Test Kitchen: Salami

We sampled 50 jerkies, salamis, and summer sausages to find the tastiest and longest-lasting. Here’s how to choose, use, and make trail-worthy meats.

More Trail-Friendly Meats

>> Cooked/shelf-stable bacon Heat briefly on a skillet and serve with eggs, or add to a sandwich.
>> Freeze-dried Rehydrate crumbled sausage and ground beef (chicken chunks have a reputation for staying rubbery) with hot water, then use for tacos or stir into pasta sauce.
>> Prosciutto Split a packet between two meals: mix into grits for breakfast, wrap around apple slices for lunch.
>> Spam Hold your prejudice. This meat is just pork, water, salt, sugar, and potato starch, and it makes a tasty burger. It’s also now available in trail-worthy, single-serving packs.
