Smitty Reviews - Recent Uploads

Post by Smitty » Sun Mar 03, 2019 8:42 pm

Hello,

I'm just going to post future videos in here as a one-stop-shop for my uploads.

Recently uploaded a Meal Combat Individual - 1978 - Ham & Eggs, Chopped. It was unsurprisingly super bad, but was such an awesome experience. I really enjoyed it. Though, I lost footage when my camera went into sleep mode. Made me sad:



As well, just finished editing my look at a Canadian Individual Meal Pack - 2016 - Menu #15 - Poutine. I reaaaally like this menu, to be honest. Though the 2015 menu options was much better in terms of the sides (in my opinion).



Thanks for stopping by. I'm still having a blast with these videos. They're just something super new and interesting, but I'm blown away by all the kindness and support y'all have given me. Thank you.
All the best, Gents.

well, that was interesting. Even my CF buddies were like "You never eat everything together!". I can see why.

All the best, Gents.

Had the pleasure of checking out a 2004 Lung in a Bag. Was surprisingly...not a disaster.

All the best, Gents.

My first US MRE. Aside from some very boring Civilian models (MRE Star, meh).

Was fun to shoot, was fun to shoot a review, and was fun to try this out. This came in a 2017 case (including the 2017 Burrito Bowl menu), but did not have the pound cake. Several of the components were from 2016, and the pack was stamped 7024, so must have been right on turn over.

All the best, Gents.

Well I did a very quick video. Just had the camera on me, and figured I'd throw it up.

The breakfast was definitely awesome. Really enjoyed the menu. Kind of like a ham chowder almost, and the sides were very complimentary. Using the bun to finish the main was a great idea.

Sorry about the echo, and the people talking. Literally was filming when some range members decided to share the BBQ with me, and I didn't think their voices would be picked up. Oh well. Sound is my next thing I'm going to tackle on this learning curve.



The wife and I also sat down to open up two US MREs - The Spaghetti, and the Meatballs. On a suggestion, we rat F@*#'d them and put together a nice little meal. Quite tasty and it was the wife's first experience with rations. Was fun :)

All the best, Gents.

Hello all,

I'm back again, and this time with a Modular Operational Ration Enhancement (MORE). What a neat little pack. Still packs a wallop in terms of calories and caffeine. I really enjoyed it, and look forward to taking a peek at the other two Packs I have. The chocolate pudding took a little bit to get use to, but once I put it down, and finished it later, I loved it.

All the best, Gents.

Much appreciated! Thanks sir!

Just got done sending a few arrows down the range. Full honesty, it took a few shots with these broadheads to hit where I needed to. I haven't checked to see if they are straight, and I suspect due to how all over the place they were, something was wacky.

Anyways, this is one of my all time favourite IMPs. Just so delicious. Perfect seasoning, very acceptable smoked meat, and super filling. Most of these items were dated mid to late 2017.

All the best, Gents.

Well hopefully I'm getting better at this. Trying out new settings on the camera more, and playing with the editor a bit more as well.

This is a review of a UK Operational Ration Pack (ORP) - 2017 - All Day Breakfast (Vegetarian), Moroccan Bean Stew, Chicken Tikka Masala

I absolutely loved this 24 hour pack. There's very little that I didn't enjoy that didn't come down to personal preferences. Heck yeah.

All the best, Gents.

Mmm my favourite MRE is by far the Menu 19 - Beef Patty.

It's just such a good overall menu. The main isn't huge, but I love it.

All the best, Gents.
