Boil in Bag

#1
Before we get started this aint a wah.

Are the boil in the bags supposed to be cooked in the plastic bag or are you supposed to take it out of that one and cook it in your mess tin with just the foil one on ?

I ask becuase i was away the weejend and was told that you are supposed to cook them with the plastic rapper on, although i have always took them out of it.

Could someone clear this up please.

cheers

The thing is, i was told when you boil it without the plastic bag the metal in the foil comes off the bag and into the water or something like that. so i was wondering if it should be cooked with or without the plastic bag.

what a sh*t question anyway. do you really think boiling water isnt going to heat through a minute plastic skin.

and anyway, when we have to eat ratpacks does anyone really care if your corned beef hash is cold or hot, get some work done

the colour stripe tells what meal incase of dyslexia white breakfast, red main meal, blue pudding
the outer wrapper is incase your meal explodes in your kit and beans and sausages plastered everywhere pisses off the most battle ready fella, so just as your about to heat your meal Remove outer packaging and place in hexy tele and watch till ready squeeze all contents to ensure complete reheat as a cold spot is as welcome as a wet doss bag then tear at the knotch and enjoy as you have finished place silver inner packaging back in outer wrapper to prevent future B&S again plastering your kit and now wipe your tins on the mother earths givings (Grass) to remove hexy

Have you actually TRIED to boil the things up with the wrapper on? Try it and you will get the answer to your question. Try using the boiling water with bits of melted plastic in it to make a brew and you'll get my point.

The official reasons for the plastic wrapper are
1. for easy identification of the contents
2. so that the contents don't cover your pouches in hotpot if the metalic bag fails
3. to offer protection to the metalic bag in a chemical environment (!)

Thin plastic back keeps the foil bag clean, this will help to keep the water cleaner so you can use it to make your hot drink after.

Foil only boil.

Of course, you can do as you please.
