20 lbs of cooked pork

A freind is coming into town in a few weeks, and is looking for 20 pounds of cooked pork shoulder that she's going to use to make carnitas. She's asking for roasted pork. Yes, I understand that to make carnitas you should first fry or brown the pork, then roast/braise with seasonings. She's asking for "pulled pork to make carnitas". I'm just doing as I'm asked.

The question is, where can I get 20 pounds of roasted pork shoulder, that won't cost an arm and a leg (see what I did there)?

If I wasn't having 20 guests over the same day she's asking for it, I'd just make it myself for her, but I don't think I can swing the time to do it, unless I braise the 20 pounds a few days ahead of time, then figure out a way of keeping it cold without using up a significant amount of fridge space which I'm going to need.
