I have had a turkey freezer since Thanksgiving last year. Do you think it will still be good?
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:
cool link, thanks for the info
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.
I think it is about time to fire that bad boy up
well, was diggin thru freezer and found a quick froze turkey from .........dec 2005.............wasnt freeze burnt,or dry,looked like the day we put in,so ibrined it,and thru on smoker........I couldnt tell any diff from a fresh one.....honest injun ! usally dont keep that long,but it crawled to bottom of freezer, below zero temp and vac sealed..

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.
