The butcher said the shoulder would be in pieces...guess I will have to try and butterfly it myself:) wish me luck, it's for dinner guests Sat night. First time making it so hoping it will b fabulous!!

No, you really can't sub pork loin for shoulder in this recipe. The loin does not have enough fat to make the porchetta. Either make something else, or freeze the loin for another occasion.
