I've never had any in the freezer for that long, but at shorter times I am always amazed at the smokey taste when you open the vac pack bag.
They claim it will last longer than that without freezer burn.

I've had PP vac sealed and frozen for close to a year ~ Just like it was cooked today when I nuked it.

If you really feel concerned about freezer burn you could vacuum them and then add a layer or two of plain ole white freezer paper on top of the vac pack. That extra insulation should insure they'll be fine.

According to the FoodSaver applications, frozen meat will last for 2-3 years. I believe that!

I'm with the Joker on this. I've had pulled pork vacuum sealed for six months and you couldn't tell it from frozen last week pulled pork. I'm curious what others with more experience say about brisket.

I have had brisket 6 months in vacumn, pulled pork 8 months, chicken 6 months and leg of lamb 1 year. All were just like the day I put them in there!

They'll be fine, that's probably the biggest selling point of vacum sealers, is that your food will last longer when frozen. I, also, have had BBQ that has been in the freezer past 6 months and it is fine.

Sounds like you might already have one but if you don't, GET ONE! LOL! Ours paid for it self in less than a year with buying in bulk at Sam's and cooking larger amounts.
