This page is about different kinds of Meats. For the item itself, see Meat.
There are 13 basic Meat food items in-game (16 in the Reign of Giants DLC, 26 in the Shipwrecked DLC), some of them with respective cooked and dried versions. Most meats are dropped by Mobs as loot, and fish can also be obtained from Ponds with a Fishing Rod. If a mob died from burning, the cooked variant of meat will be dropped instead (if available). Mobs such as Pigs, Spiders or Hounds will eat any form of dropped meat on the ground, including Pig Skins.
Additionally, Bunnymen will be aggressive towards a player if they have any item on this list.
Many of the meats can be dried on a Drying Rack, resulting in Jerky, a much longer-lasting food item with different Hunger, Sanity, and Health bonuses. Some of the meats can be used in Crock Pot recipes. An Egg is counted as an egg in a Crock Pot, and as meat elsewhere. Fishes are counted as both fish and meat in a Crock Pot, and as meat elsewhere.
- There are 10 Crock Pot recipes that utilize meat (12 in the Reign of Giants DLC, 14 in the Shipwrecked DLC).
- Meats (except for raw Monster Meat) in any state of spoilage can be given to the bird in a Birdcage to produce a fresh Egg.
- Meats can be given to Pigs to befriend them. If the Pig eats four of any of the health damaging Monster Foods, it will turn into a Werepig.
- Meats, except for raw and cooked Monster Meat and raw and Cooked Frog Legs, can be given to the Pig King in exchange for Gold Nuggets.
- In the Reign of Giants DLC, Moleworms can be used in the Crock Pot but do not count as Meat in any other action.
