China has more than half of the world’s hogs. They’re the primary livestock there. (Think about that—they have more hogs than the rest of the world combined.) African swine fever recently killed half of China’s hogs, ¼th of the world’s supply.
Diseases move rapidly around the globe. North American pork producers are trying to prepare for the swine fever’s arrival. Let’s hope that the spread is stopped.
BTW, China is flooded with counterfeit African swine fever vaccine. Some people don’t care about the consequences.
I’m planning to smoke my first pork shoulder and am looking for advice on good or high quality brands to buy. Does Smithfield produce good or high quality product? Does quality matter? I would think it would. What brands do you recommend? What retailers sell quality products, e.g. Would you buy from Costco?

I am a kamado quasi-neophyte (I've got a Monolith junior since last August), and after some experience with shorter cooks (chicken; ribs) I wanted to enroll into Brisket Academy. Unfortunately, it seems that I have failed the entry exam, as I couldn't explain to my butcher what I needed.
In the end, I was talked into buying something that definitvely does not look like brisket to me, and I don't know how to cook. It seems something I would braise or boil, but according to the butcher I can cut it into strips and make 'asado'. It is boneless (but has some hard cartilage).
Apart for the idea of slicing strips and grilling them (that's not what I wanted), what could I do with this chunk of meat? How would you call it in English?
