Buckboard Bacon- How long will it keep?

I know this is salt cured and smoked, seems like that might preserve it for a bit longer than normal. Anyone have an idea on how long this will keep in the fridge?
Gave a bunch out to friends, and want to make sure they use it up before it expires.

    I have kept some for 8-10 days in the frig and just as good as the first day.

    cured and salted.... well. i'm the wrong guy to ask.
    i would say they need to hurry up before it's third or fourth birthday. hahaha

    if they freeze it, it's be safe twenty years from now. did you vacuum seal it? how was it wrapped?

    no reason to worry about it for a month or more in a fridge that holds proper temps. that's a psychological number i'm throwing out. i think it'd be good a LOT longer than that, but folks don't tend to trust "home made" stuff that much.
