    I've wondered about this and have done it a couple times. I think once or twice should be fine but that's it.

    What I started doing is after I buy the meat, I take it out the package and put them in individual ziploc bags - that way I can just defrost what I plan to eat.

    Easy answer: Yes. As long as there is a kill step before you eat it, and the meat was not rancid to begin with, it's generally fine.

    Long answer: Meat should only be frozen once. Meat is storable in a fridge below 41 degrees for around seven days, and a few months if kept frozen.

    If you keep it longer than that make sure to cook it to temp. Ground meats should hit at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Make sure your leftovers are finished up in a week or less, especially if you put beans in the chili icon_smile.gif

    This is pretty serious stuff. You should contact your local Department of Health immediately. They will be able to assist you. They might even inspect your apartment/kitchen and grade you based on your cooking habits. 1-800-HEALTH

    Yes, absolutely. Meat has 2 shelf lives basically, the time before you need to cook it, and then after you've cooked it, the same shelf life of any prepared food. Eat it within a few days and you'll be fine.

    good lord, so much drama over dead meat. You're a carnivore. Admit it!

    Anyway, fresh uncoooked meat need to be frozen almost today, if you're not going to deal with it.

    If you froze it uncookded, it can last a few months.

    If you did something creative and cooked it, you can store it in the freezer for 6 months or so.

    Assuming that's a deepfreeze, and not a fridge freezer.

    If you want a fridge freezer answer, you're going to have to hook up :-)

    I had to throw out some bad bacon the other day. I still ate some of it. My stomach was not happy :s

    Is there really anything such as "good" dead animal flesh?

    Eat a vegetable or a soybean instead.

    I know lots of guys whose meat expired years ago. And it's still edible, if not as enjoyable. Oh, wait... you mean the kind you buy in the supermarket? Ah, OK, never mind... icon_redface.gif

    Generally You're safe if it doesn't smell or taste off, The great thing about meat is it is very very obvious when it has turned. In a Professional kitchen there is a rule of thumb that anything meat or dairy related can not be stored between 40-165 degrees Fahrenheit for more than four hours. but you can always use the Old adage when in doubt throw it out.


    As far as your ground Turkey, I'd say you're probably fine, I wouldn't eat on it for a week, but you're probably good for a day or two. Freezing slows bacterial growth and if you heat the chili to a good boil you'll eliminate most if not all of the harmful bacteria.

    The expiration dates on food, in general are conservative estimates, it's up to you to know what to look for as to indicators of food quality and freshness.


    Personally as a chef, I just chuck all meat I buy into the freezer and thaw as I use it, this way I can buy a 6 pack of say pork chops and not worry about them spoiling before i eat them all.

    They look like long potato chips.

    I ain't complaining!

    Also turkey bacon is good. But some people keep insisting turkey is also an animal.

    theantijock saidSome of the morningstar fake meat is pretty good (well, after you get used to it). Their bacon, however, not so much.

    Where I trail ride are wild turkeys. Very fun to watch them. Caught this guy with cell phone...

    Fresh enough?


    I want to shave a wing and bite it :E

    Lots of good meat in an animal head. I'd happily eat that over some highly processed, soy-based crap from a factory.
