Assuming that a pork picnic shoulder and not a pork butt/boston
roast (which are never sold cured), you're going to have a bitch of
a time trying to trim and portion that out when raw. It should be
cooked whole; there is no other sensible option.
I don't suspect you'll take my advice, so somebody else try and save
her from making a mess.
