Bingo! Reheat in a steampan on the smoker. When I'm cooking a lot of butts, I put three to a pan when finishing them. They go from the cooker to refrigeration and back to cooker to reheat. Once reheated, I pull them in the pan. I like reheating whole butts rather than already pulled. By not opening that lid on the pan, I'm not releasing any moisture prior to pulling and serving. Typically, this method gives me enough moisture that I don't have to add water, Sprite, or apple juice.

If you can't fit a steam pan in your smoker, use an electric roaster, but watch the moisture. Those roasters can dry product out pretty quickly. Keep adding apple juice and they can reheat 20 pounds of product or more in a flash.
