Greetings,

I found that site with canned meat. I already ordered a few hardware from them: http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/can...nned_beef.aspx

1 - Is it good quality meat? Anyone can comment on the taste?

2 - Anyone knows another place with same/better quality and cheaper?

Thank you

I wish it came in pouches instead of cans, but it's pretty interesting, especially the ground beef.

Edit; On a semi-related note: Mountain House has some similar new products: http://www.mtnhse.com/mm5/merchant.m...egory_Code=MHW

Werling & Son's is cheaper and you can order a sample pack. I have not tried them but, I will soon.

You can get ground beef in pouches at Wall-Mart.

Apparently not at my local one.

I looked up ground beef in pouches and the only brand I could find was Jack Link's and apparently they stopped making it. Still, knowing there is one out there rekindles hope and i will start searching again. You don't happen to know the brand, do you?

The canned meat at Pleasant hill can last a loooooooooooooong time.

Thank you

As far as I know, It's popular for long term storage and MRE Depot sell's it as such. (Their price is quite a bit higher than ordering it direct).
I have not ordered any so, you might want to shoot them an email and ask for specifics.
I have ordered the Yoder's brand from MRE Depot (have not been able to find it cheaper)and It has a 10 year shelf life.
http://www.mredepot.com/servlet/the-...ter/Categories
I've got cases of it but, I've never even opened one. So I hope it's good.
I guess I should try it.

It has been several years since I bought them....It was Jack Links it came in Plain, Mexican and Itallian flavors. I did notice that Wal-Mart is selling Mountainhouse meals in their camping section and they stock freezedried Cheeseburger patties.

The Walmarts around me sell only MtHouse Chile Mac and Spaghetti. They do beat anyone else's prices. Just wish they would do something about the variety.

Yoders bacon is good. I plan on picking up a case, I bought a can to try. The Red Feather Butter is good as well.

Yeah, I've got the Red Feather butter & cheese too.
Again, I've never even opened a can. I'm so cheap I don't even want to use anything out of my long term storage.

I see you are in Florida; make sure to keep the butter at cool temps. The ones I bought started to melt in the can on an 85 degree day. They were delivered before I got home from work and the UPS driver put them on my porch which is shaded but they still melted.

I put them in the fridge and then used them. It worked out fine.

When I am storing long term, I am OK with meat, fruit and other things in cans. Im not talking about very short term storage like in a BOB. But for storage up to three months, YOU BETCHA! Cans are tuff and earthquake resistant. Plus there is a lot more variety in cans .....

Canned Meat:

Tuna
Salmon
Beef
Turkey
Chicken

Plus Veggies ...

Potatos
Corn
Carrots
and more

Fruit ....

Pears
Peaches
Mixed Fruit
Etc...

When it comes to storage up to three months .... CANS CANS CANS!!!!

Uh, look at the price difference between direct order & your site.
2x $48.70 + shipping
http://www.werlingandsons.com/products.aspx?catID=1
I uderstand if your a club member you get free shipping and a discount so does it end up cheaper after you factor that in?
Do you price match if I join your club?

Yep, mine got put on the porch and they were warm, I was afraid of that.
It makes sense to order those in the winter time here.
I should probably get some more now before it get's hot again.

Cool

The one thing I will suggest you do is get samples of any canned products you are going to use post-SHTF. Make sure your family will eat what you stored.

We cannot guarantee the lowest price on everything we sell--it's impossible for any seller to do so. But we certainly do bend over backwards to get our club members the best possible deals we can arrange. Many of our members will testify that as a matter of practice at Safecastle, we have been known to lose money, sometimes lots of money, just to put smiles on our members' faces. (We do try to price match if that is in the realm of reason.)

In the case of Werlings meats--our supplier prices are what they are. I thank you for pointing out that direct pricing option. I should be able to get our members improved pricing going forward.

I bought the Sample pack of 5 cans. The GB makes great sloppy joes, the beef chunks make a fine beef n gravy over noodles, and the Pork made a passable stir fry. I have yet to open the turkey or chicken.
