    Scenario: Meat in the freezer

    Let's say you just went grocery shopping and your freezer is filled with meat when the SHTF happened.
    No power, too. No generator.

    You can't possibly eat all the meat. What do you do?

    Turn it into jerky old school. You could salt cure it. You could smoke it. Can it. No need for electric when there is fire.

    None of mine is ground. I like to grind my own or buy it fresh ground, never frozen.

    This is an already planned scenario, long term loss of power, meats would be processed out of freezer ASAP while running genset to keep cool.
    Jerk some, run most through a meat grinder then run through canning operation, no electricity required for either.
    Give the dogs a nice treat of the lower quality stuff, then BBQ the remainder.
    I have three gensets.

    can or dry as jerky. Cooked meat will last longer so cook away. It could buy you a couple more days.

    No, I don't have canning supplies, no dehydrator.

    Let's say about 10 lbs will be hamburger.
