Well, the other turkey post reminded me I have a defrosted smoked turkey, still wrapped in shrink-wrapped plastic. However, it has been defrosted for about a week - I guess I need to toss it too?

Smoked turkey is already cooked and in a sealed bag should be fine; however, I would cut it up, repackage and freeze it today. Remember when you remove it from the freezer again to eat it that day. I know refreezing changes some in texture but at least you will have delicious smoked turkey meat!

I also would be sure it is fine, particularly since it is vac sealed/shrink wrapped.

If it's a real smoked turkey as opposed to the type you find in grocery store delis the smoke will help to preserve the meat also.

Thanks cando and yes, it is a real smoked turkey - not just smoked turkey deli meat - I am so relieved! Thanks.

Oh Alix - Had I known sooner (before I went to the grocery store) I would have used the smoked turkey in my "chicken" pot pie! I know that would have been tasty! I did add some as I was a bit short on chicken.
