My family is still enjoying 2005 meat. My processor uses the vacuum sealer. Keeping the air away that causes freezer burn is the key to making your meat last longer.

i'd eat it up . if vacum sealed about 1 1/2 years maybe two but you would be pushing it . Heck just eat it ,it doesn't last that long around my house

same here. when I get meat processed, I have it vacuum sealed, and when I do it myself, I use the Food Saver.

I have a roast in the crock pot as we speak, from 10/06. I expect it to be delicious. I just use freezer paper, got no use for those vaccum sealers. They're expensive, and the seals fail quite often.

I've never had a seal fail?? I have eaten meat two years old that was vaccuum sealed and it was fine!

I never have meat left over personally, but you can tell when its freezer burnt by colour and smell. If just touched trim off the burn and the rest should be fine. I have doneit many times for people for sausage that was packaged poorlyand it turns out just fine. If it smells off then I wouldn't eat it.

If packaged properly due to the lack of fat in venison it should last 12 months. I use a vac pack for sausage typically, when it comes to steaks, roasts or hamburgerI double wrap and have heard many times from customers that the meat is just fine the next year with this method.
