Having meat in your food storage is the best thing you could do as this will provide you and your family with vital protein, vitamins, minerals and calories you need to survive.
The biggest issue with storing meat is relying on the electricity to keep your meat cold or frozen. My wife and I have hundreds of pounds of meat frozen in our garage. If the power goes out for longer than a day I have to use the generator to power the freezer. What if there was no gas? We would be in trouble.
Well, luckily there are 5 different methods of keeping meat for the long term without freezing or refrigerating meat. Over at the tin hat ranch they have compiled 5 tried and trusted ways you can preserver and keep your meat so you don’t have to rely on the grid.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
