Default frozen bbq???

I am going to cook bbq for a get together. I won't be able to cook it the day of so I was going to make it this weekend and then freeze it. The get together is the 23rd. Do yall think that it will be good to go or should I figure out something so its only refrigerated not frozen?

Depends on what your cooking, but generally I like the frozen, reheated slowly option. Sometimes, it's even better than fresh!

how do you usually reheat it? I was thinking put it in the fridge in the morning and then in boiling water when I got home. then putting it in a pre warmed cooler with some towels to take it to the store where we are having our meeting.

I often cook ahead and freeze... I have a number of people that order it that way...

I normaly under cook the meat slightly, cool quickly, cryo-suck, and then freeze... Here is a post on re-heating that may help... Re-Heating Packaged Meats

What kind of meat are you cooking? Certain cuts reheat better than others. Pulled pork is probably the easiest to make ahead and reheat, although I've had good luck with brisket, ribs and skinless chicken.
