RIX, refrigerator freezer is a different matter than a dedicated deep freeze. The freezer that is part of your fridge does not get nearly as cold as a deep freeze, and the temps fluctuate more.

However, you will be fine in a 3-4 week time frame. A solid chunk of meat like a pork butt should be fine in a good fridge freezer for at least 3 months if it is wrapped securely.
