Look Out For These Cans.
#16
I had a can of Heinz baked beans heated in the campfire this morning. Some beans were stuck to the side of the can and charred, but so far I have no ill affects five hours later.

However I need two mirrors to see if it has affected the part of my anatomy ML warned about.

Alas, I only have one mirror.

However I could make a video of the part of my anatomy at risk, and view that. Maybe I could post that to prove that this method of heating food has no adverse affects.

i don't know why but I've never taken cans into the bush (unless they were attached to a girl). I've always used prepacked or my own self made dehydrated food packs. I guess cans would be easier to stock up and find if you're always on the go or live out of a boxcar. I might have to experiment with canned goods.

This time of year, I am often at deer camp by myself, and just can't see cooking a large meal and spending the associated time cleaning dishes. Consequently, I either head into the closest small town for supper, or cook stuff in a can. When I heat things up. I almost exclusively cook using the double boiler method, with the side benefit, that I can use the hot water to wash the face, the pits and various other assorted and sundry parts.









Having spent 30+ years in and around the US military, I don't give a lot of thought about internal gluteal or alimentary damage, rather, I have spent more time treating and recovering from external damage caused by said association. I do not know what the euphemism is today, but I have been visited by the "Green Weenie" a time or two and I learned to "Embrace the Suck".......









I am sure the 9-Fingered Rat Bastard and Master Dickhead can embellish my comment........and hopefully appreciate it.....

I don't think there's any way for me to embellish that truth--you've stated it far better than I can!



I always figured a fast, evil-handling motorcycle or a jealous, well-armed husband would have punched my ticket long before I arrived at the rank (errrr, ripe) old age I seem to have achieved. Consequently, when I was younger I never paid as much attention to those can linings as I probably should have. Plus I was just plain ignorant--a situation which has only grown worse with the passing years. Even if the can linings weren't a health issue, the double-boiler method is superior just because thick mixtures (like canned chili or beans or that chunky kind of dog food) don't scorch. On top of that, Mr. Dennis' re-use of the warmed water is a great Woodsmaster Tip--and that's when this Forum is at its best.



Sure, cans are heavy for backpacking at altitude, but for many other endeavors they're convenient, and just about universally available if you're travelling and picking up your food day-by-day. One summer long ago I rode my bicycle over 3000 miles solo, camping out each night for a month. Come nightfall, probably three-quarters of the time I bought a can of some chow and heated it over a little old Optimus 8R camp stove, and for many of the same reasons--easy, fast, and no pot to clean. And, like Mr. Dennis, canned food was also dinner many an evening when trying to avoid another dicking by the Green Weenie, even if it may have been another branch of service. Even today, canned chow can be a treat when you've been living off MREs for an extended period. (See this link, and note that they're pop-tops just as Limey Pete suggests.)

Canned food isn't the only solution, but it's part of the solution. Limey Pete knows what to look for, and he did us a favor as the OP in this thread.

I always sorta thought that warming and eating out of a charred can of pork and beans by an open fire was one of the definitive experiences of classic outdoor camping... <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />
