I recently held a 13 lb CAB packer for 47 days before cooking it. Cryo was tight, and it was in a seldom-opened shop fridge. I STILL opened it up outdoors, just in case it had turned. No problem a'tall. Very tender, beefier than most. I regularly keep briskets like that for several weeks with good results. Pork on the other hand, I just don't trust. You never hear of better restaurants selling "aged pork" as opposed to "aged beef". Just based on my own experience, aged pork doesn't improve with wet-aging. It's just... well, old and stinky and .

Just my two cents, for whatever that's worth these days.
