      Go to two of our better grocery stores, Dognac's or Zuppardoe's have them all the time. I do not buy pork at Rouse's. All their pork is injected with a 12% broth solution by weight. Number one I want to season my own food and two, I do not want to pay for water. I have seen them at Winn Dixie but that is rare. They usually have fresh picnics, which comes from the upper front shoulder. That is very good too. You cook like a roast for slicing. How are you going to cook it LL and serve. Hope this helps. I just thought call Emmit's Meat on Jeff Hwy across from Smile's Rest. if you want something cut special. They are a very good butcher shop. Nice man that whats to please his customers the old fashion way.

    2. Call Chisesi's. We used to get whole fresh ham for Caribbean food at church. Union Supermarket on Carrollton was once a good source, so perhaps the new Hispanic markets in Kenner would work.
