    Having read none of the replies, I'll answer the original post.

    The only times I've done the "If You Could Only Have One Seasoning" thing have been when I was on Active Duty, which was a LONG time ago; and at those times, I had soy sauce packets from the Chinese take-out place just off-post.

    It wasn't as though I was being forced to choose only one. I've never met an NCO who cared whether his Soldiers took seasonings to the field - I certainly didn't. When we went to Ft. Irwin, California for 3-1/2 weeks in 2017, one of our Soldiers ostentatiously carried a Chalupa bottle around in his web gear. Not a single soul said anything against it, but several (including those considerably superior to him) commended him for his forethought.

    In my case, it simply never once occurred to me to take more than just the one. I suspect most Soldiers are of the same mind - if they think to bring any seasoning at all to the field, they'll bring one and be content with it. And there may be a deal of wisdom in this matter of contentment.

    So, salt is a given? Good.

    I would like the other one to be something with cayenne in it. If I have a choice, it would be a good cayenne sauce, since it carries along some salt and vinegar. Yum.

    Went to Gilroy, Ca last week and they had "Bull Shit" steak seasoning. Its smelled good, haven't tried it yet though. They also had "Aw Shit", "Chicken Shit" and "Special Shit". All the shit is tested in their "Shit Kitchen". I almost bought it because of the funny descriptions. You can get them on amazon, but I might wait until I run out of my "Texas Saltgrass Seven Seasoning"

    I suppose if I had to pick one, other than salt, I would go for maple syrup. Smoked, if possible. Makes a nice glaze on most meats and fish, good on most breakfast foods, especially on bacon. Nice calorie boost in the winter. My parents sent me a bottle of smoked maple syrup on my last deployment and I loved the depth that the smoke added to the flavor.

    My basic spice kit has 4: sea salt, black pepper, onion & garlic, and either Montreal Steak Spice or Old Bay. I've recently discovered Chinese 5 Spice and it may replace the OB/MSS come next refill time. Either that or I'm going to make a bigger spice kit. ;)

    Easy: Cattleman's Ranch. My local Big Y has it. I'm a salt and pepper guy normally, but this s*** is good on EVERYTHING! Meat, veggies, salad, sandwich, whatever.

    Salt. Salt is essential to live. Other spices are nice, but essential.

    Thanks to this thread, this is my pantry now. So far, I've tried it on Rainbow Trout, Brussels sprouts and Pork loin and I love it. Thanks, folks!

    I've yet to find something that it doesn't go with. Potatoes, squash/zuchinni, mushrooms, pork, fish, and of course steak and burgers. It's quite versatile and very delicious. They also have a "Devil's Spit" variety that brings some heat to the party but the standard is my go to.
