Burnt Deer Meat

Burnt Deer Meat is an item in Rust obtained when deer meat is cooked for too long. It is regarded as a mistake and undesirable food choice. Consuming Burnt Deer Meat will reduce your health, making it important to monitor your cooking times closely. This item is a result of overcooking, which can happen when players leave the meat on the fire for an extended period.

To avoid burning deer meat, pay close attention to the cooking progress and remove the meat from the heat source as soon as it's properly cooked. Properly cooked deer meat can provide significant nutritional value, including health regeneration. Conversely, burnt meat not only fails to deliver these benefits but also poses a hazard to your in-game health.

While Burnt Deer Meat is not totally useless — it can still be consumed in emergency situations when no other food sources are available, or it can be used to lure away wildlife or distract other players. However, this should only be as a last resort, as the health risks usually outweigh the benefits. To make the most of your hunting expeditions and to keep your character in top shape, always remember to manage your cooking times effectively.
