    I have a question for ya. Every July we have a big get together and i cook 100 pounds of the pork shoulder. The problem is, the price at that time is around $1.99 pound. I can buy it now for .89 per pound. Have you ever froze it and if so how does it hold up?

    I've frozen fresh whole butts for 5 months and then smoked them with normal results. At $.89, I'd fill my whole freezer.

    Hope this helps!

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    I found this:

    How long can I keep pork in the freezer?
    Generally, fresh cuts of pork, like roasts, chops and tenderloin, can be kept well-wrapped in the freezer for up to 6 months. Well-wrapped ground pork can be kept for about 3 months in the freezer.

    ^^^ 'Zactly! If you have a deepfreezer that'll keep them at 0*F even better. You can keep them for a couple years and you'll be fine.
