I have a bunch of ppl coming over Saturday. I am smoking a few butts & pulling Friday (so I dont have to mess around with it on Sat.). My intention is to warm the pulled pork saturday before serving. I am ikind of concerned that the meat will be dry if I smoke it and pull it the day before.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Like others said above, I provide multiple sauces, so we dont sauce the meat itself. Plus there are folks who can eat the meat but not the sauce...

If you're cooking Friday evening/night, I suggest wrapping them in foil and then wrapping them in towels, putting them in a warmer (cooler without any ice) overnight. The next morning they'll still be hot as **** and burning your fingers when you pull it.

Or, the bag sealed with some apple juice works (as described above). I suggest that you dont pull it Friday night; it will be dry. Mind you, worse things have happened in the scheme of life, but it'll be better if you pull it Saturday.

Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
