    How long can you keep a cryo-packed butt in the freezer and still be good, I just found one in the back of mine

     Thaw it and open it. You WILL know if it's bad.

    I would say aybe a month. That's as long as I have ever had one in our freezer. Really you can have them in there for a long time now I year should be any harm to it like freezer burn or anything then go for it. Whats the worst thing you drfrost it and then throw it away.

    The USDA recommends 4-12 months for freezing.

    As long as it isn't freezer burnt I would go for it.

    If it's been held at 0 F, it's safe indefinately. Safe and good quality are totally different though.
