    It's possible to can both raw and cooked meats, but like Dean asked, what specific meats?

    ALL meat must be canned using a pressure CANNER, not pressure cooker. They are NOT the same.

    Please, please, please take the time to read several online pubs about home preservation and canning. Better safe than sorry when it comes to feeding yourself and family.
