My Boy Scout Troop's favorite backpacking meal is based upon dried, salted duck legs, which are available around here in a few Chinese (Cantonese, to be specific) markets.
They're basically duck ham. Being dried and vacuum packed, they're lightweight and shelf-stable.
They're also delicious after about 20 mins. rehydration in water water.
(The whole dish is Duck Leg & Wild Mushroom Risotto. Not bad for a bunch of kids, eh?)
