oceanscapt 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.

WanderingStar 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.

hellosailor 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!

Freesail99 I have not been here as much as I once was so if this has been already talked about excuse this post.

I saw this on the news the other night, Cheeseburger in a can......

The canned cheeseburger – fast food in the wilderness

sarafinadh 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.

well, lets see.. I have a REALLY neat trick with old lipstick... gets a bit gummy over time, but if it's a colour I love I just melt a chunk of it in the microwave with a chunk of lipbalm and then pour it back in the lipbalm tube!

hows that for a cool sailing trick? SPF 40 lipbalm tinted my favorite colour!

carl762 Yes, Hellosailor, going to look into some of the old cookbooks.
