The picnic cut is on the opposite end of the money muscle, so it wouldn't matter.
The butt is the upper portion of the shoulder and the picnic is the bottom portion. When the butt is still a part of the entire hog, the money muscle is near the backbone - up near the loin.
It least I'm pretty darn sure that's how it all lays out. But I'm not a professional, just a guy who's cooked a whole hog once and kind of dug around to see how everything lays out.
