hey all, How long will pulled pork stay good for in the fridge? I am planning on vac sealing it. I need to cook prior to the feeding frenzy. I can of course freeze it but I would rather not.

Cheers,
Ed

About a week ... but longer if you keep it sealed up.

I found this information on a website:

http://www.healthgoods.com/Education/Nu ... elines.htm

Cured Meat

Cured, smoked, and ready-to-eat meats include ham, bacon, smoked pork and sausage products. The heat, smoking and processing of these items inactivates most bacteria and enzymes. Leave these products in their original wrapping to prevent further contamination. Once opened, most cured meat products will stay fresh under refrigeration for approximately a week and should be stored in airtight containers to prevent drying out of the meat and odors in the refrigerator. Do not freeze luncheon meats.

I agree, a week is best... but I have been know to go two weeks because our fridge is extremely cold (It freezes water and tea in 2 to 3 days so we have to drink it fast)., therefore the meat stays good longer.

If you seal it and need to wait longer than a week, you can always freeze it and remove it from the freezer 2 to 3 days prior to needing it.

As far as freezing vac-sealed pork goes, I froze some pulled pork 2 months ago and served it to some friends last night. It was still in excellent shape and my guests loved it.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

We are still eating some pulled pork left over from my son's grad party held on Memorial Day of '07.

It was stored in ZipLok freezer bags, the air pushed out and froze. I can tell no appreciable difference in the meat at over a year old.
I like it fast, fun or tasty.

That's got me thinking that maybe I ought to cook up a few shoulders in a couple weeks time, and then freeze them. Pulled pork would be great for lunch in the winter months.

Hey Canada. I beat 'ya to it. I did that last fall and had pulled pork all winter long and I didn't even have to go outside in the cold. Actually, I still have a little bit left.

You see? That's why I love this site. Thanks for the great feedback, Raiders! :D I'll see if there are any pork butts or picnics on sale the next time I go grocery shopping.
