    I remember reading something about this, I can't find the link at the moment but will look later at home.

    Basically you get the leanest ground beef you can, pan fry it, bake it or in my case use a professional dehydrator and then store it.

    So what I am wondering is, if you dehydrated the meat, stored it in mason jars that you vacuum sealed how long could you expect them to last?

    Also, if you salt it a little heavier would that make any difference how long it would store.

    I remember reading somewhere about this, and if my memory isn't gone completely, I think the title was "Hamburger Rocks". The article basically stated what you just said. After cooking thoroughly, then put it into Mason/Ball jars, and sealing.
