    I'm stocking up for the holidays and beyond, and wanted to get some advice on how others have stored their goods.  Specifically I am talking about cold smoked cheese, beef jerky and smoked salmon.  

    Everything is vac-sealed.  Should I, can I freeze?  If I don't how long will it keep?

    Thanks for the help

    I freeze all of the meats. Most vac-packed meats are good for up to a year, maybe a bit more. Fish 6-8 months.  The cheese you want to keep refrigerated. I prefer to wax my cheese rather than vac pac it. I am eating smoked cheese that is now going on almost 3 years old.

    Soft cheese should be refrigerated, Hard cheese can be vac sealed and stored in a cool room or refrigerated if you like.

    After a week in the fridge the fish needs to be frozen.

    If it was properly cured you should be fine.​
