If vac-sealed you are good for 2 years, but it never lasts that long....

I have has some that dropped to the back and bottom of the freezer and got lost for over 1 year and it was still great!!!

Now I reorganize the freezers every 6 months to try and prevent this, by turning some of the leftovers into soups. stews, casseroles, ans/or tacos..

Never.

Frozen food doesn't go bad, so you will never need to throw it away.

It would probably be different without the vacuum sealed bag but with it you'll be able to keep your butt almost indefinitely as long as it stays frozen!

Vacuum sealed meat stays good for up to 2 years. Probably longer than that, but if you have over 2 year old frozen meat, you aren't eating enough meat. I seal up smoked chicken, pulled pork, racks of ribs, brisket, etc all the time for reheating at a later time.

If your family is like mine, it will not last in the freezer that long b/c it gets eaten. I use ziplock bags and thaw out in fridge. Heat up on a pan with EVOO or zap in microwave.

I smoke pork butts, pull them, add back the juice, mix and put in zip lock freezer bags with all the air pushed out, pretty flat and about an inch thick or so. Stack them in the freezer and take them out and put in the fridge to thaw as needed. My wife doesn't like smoked food so when I fire up the smoker I make a decent batch to eat on over the next several weeks/months.

It can go bad in the fridge but I think you're golden as long as you want in the freezer.

I do this too but use a vacuumsealer. When you add back the juice (which includes some fat) the fat will solidify and you'll be able to see it in your meat. But I like it in there so when I toss the vacuum-sealed bag into a pot of water to reheat it comes out moist and delicious. Its really a great way to store your pulled pork for an extended period of time.

I vacuum seal pulled pork all the time...stick it in a vacuum bag and add some of the juices....I stack it unsealed in my freezer overnight....then vacuum seal it...that way I don't get juice running all over my sealer...
