Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I think pork picnic shoulders are sold whole and by halves. There is a butt half and shank half. One has a big bone but Im not sure which, The one with the big bone is usually less expensive. I try to get 2 halves without the big bone so there is more meat but any type works. This recipe is for 1 whole or 2 halves.
