Overview[]

Salted Jerky is a food item in the Primitive + DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved. It is a very durable and long lasting source of food.

Cooked Meat Jerky can be prepared by putting Cooked Meat, Crude Oil (Primitive Plus), Salt (Primitive Plus) and Sparkpowder in the Smokehouse (Primitive Plus). It takes 36 Mins to turn the meat into jerky.

You can also use Organic Oil (Primitive Plus) instead of Crude Oil. Jerky created in different ways will not stack together, because jerky from organic oil has its own ItemClassString.

Usage[]

Upon consumption, Salted Jerky restores 20.0 food points, just like Cooked Meat. However, it is very durable and can be stored for a long time without spoiling. If stored in the Preserving Bin, it lasts 20 days.

It can be used to tame wild Carnivores, but it is not advised to do so because it is expensive to make, and grants no taming benefits over other types of meat.

It is also used as an ingredient for making the following Kibbles:

Notes/Trivia[]

  • Despite what the in game description says, Salted Jerky has an identical spoil time to normal jerky.
