There are two kinds of beer in the world, cold and other people’s.
My p.o.s. brother learned to like warm beer . . . . just so nobody would want it.


I can't stand tuna but those chicken creations are very tasty!!
For years, and years, I would eat the "chunk light" tuna in the little cans. Needed protein, and was on a budget. There came a point I could not stomach the "guppy" flavor anymore. Switched to albacore. . . . day and night difference. But yeah, chicken is much more tasty.

I plan on snagging a few ideas from these posts and trying them. Thanks for the tips and information!

Packing List for Food:
Spices
Instant Oatmeal
Regular coffee grounds (see brewing below)
Snack bars
Dehydrated Fruit
Homemade Beef Jerky (re-hydrate for cooking and some flavor is added instantly to the food)
Wood burning cooking stove in addition to the gas burner system. I use this for slow cooking veggies and use the gas for water only. The gas burner does not disperse heat evenly and this is a backup if I run out of fuel.

Breakfast:
Coffee and instant oatmeal with dehydrated fruit

Lunch:
Always eat at a stop - overlook, abandoned gas station, etc. Usually eat a snack bar, fruit, or jerky.

Dinner:
Quick stop before heading to the campsite. I get water and food. Usually grab vegetables that are easy to cook at the campsite. This varies based on the day's temperature since it determines if I have a fire or not. I usually grab broccoli, avocado, ramen noodles, beans, or something in this category. Canned beans are easy to find in a low-sodium format. I usually grab beer at the closest gas station and ask if I can put a bit of ice in a cooler bag from their soda machine/ice maker or I carry some bourbon or whiskey.

Spices are packed in these containers. You can find the setup on Etsy for about $12 or make it yourself.

Coffee is important to me. I do not like the taste of instant coffee but do not want to carry anymore weight then needed. My wife and I came across this coffee filter when we were planning a trip to Iceland. It is weightless and works well. The key is to seep the coffee before finishing the pour (same concept as a french press).

Very nice setup. Ramen makes an excellent alternative to the packaged “hiking” freeze dried pouches. I add veggies and a pouch of chicken or something to spruce it up.

I have that same type of mini stove and fuel heater. They both great but I find the pressure the can throws out varies. They cooking set started to go bad after a few uses meaning I was eating coating that came off that pan and pot.

Thanks for the info! If this is the case then I will definitely spend the money to make a change.
Any recommendations on ones that will not have this issue?

I just got a small camping pot with no coating from Walmart. But Amazon has the same with a folding handle. Brass, iron and stainless steel are the best.
