Default Brisket in the Freezer

I have a cryovac'ed packer from COSTCO that I stuck in the freezer in July. What's a realistic life expectancy for a frozen brisket. Freezer is in the 20* F range.

It should be fine. Thaw it out. If it looks ok and smells ok, it should be fine.

What Ty said.

I double checked good ole Google.
All the food safety sites say 6 to 12 months is OK "to assure quality taste" and stuff like that
May not be "Primo" any more, but if it looks and smells OK--I would "cook on"!

Well here is what the USDA says about freezing:

http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Fact_Sheets...zing/index.asp

My freezer is between -10F and -20F, so the food should be safe indefinitely, but the Wife gets upset when I pull something out that has been in there for a year. However, what she doesn't know doesn't hurt her.

If cryo, I usually say easily a year. But when I find a butt or picnic that was just in the styro glad wrap, its usually toast and freezer burned

Air is Bad

I keep a glass of ice in the freezer.
As long as the ice stays in cubes you have never had a defrost.

If nothing else you will probably be able to make the best pot of chili you've ever had.

The last sale on brisket I stocked up and found a hole in the cryovac when I got home. No problem since I was able to foodsaver it and made sure I cooked it fairly soon. Since then I've started filling the sink,cold water, and submerging them to look for leaks. Found one so far. Never thought to share that before, and I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of that.

Don't you know that what you did is considered a crime in some parts of the country? Consider yourself lucky.

All I can tell you is I have my freezer set to -20 and I have two 12 - 15 pounders that I am smoking Friday. I have had them out since Monday and they are still half frozen. Mkae sure you give time to defrost. I am hoping to inject tommorow evening. The meat is still very red and looks good. I get mine from SYSCO and it is in the CRYOPAC (very thick and hard to punch a hole in). The key as mentioned is how does it look and smell....
