needed new mortor. Where are the shoulders, and is this a job i can do myself?

The shoulders are whare the fireplace narrows to form the chimney. You could do it yourself; the question would be could you do it well enough to correct the problem and look good.
