I've seen the shelf like chart for most MRE's they bottom out at say 60F, what I'm looking do to is bury say a 55 gallon drum full of MRE's. The top would only have perhaps an inch or so of soil on it.

Out here in Utah the winters can get sub-zero and the summers can hit the triple digits.

I'm not so much worried about the summers, ground insulation should keep them near basement temps.

So what happens if an MRE freezes?

I found a half case of MRE's in a storage building last week They have been in there for several years (6 or 7) with temps in Tennessee ranging from the low teens in the winter to over a hundred several times last year. I was going to throw them away but opened a couple to seen how bad they were. Everything seemed to be fine. While not as fresh as new they were still edible. I kept the rest. Even if I don't eat them they would be good for feeding the dog or even bait for traps.
