I've had the rings have some kind of chemical reaction or oxidation and get stuck on.

Do any of you have anything to add about a pressure canner as an over all good tool to have? Good or bad? Tips or tricks?
I don't NEED a "pressure canner".

All I need is to show up at YOUR place at 0400 with enough force....

As a kid I remember seeing canning done with wax to seal the food.

My wife cans fruit butter and apple sauce and we get rings stuck on pretty well, but they can still be knocked off. I would just buy more rings, unless you never want stack or move them until you are ready to use them. YMMV.

Take a look at all of his posts over the last few days- there's a common tone, a trend.

Reminds me of a guy I saw a few years back on the one episode of Doomsday Preppers I watched (who was arrested after the episode aired for being a felon in possession of a firearm). His "plan" was a surplus K pot, home made rifle plates to protect his 300lb+ frame, and be a "maurader", plundering and stealing what he needed...

He needs to realize that that philosophy could easily be turned back on him if he pissed off the wrong people, and I'm one of those.

Just make sure that you do not bite off more than you can chew.

My wife and I made a few upgrades to the house recently. Here are a few pictures of one of the upgrades.

For some reason these picture will only post 90 degrees out, I can not figure it out. But you get the idea I would think.

He certainly has things figured out.....

I do what I can with putting 3 inch screws in the locking plate, and door hinges. Not perfect, but better than nothing. Especially when it is an apartment and I can't change much.

Some real good advice here. We use pressure cookers as opposed to canners. The "jiggler" on top gives a little leeway as far as pressure control goes. Tha post about using the canner/cooker to reduce the load on the freezer is true. If you don't have a root cellar, a closet on the north side of the house will do very well and you'd be surprised how much food one can squirrel away in a limited space if you try.

Removing rings is another real good idea, when we first started I left the rings on and had a heckofa hard time getting some off.

Never could get beef to can well. It always seems to fall apart into "beef fibers" and hamburg meat turns into liquid meat. Pork, chicken and turkey all can very well and the texture doesn't turn into mush.

I'd highly recommend the Ball big book of canning and preserving.
Its the bible of canners.

I don't want to start another thread about it. But a pressure canner/cooker can be a poor mans Autoclave. In a SHTF, it's possible to need something like that for sterilizing surgical tools. Even something as simple a popping a "Boil" would be better done with a microbe free tool.

I have a natural gas backup generator, and we have a natural gas well on the property. The boss and I actually have a nice set up. We have a bit over 23 acres, a large pond that has fish, and our nearest neighbor, is about a half mile away. I also have two old dug wells, that still have clean water. We can everything, and have a large freezer. Ive shot deer, and turkeys off the back deck

4.) secure lids and put in pressure canner.
5.) process at 10 psi for: qts - 90 min., pts - 75 min.
Folks that come over for a meal (who don't like deer) can't even tell it's deer
We do ours very similar but add beef fat to the mix to help with the lean-ness of the meat and chase off any gamey taste.
