A dehydrator is a great investment to help preserve meat; alternatively you can use a solar dehydrator or air cure meat as with jerky (click for previous post on making beef jerky without a dehydrator).

The problems come when the power’s out, the sun isn’t shining and the climate is wet/humid… This is where preserving meat with salt comes into its own and it is for this reason that I recommend all preppers store a good amount of salt.  If you have salt, you can preserve meat in all situations and weather conditions. See below for a basic tutorial on how to preserve meat with salt.
