I am planning my first smoke next weekend. I went ahead and bought 2 butts cryo-packed at Sam's lastnight. Question 1: How long will the butt stay in the fridge? The sell by date is the 13th of this month. Or should I freeze it and pull a couple days ahead of time? Question 2: Being this is my first smoke, I really don't want to do the 2 butts. If the answer to question 1 is freeze it, should I keep them cryo packed and freeze them or separate them now into freezer bags. Then I don't have to thaw and refreeze one of them, which I would assume could hurt the taste ultimately. I don't currently own a Food Saver yet. I don't really have the funds quite yet to snatch one of those up after getting all my smoking stuff, although I have my eye open on eBay.
