Smoking meat is a very effective way to cook and store meat beyond just a few days. In a survival situation, being able to smoke meat is vital because:
- In a longer than usual power outage situation, it allows you to preserve meat you have refrigerated or frozen before it spoils
- In a more primitive survival situation, such as you are lost in the wilderness, it allows you to hunt for larger game because you will not have to eat the meat quicker than it spoils
- In a long term survival situation, say the electric grid goes down, smoking lets you store meat for far longer than just cooking it
When you look at he fancy smoker gizmos you can buy, making a smoker might seem to be a Herculean task, but in reality, building a functional smoker is amazingly easy.
