The Smokehouse is a Structure in the Primitive+-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.


The Smokehouse extends spoil timers by 15x.

Used to make Jerky, keep in mind that on Primitive+ only Organic Oil works.

However you can also use Salt or Crude Oil and sparkpowder for making Salted Jerky with regular Cooked Meat or for Salted Prime Jerky with Cooked Prime Meat.
