Best way to spoil meat in ARK Survival Ascended

Any meat you obtain in ARK Survival Ascended will spoil given enough time, even if refrigerated. If you're intentionally trying to spoil meat though, and want to increase your total yield, there is a simple trick you can do to speed up the process.

Meat spoils one at a time in a stack, regardless of how large or small it is. The spoiling timer only appears for the most recent piece of meat added to the stack, so no matter what, you cannot cause a stack of meat to spoil all at once. However, you can work around this limitation by separating stacks of meat into several smaller stacks in your inventory or any storage device. This will cause a spoil timer to appear for each separate stack (instead of just one).

This clever workaround of game logic allows you to spoil large sums of meat much more quickly, as each stack will spoil separately from each other. From an efficiency standpoint, there is no faster way to accumulate spoiled meat in the same amount of time.
