I highly recommend a few 1oz spices for a Philmont trek. I read on this forum that some Old Bay seasoning was a good thing, so I went ahead and took a spice missile (https://gsioutdoors.com/spice-missile.html). I put in Mrs. Dash, black pepper, black and red mix and some Grandpa Herb’s herbs. I did not take salt, because I knew that the trail food would be naturally salty.
The spice missile does a good job of keeping things separated but is a bit heavy and hard to use sometimes. Small spice shakers could do the job with a little less weight and more spice.
I didn’t fill the black pepper and I should have. That was the first thing to run out. The Herb’s herbs seemed to be the most popular, but since I had two full sections of that, it didn’t run out until near the end. The Mrs. Dash was not as well liked and survived to the end.
The boys really liked the ability to change up the flavor of the meals, from straight salty, to a spicier blend. If I had to do it over, I would take a 1oz shaker of a cajun blend, 1oz of black pepper and 2 oz of Herb’s.Aug 29, 2019 at 1:38 am #3608036

Philmont’s food, though very nutritious, tends to be a little bland so as not to offend sensitive tastes.
We have carried Coghlan’s Multi Spice Wheel and Morton Seasoned Salt. The spice wheel gives you more options, but the seasoned salt does a nice job of just enhancing the flavors. And I’m not too sure Philmont’s food has much sodium.
We don’t spice the whole pot but let each camper season his bowl to his tastes.

For our 2019 crew 721-H I carried;
6 oz bottle of Tiger Sauce 90% got used
2.65 oz shaker of Old bay 50% used.
2.75 oz shaker of roasted garlic and herb powder about 40% used.
After the chuck wagon meal at Clark’s Fork I handed them to a very appreciative camp cook.
Also carried two bottles of bacon bits, they got fully used.
