Freezing Pork Butt - Good or Bad

BigWaderBigWader Posts: 587

What's the consensus on freezing pork butt when on sale for using later on the egg?

Local stores are running adds now for the sausage makers (pork shoulder, pork leg) for making sausages/hams in the cold cellars.  Best price I've seen is $1/lb.

So can I load the freezer for later?

  • Oh yeah. Sam's has a good price on them and they come in a two pack. I have one frozen as we speak. Give it a good day to defrost and rock and roll.

    Or put it on frozen and give it a couple of hours extra

  • Lord i hope it's ok...I've been doing it with pork, ribs, chicken, beef for a year and a half now.  Except, I do vacuum seal everything, even left overs.

    No issue at all, have been doing this for years when I find a good deal, they're usually vacuum sealed and freeze just fine for up to a year. Naturally fresh is best but you should be just fine.

  • I prefer fresh for making sausage, but when the sales are on I buy more and freeze.  Most people will never be able to tell the difference.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!
