What to do if you lose power and have 3 freezers full of meat

  1. Have on hand multiple food-grade 5-gallon buckets with lids, as many as you think you will need and then add extras!
  2. Non-iodized salt (Redmond’s Earth Salt, or pickling salt, or any non-iodized food-grade salt that you can buy in 25- to 50-lb bags), more than you think you will need.
  3. Brine as much meat as you are able.
  4. For detailed directions, see “Back to Basics, How to Learn and Enjoy Traditional American Skills”, Readers Digest, 1981, p224
  5. If you have any means of cooking such as a propane canning stove (e.g. Simply Canning-Outdoor stove, or Amazon-Outdoor propane canning stove) pressure-can as much meat as you are able.
  6. Build the smoker now and practice using it now. Luckybelly-21 Homemade Smoker Plans
  7. Give away any thawed meat that will otherwise go to waste.
