Since I tend to singlehand, and have a small boat, large cans are difficult to store and expensive to open since I don't have consistent refrigeration.
I spent a lot of time sampling brands, trying to find the ones I liked the best (or disliked the least) but settled on a number of brands that I can get almost anywhere (as nice as Costco is, Kirkland isn't anywhere as available as Hormel for example).
My basic provisioning idea is that if I don't eat it at home or have it in the pantry, I don't need it aboard. I carry the following canned meat items:
- tuna (the foil packs are more expensive than the tins and taste the same to me);
- roast beef hash;
- corned beef;
- chunk white chicken;
- sardines (in mustard and tomato sauce);
- ham (usually in the 1 or 2pound cans);
- salmon (treat, so only a few)
- crab (treat, so only a few);
- roast beef (Brinkmans is the only one I've found edible, but it comes in 28oz cans);
- pork (ditto the roast beef);
- beef (ditto the roast beef);
- beef and chicken stews (low salt if I can find it);
- bacon (way too expensive but adds that special touch to a meal, so a treat).
I don't carry SPAM. It could be that we ate a _lot_ of it growing up, that I've never found a good recipe for it, or that there's so much out there that I like more.
I remove the labels, wipe down the top and bottom of the can, and write a code on the top and bottom of the can with a permanent marker (tuna = 2na, roast beef = rb, etc) for cans that have similar shapes. Cans of ham or corned beef are distinctive so I don't label those. Sardine cans are already preprinted. If the cans have interesting recipe suggestions, I'll save one or two and put them in the menu folder for consideration later.
I like Brinkmans but at $100/case including shipping, the cost of a can (~$8.00) can be steep, but the consistent quality and above average taste makes up for the higher than normal price, imo.

The scoops are coming!
I preferred Omega Man.

|wind_magic||It isn't canned, but some say that a new kind of crunchy protein wafer called Soylent Green is yummy, and they say the wafers store really well too for long passages.|

I can only wonder if that wasn't the product of some hardcore stoners who couldn't find White Castle late one night:
"Dude, wouldn't it be awesome if you cold, like, you know, just open a can and take a cheeseburger off the shelf? And not have to go out for it?"
"Whoa, dude, sure, I could do that!"
"Bet you can't"
"Bet I can!"
And when someone woke up, they figured out how to sell it.
Still...I can't help thinking, a tinned cheeseburger has to be made for the folks who think White Castle (and McBurger) really are hamburgers. That ain't what gets served with my Guinness!

I have not been here as much as I once was so if this has been already talked about excuse this post.

nuker boils it up good, never had a problem. personally I think the whole "throw it away" deal is so the make up companies can sell more product. I have shadows I have used for over a decade that are fine. I am careful to keep my brushes and applicators clean and don't share. occasionally I have had something go bad, but it's easy to tell when that happens. it looks weird and smells off.
Should we open a thread about cruising makeup and lipbalm? I think there is already one on sunscreen!

|hellosailor||Is it in the microwave longenough to sterilize it? Last I'd heard, lip stick and balm were great places to breed things as they got old enough. "gummy" sounds like gone a bit too far.|
