Overview[edit | edit source]

Prime Meat Jerky is a food item in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is a very durable and long lasting source of food.

Prime Meat Jerky can be prepared by putting Cooked Prime Meat.png Cooked Prime Meat, Oil.png Oil and Sparkpowder.png Sparkpowder in the Preserving Bin.png Preserving Bin. It takes 36 minutes to turn the meat into jerky.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Upon consumption, Prime Meat Jerky restores 35.0 food points, which is the same as Cooked Prime Meat. However, it is very durable and can be stored for a long time without spoiling. It lasts 2 days in a survivors inventory, 8 days in a creature's inventory, 20 days in a Preserving Bin, and 200 days in a Refrigerator.

It can be used to tame wild Carnivores, but provides the same effect as Cooked Prime Meat.

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

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Jerky in real life must be made with raw meat in order to retain enough moisture to still be palatable, as opposed to cooked meat like in the game.
  • Raw Prime Meat spoils extremely fast, so taking a Campfire to cook Raw Prime Meat into Cooked Prime Meat to then make it into Prime Meat Jerky using a Preserving Bin is highly recommended.
