Default How long to keep pork butt in refrigerator?

Question for the experts. Pork butt is .98 a pound here Sunday, Monday and
Tuesday. If I buy it Tuesday and don't use it until Saturday is it alright
to keep it in the refrigerator instead of freezing? How long would you keep
a pork butt refrgerated instead of freezing? Does store wrapping versus
cryo-packing make a difference in your decision?
Thank you,
Ric in Rock Hill

It's probably 5 or 6 weeks old when you bought it.
Another 5 days ain't gonna hurt.

Food service rules here in TX says that thawed food must be consumed or
discarded in 1 week.

The cryo packed stuff is good for about 10 or 12 years I think. I've kept
those meats for weeks with no adverse affects.

The regular wrapping is good for 5 to 7 days. Maybe more, but I don't go
beyond that. I'd buy on Tuesday and not worry at all.

And, once you have smoked the shoulders and pulled them to make vitamin P,
how long will that last in the refrigerator? Is there any way to cook one
day and serve 2-3 days later and still have it taste as good?

The trick is to store it well sealed reheat it gently Should be good for
four or five days. Anything longer I'd freeze in a Foodsaver bag.

Brine it! Use at least 1 oz by weight of salt and whatever else suits you.
If you really want to preserve it brine it with Morton's Tenderquick.

(for clarity)
Was that "1 oz per lb of meat" or "1 oz per gallon of water" or ?


minimum of 1 oz salt per quart of water - Sorry for the confusion

Just for the record, I bought a two pack of cryovaced pork butts on Jan
28th. The sell-by date was Feb 7th. I just cooked them last night and
they were just fine.

Only applies to Cryovaced pork.

I think he means Cryovaced, not pork. This thread happened to be pork. It
is an oxygen free atmosphere and meat lasts a very long time that way.

In my experience, no. It never tastes as good as fresh off the pit. I'm a
picky bitch though.
