How many opinions can you stand? :-D
For me, the answer would depend on the stresses involved and what the
cosmetic requirements are. I'm prone to use pocket screw joinery when
I can - and M&T (sometimes pegged) when I can't.
Worse still, if I feel particularly AR about racking, I use a joint
like the one pictured at the link below.
