Tactical Canned Bacon Will Be "Edible" For 10 Years
gizmodo.com ^ | Aug 27 2009 | Sean Fallon

Posted on 08/28/2009 6:38:40 AM PDT by Daffynition

We have talked about canned bacon in the past, but if you want the Cadillac of preserved pork you pick up a can of Tac-Bac. This xxxx [edited] lasts for 10 years!

What would it taste like? What would it taste like after 10 years in the can? I'm horrified and intrigued at the same time. If you are willing to try it out, each can of Tac-Bac holds about 54 slices of bacon. Not a bad deal for $16 a can.

Its not the only brand out there. How many commpanies can there be making canned bacon, right?

I saw one website of boating supplies or something with canned butter, canned brown bread and other crazy stuff.

If you will remember, the troops in the Pacific were eating C-rations from WWI during WWII, properly preserved, things last a lot longer than you think.

How’m I supposed to drink it if I’ve lost my “church-key”?

“I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give.” Thomas Jefferson letter to Alexander Donald, February 7, 1788

Hey, that’s freaking brilliant! Wood handle to be able to hold the ‘pan’, smooth surface... wow, I need to get a really nice shovel to keep handy for SHTF moments! My little cast iron skillet works too, but hard to work with it having to be so close to the flame.

Shaved pickled ginger (gari) will do the trick, along with an ice-cold Coke.

My dad LOVED Spam. Every morning during the last five years of his life (I took care of him) I would make him Spam and eggs. I prepared very low fat/low cholesterol foods the rest of the day, but a couple thin slices of fried spam, one poached egg and some wheat toast was heaven to him for starting his day.
