I am off to do pacific cup this summer:
My partner is covering all the cost except food. I need to come up with the menu and preparation of food for two grown men for 15 days in the open ocean. We will have water and a small gimbaled stove, but no refrigeration at all. The boat has an outboard so there will be no spare power to speak of on the boat.
Soon at home I will have a mini fridge cold smoker. Planning on investing in 1/4 pig over the coming months, and catching some salmon. Have a vacum bagger also. Here is what I am thinking on food:
- cured and cold smoked salmon
- cured and cold smoked pork & bacon
- dehydrated vegetables and fruit
- granola bars
- instant oatmeal
- canned soups, stews, and fruit
- instant soups
- nuts & trail mix
What are your thoughts? Any other good meats I could cure and smoke, then vacum bag to bring on the boat? Any suggestions on the dehydrated stuff?
This is going to be an adventure and a learning experience.
