Welcome to SMF Yt. Stop into the Roll Call forum and give us an intro post.

This link will take you to a recent post from the FDA on length of time for cold food storage saftey:

Should be, so long as it wasn't thawed and is still sealed.

I'm no FDA boy (I didn't even stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night), but I will say that I cooked a turkey last week that had been in the freezer since December. I didn't grow a third eye or sit on the throne for extended periods. I think you'll be OK, if you follow the advise mentioned above.

Smokin Nutz, you just might be a little nuts. :-)

We generally buy 4 or 5 turkeys at Thanksgiving when they are outragously cheap. The last one usually is getting used just before Thanksgiving the following year.
