Canned bacon is pre-cooked, so you're basically giving it a nice crisping up and you're done. There's much less waste and the quality control process is amazing.
Fulton, NY (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
CampingSurvival.com has announced a new bacon promotion aimed at preppers, urban survivalists and wilderness survival enthusiasts who love the ultimate comfort food: bacon.
CampingSurvival.com will be doing the following during the month of March:
- Daily giveaway of a can of bacon or bacon jerky
- Special sale prices on canned bacon at CampingSurvival.com
- Facebook postings of tasty recipes for bacon lovers on the CampingSurvival.com Facebook fan page, as well as the CampingSurvivalWomen Facebook fan page
- A GRAND PRIZE at the end of March: an entire backpack full of canned bacon to one lucky winner
An advantage to canned bacon is that, since it's pre-cooked and vacuum sealed, it stores easily in a cupboard instead of taking up fridge or freezer space. It also shrinks less and cooks faster, meaning everyone gets to enjoy it sooner than refrigerated raw bacon from the supermarket.
"When you get a regular package of raw bacon, you lose half of it during cooking because there's so much fat," said Tom Sciacca, President of CampingSurvival.com. "Canned bacon is pre-cooked, so you're basically giving it a nice crisping up and you're done. There's less waste and the quality control process is amazing."
Sciacca is a strong proponent of having emergency food and emergency supplies handy, both at home and when camping. This includes water filtration, MRE (meals ready to eat), first aid supplies and other necessities. But he also says that enjoying the wilderness or even maintaining your household during an emergency shouldn't mean merely subsisting.
"Staying prepared for a survival situation – whether you're camping in the wilderness or riding out a civil emergency or urban unrest – is about having essentials like food, water, first aid and tools," Sciacca said. "But it's also good for morale to have comfort food and treats to enjoy. Why not be able to enjoy bacon during a wilderness excursion or if you're hunkered down at home during a storm?"
Sciacca, a former Marine and veteran of the Gulf War, founded CampingSurvival.com in 2002, and soon earned a reputation as an online authority on camping, wilderness survival and urban survival gear. CampingSurvival.com's loyal following of customers has made it a popular site for information on disaster preparedness.
