Smoking wont do it unless you can remove all the fat and make jerky. If there is any fat, it will turn rancid. Commercial jerky uses preservatives.

Meat can be canned (pressure canner please- botulism is not good) or frozen. It is not just "packing in salt"- and smoking has to be done right.

Non iodized (kosher) salt is best. Yes, LEAN meat can be thin sliced, dried under heat. Called jerky.

Good topic to do some reading on.

Try canning Corned Beef. Better appearance, better taste!!

I do roast beef - I brown it with seasonings first then cut into pieces that will fit in the canning jar

Corned Beef - Just cut into pieces and follow the instructions for canning meat

Tuna - I do not pre-cook tuna, just cut the loins into pieces that fit the jars, add boiling water and salt then pressure can

Salmon - As with Tuna above.

Always pressure can and use new lids. The chances of sealing failure are reduced with new lids.

Make some jerky out of it. Easy to store and tastes pretty good.
