How do you re-heat Q?
 
Just had a thought while I'm sitting here waiting for my ribs to heat up. How do you guys re-heat? I nuc 'em on defrost sprayed with whatever I used or have left from smokin'. I get 'em just hot enough that holding them for too long burns the fingers, that way I get to keep eating :) I think this slower heating results in moister re-heated food.

What do other do?

I've got some pics, but need the other computer to resize and post.

Eric, a lot of us own the Food Saver vaccuum sealer. These bags of Q come out of the freezer or fridge and get dropped into boiling water. After about 15-20 minutes, depending on what it is that you're re-heating, the Q comes out ALMOST as good as the day you pulled it off the smoker!

Microwave works for me, Although I just put a butt in the oven that I didn't get to pull at my last session.

*ducking*

If I do it by the serving, either nuking or putting the vacuum sealed bags in boiling water. If I know I'm going to be reheating a whole butt or brisket, though, I like to put it in foil whole, then reheat in a 200 degree oven over a couple of hours, until it's to serving temp. I think leaving the meat whole keeps it more moist. This has worked great for meals for the next Friday night, or if I'm taking it into the office (I'll use a crockpot then).

I reheated 5lbs of pulled pork in a casserole dish in the oven. 300*, spinkled with apple juice, and covered with foil. Came out great. Chicken and ribs last week heated 250* covered with foil to keep in moisture.

I freeze leftovers vacume sealed in portions. Boil and eat, or 50% power nuked if in a hurry.

Throw some pulled pork on hot cast iron skillet. The rest of BBQ meats go in 450 degree hot oven on broil watch carefully turning once or more as needed. I eat it cold too. Heats up just fine in my stomach.

Aloha!

What Jeff and TY said.I love the food saver.

Jorge 03-05-2006 05:18 PM

I'm an oven guy. I'll cut a Foodsaver bag open and put the meat in a pan and reheat there. If it's pork Ill give it a little love with some apple juice, and cover it with foil. I do use the nuker but reheat it slowly. I took long enough to cook it, so I make sure I don't dry it out the second time around.

I only use the microwave in an emergency. In my opinion it gives the meat a 'different' flavor (especially if you leave it in too long and get it too hot). I don't know if it gets the fat too hot or what. My wife says I am crazy, but I swear I can tell if q has been warmed up in the microwave versus the oven.

Your not crazy. Nuking meat changes it. I do it, but only for a snack.

I can't remember where I read it, but someone with a food-saver likes to throw the bags into the dishwasher.

I typically plastic wrap my meat, and will reheat in that, or wrap over the plastic with foil.
