Butt in cryovac - how long w/o freezing?

I got a great price on about 15 lbs of shoulder on Sunday, packed in cryovac, and now realize I've got no time to do a low-and-slow until next week.

Here's my potentially stupid question:

How long can I keep a cryovac-packed shoulder without resorting to freezing it? I figure once frozen its a looonnnggg defrost.

Pack date on the shoulder was 11/02 per the label.

Since I suspect I'm going to have to freeze it, does anyone have experience enough to recommend the best way to defrost 15 lbs of butt?

Thanks for the help everybody.

Incidentally this is my first time on the forum since the format change, wow :woohoo: this is better.
