Reheating?
« on: June 13, 2019, 09:11:49 AM »
For my sons 1st birthday next month im gonna do 2 pork butts, but the party is at noon. So im planning on doing them the day before.
Question is, how do you guys go about cooking, storing and reheating the next day?

Vacuum seal pulled pork in 1 lb bags with juice, flatten and freeze if you can cook them ahead of time... but if yer gonna cook the day before the gig, flatten then just refrigerate. Drop the bags in a pot of simmering water for 10-15 minutes, remove from bag, and serve. Been doing it this way for years... :-)

Do your cook, pull when hot/to warm, put in large aluminum pan and cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate, warm back up in oven or on the grill if so desired. I have done it this way numerous times. Be sure and save as much juice from the cook to moisten the pork when warming up. Did your son request pork ? LOL

Yep what they said.

Iíll add...

Donít shred it. Leave it in large chunks as possible (the individual muscles). Get off as much connective fat when ďchunkingĒ it so that way when you shred it...itís all meat.

Thanks. I've found its easier to get some of that fat off when it's warm (before you put it away) rather than on the other end.

I love these threads. I always learn something new each time. I do as hawgheaven does when I freeze and it works perfect. Heck, you could make it months in advance lol. Seriously you could though.

I will give JEBIVís method a try next time I do it a day in advance. That would be way easier if just refrigerating.

Stick with the pulled pork. Can't go wrong with pulled pork in a group situation. PP is very forgiving and does not hold a grudge if you take a wrong turn somewhere. You DON"T want to do your first ever brisket for a group gathering... they are a different beast!

Start it the night before, foil and cooler it when itís done. It will still be hot at noon.
