Default Smithfield meats.

Just sold out to, China? I feel like that was a very stupid thing to do. Especially how Americans feel
about China right now.

Smithfield was bought by the Chinese back in 2013, I remember when that happened because my in-laws live in Virginia and there was a big to-do about it.

I bought some way back when you could only get it on-line up here.
It was a huge disappointment; it was not better to not as good a the average Minn. grocery store low priced ham.
I have had some other hams, before shipping went through the roof, from Ham Country and it can be , WOW that is different and good -- to -- WOW -- you spent HOW MUCH for this!

I believe the purchase was a response to the h1n1 (swine) flu outbreak. They were losing untold numbers of hogs and had to do something to protect their supply... maybe we need to buy a foreign TP factory...

Again working from memory, what they really got was modern genetics and systems. Something they just weren’t able to reverse engineer or steal, American pork producers knew what they had and protected it.

I found TP on amazon. I think it's those huge rolls you see in public establishments. Maybe, but it will still do the job...

I must live the life of luxury, keeping the wife living as she’s become accustomed. Only 2ply for her... I steal the bulk stuff from the truck stops for my own home use.

So you're the one makin' my life tough on the porcelain! I'm a trucker. No worse feeling than to go in, drop trou, sit down, execute the battle plan then discover a tragic logistical failure behind the polished stainless steel...
