If your goal is to store fat, why bother making pemmican or erbswurst ? Why not just store the fat on it's own? It gives you a ton more options if you store individual ingredients instead of mixing them.
... unless you're looking for a nutritional snack or meal should no other food be available.

Sure, although if you've stored crisp dried jerky and rendered tallow (plus dried berries/peas/whatever else you want in there), you can make such snacks from them as/when/in the exact quantity wanted.

Basic ingredients always offer the most flexibility, plus you can store each for exactly its own storage life. (Dry jerky will outlast tallow and dried peas and onions will outlast both unless you've boiled all the fat out of the jerky as well as drying it crisp.)
But I was under the impression that pemmican has a much longer shelf life than the items you've mentioned above have on their own. I've never heard of the OP's recipe but pemmican (if I'm not mistaken) has an exceptionally long shelf life.
