  • I've been told up to a year as long as it's contained properly so i doesn't get freezer burn and stuff.

  • For optimum quality, freeze ground meats no longer than 3-4 months and solid cuts of meats (steaks, roasts) for up to 12 months. Larger & thicker cuts of meat, like a roast, will stand up to the longer freezing time better than smaller & thinner cuts. Whole poultry will maintain its quality for up to 12 months, but parts tend to start losing qaulity after 9 months.
