So I was wondering what are the best ways to preserve meat/smoked meat, in the event of a long term power outage, meaning we do not have freezers and fridges? I am interested in multiple methods, some stuff I already know, but put all ideas out there. I know smoke and salt keep away the nasties, but for how long. Is there a way to smoke thing to make last a long time? How did the Pioneers and etc. do it?
