Default To Pull or Not to Pull?

Hey everyone simple question here. I'm smoking some butts and ribs for a gathering. I have to smoke them the day before though. What is the best way to reheat butts... Pull it right out the smoker or wait and pull it the next day after warming them?

**Bonus** Are reheated ribs any count? If so, how to reheat?

Thanks for all the info!

I would pull the pork the next day

heat it in a pan covered with a little water in it about 275 until the bone wiggles and its probe tender. pull as usual

I almost always do it this way

I have done both ways;

1) Leaving the butt whole, reheat in a foil pan the next day and pull.

2) Pulling after the rest and gently heating the next day.

I find that even holding overnight, or a few days I prefer to reheat as follows...

When the bone wiggles, rest the pork butts for a few hours and pull them in large pieces, remove the fat and other undesirables, put the meat (5 lbs) in a vac-seal bag, add the defatted juices from the pan and seal. When ready to heat drop the vac-seal bag(s) into a pan of boiling water and set to simmer for 15 minutes and serve with sauce on the side.
