Cleaning out the chest freezer this evening, I came across some beef roasts that have been around for a few years. I'm not worried for safety - they've been kept at 0 or below for the duration. Power outages have been brief and the freezer never lost significant temperature. I'm not worked up over quality issues since they're wrapped tightly in plastic and foil - but Mrs Papi won't touch the stuff in a meal. So I'm going to defrost and marinade, smoke em a little and dehydrate for jerky. Does anyone have first hand experience that wants to speak up and tell me I'm wasting my time and Hickory?
