How to Preserve Meat


This is a way to preserve meat without power. It’s very effective. This was handed down to me from an old backwoods Vermonter. You an use this meat by reconstituting in a gravy or soup. Keeps for over 2 years.

    @OVER9000NUKES That’s right.
    Meat is murder.
    Tasty tasty murder.

    @cole91v During a longterm SHTF, you would have to go back to slaughtering animals in cool weather, spring or fall. backyard meat houses and garages are still used to hang deer in. You would simply let the meat sit somewhere cool over night to soak in the soda and salt.

  3. Is it a essential/important part of the procedure to let it sit in the frig for one night before drying it? In a SHTF situation, I would not have the means for long term off grid power.

    Nice vid though. Cheers.

    @marieatthelake either you are missing a major part of this video or I don’t understand your question

    If the grid went down, how would you store the meat?

    @OVER9000NUKES LOL!!! you think I don’t know it’s a dead animal? I know it’s a dead tasty animal. I just got done eating another dead animal tonight and fed it to my wife and kids as well.
    If you are gonna start cutting, start with the juglar.

    @JOHNNYH8STHENWO Beef and venison is the only meats I have tried.

    What other meats can you do this with?

  14. JOHNNYH8STHENWO | June 7, 2010 at 10:46 am |

    I’m going to have to go through these videos. Great information. Your interview with DEMCAD was awesome as well!!

    Removing the fat and salting the meat makes a hard enviroment for mold and bacteria to live. I have been able to keep the meat for two years in a cool dark place. ( see info box) Not cool as in refrigerator, cool as in basement cool. You will have to do your own experiments in your particuliar enviroment. Good luck.

    Thanks. but how long will this meat store and at what temp? the text at the end left that part out. Also, in the desert climates, how long do you think this will last?

    @Yankeeprepper cool thanks 🙂

    canning salt or pickling salt has no iodine in it. You can buy it at any grocery store it usually comes in a green box. You can use regular table salt if you has too. No big deal.

  20. hendotintco | June 7, 2010 at 1:53 pm |

    canning salt?is that a nitrate type of salt?like quick cure it.?.

  21. note to self,,, read comments before posting question. thanx bro

    Great vid, I guess if the power went out that would also be a good way to preserve the meat in the freezer so it didn’t rot.

    Preserved meat, dried fruit and veggies would seem pretty darn good compared to what the people of Haiti are getting right now.

    We have no idea when that could be us. But sooner or later every group of people I ever heard of, ends up getting it.
