I used my rudimentary search skills to look for info on how long raw food can be frozen. I turned up this thread:

which seems to indicate that food can be frozen pretty much indefinitely, but that some degradation in quality is likely to occur. I'm curious because I have a brisket and a butt that have been in the freezer (chest-type) since last summer. The brisket is cryo-ed, but the butt was in a double cryo, which I opened so I could cook one. I wrapped the other up at tightly as I could and froze it. Over the last year I've failed to plan a thaw far enough in advance to cook them, so I've ended up just buying more. (I have't taken them out and let them partially thaw.)

I'm not concerned that they may have gone bad, but I'd be interested to hear anecdotal experiences about long-term freezing. What effects have you noticed in situations like this?
