True, the foil pouches are tough and not as vulnerable to rust and such.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I just recently discovered the new products by Bumble Bee brand.
I can't post a link to the website because I don't have enough posts, but search bumble bee tuna
The spicy thai tuna is absolutely awesome. Mix that in with some not-so-soupy ramen noodles and you have yourself a feast.

Some of my favorites ...

Kirkland signature roast beef, 12oz cans, 6 for 10.99$us at Costco
Kirkland albacore tuna, 6oz cans, 8 for 8.99$us at Costco
Bumble Bee chunk crab, ??oz cans, 4 for 12.99$us at Costco
Pacific Gold brand beef jerky, 8oz pack, 2 for 10.99$us at Costco

The roast beef is good heated up, doesn't even need to be cooked in anything, but also makes a great base for other dishes. The tuna and the crab I usually just eat right out of the can.

In the states we don't have nearly the amount of canned beef as there is in other countries. I remember when I have traveled that it is normal to see canned beef, canned roast beef, etc, in the grocery store, but in the states I have been in grocery stores that don't carry any of that. You can search the whole store and not find a can of beef. I guess people in the states just don't eat it, or always use fresh cuts of meat.

What are you pretending not to know ?

Well it looks like I will be trying a lot of different canned meats in the US before stocking up, I mean here in Oz there are some canned foods you would'nt feed a brown dog. Thanks for your help everyone.

Canned Meat in USA

Brinkmans canned meats are wonderful. The beef taste as if it was roasted the night before. They are located in Ohio they also have a web site. We still have 3 cans left it is over 6 yrs old the shelf life is a known at 6 yrs. Also Tysons canned chicken is very good. We do not eat the spam or corn beef done by various companies.

We have canned our own meat in the past before we left New Zealand and it was also very good.

Thumbs up Canned Meats made better

Great Post! If you add a few drops of Marie Sharp's hotsauce [from Belize] it will add significant flavor but watch out its addictive.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

Just FYI, Kirkland is Costco's in-house brand, so, you probably won't see it anywhere else.

The beef jerky mentioned is quite good...

Now that you mention it, a former co-worker (we took turns cooking) used to make a sandwich spread from canned corned beef that was affectionately known as "dog food" sandwiches.

Very interesting responses; It makes me hungry to think about all of it. Let us know what you try and what you like. Also; I would be interested to hear about what canned meats you buy in your home port.

we use Hickory farms stuff, has a better shelf life and will store longer than the grocery store meat and tastes better as well. use the smaller packages and use within a descent time frame after opening.
