Preserving food is always a good idea, but when storing meats conventional storage methods can be energy intensive, (such as pressure canning), or potentially useless, (such as a freezer full of meat in a black out). It’s also useful when camping, hiking, or if you are in a situation when you don’t have access to a refrigerator. Fortunately there are other methods of preserving meat, and I’ve been experimenting with them for my own food storage. Recently I attempted oven beef jerky and was quite happy with the results.
