Hi all. I have a RD cryo vac original sealed large flank in my very cold (33*) basement fridge. I think I've had it for close to 3 months. I did some research online and it seems as though it would still be good.
My intention when I bought it was to make jerky out of it when I got around to it. I wanna use it in the next few days.
I understand that it will smell when I open it. It hasn't seemed to turn any strange colors.
What I really wanna know is if I cure and smoke some jerky out of it am I in danger of getting anyone sick.
I couldn't find anything on line that says the beef has gone bad to the point of making someone ill. Im thinking a strong beef flavor and more tender would be a good thing for jerky.
Any opinions are greatly appreciated. Also, it has stayed at the low temp the whole time and there are no leaks in the original cryo from RD.
