How long will smoked meat keep?

  1. I have been arguing lately on how long you can keep smoked ribs, pork, chicken in a refrigerator before it goes bad. Anyone know the limits.

    Depends on the product, how it is packaged and stored (canned, dehydrated, refrigerated or frozen).
  3. If I just wrap in saran wrap or put in zip lock bag.

    Our rule of thumb is if it is still in the fridge a week later, it gets tossed. Most of the time, when I do a big smoke and we have some leftovers, I'll keep enough out for the next day's lunch and freeze the rest. However, lately there haven't been that many leftovers... must mean I'm gettin' good at this... [​IMG]

    Depends on how cold it is in there.
    Anything pushed to the back of my fridge is lightly frozen and somewhat stiff. It will keep for several weeks back there. I used to use it for lagering beer now it's storing smoked meat.
