Default How would you reheat your pulled pork?

Some friends want me to make pulled pork for their sons graduation.The party is on Thursday, and I will have to smoke the meat the weekend before. How would you guys go about reheating the meat for the party so it's still tender and juicy? I was thinking of putting it in a roaster with a little water and chicken broth. Is this a good idea or a bad one?
Thanks,

I would pull it first. Seal it up as well as you can and freeze it. It shouldn't sit in the frige. For 4 days, it may start to get a little funky. After you defrost it place in a well sealed disposable chafing pan. Warm it up in the oven with maybe some apple juice. Then placee it over some sternos. That what I would do.

The idea here is to get the meat back to at least 165 degrees before serving. I've found it's best to do this slowly, so set the oven for 200 degrees or so and allow plenty of time. You can place a pan of water below the meat to assist in preventing the meat from drying out. The roaster will work great for transporting and holding the meat at the appropriate serving temp (at least 140). I might spray a little apple juice on the pork after moving it to the roaster if needed. Good luck with the party!

^^^^^^^^^^^^

thats it right there. Put it in a foodsuck or boiling bag and drop into boiling water. I have used oven roasting bags for large amounts.

reheating in the oven, even covered makes it dry out imo. Better off just dousing with apple juice and heating on the stove tossing it with tongs. Problem with that way is you have to play with it to stirr and it breaks apart. My absolute preferred method is dropping the bag in boiling water. it doesn't dry it out, doesnt break it apart, doesnt make it mush, and is real fast.

Pull it, food saver, and then to the freezer. When you are ready to serve, throw your frozen packaged delights into boiling water. When hot, put into warmed server with small amount of bbq sauce to keep the meat moist. Works great and still tender.

Something I do (Learned from the resturant) after I pull the pork, I season it and put some apple juice or other liquid with it then wrap it in in plastic wrap, then in foil. And when its time to to reheat I do it in a oven at around 225 or in my smoker at 225 till it hits 160. works great for me

While looking for some info on reheating frozen tamale's the other day I was reading a post by Divemaster about reheating pulled pork. He said that he does not shred the PP to fine because of it breaking up when reheated. I have found this problem as well so I'm considering it next time I freeze some. BTW Jeff if your reading this thanks for the reheating tips!

Pulled and vac bagged, reheating in hot water and I also prefer wrapping the whole thing in saran wrap while it's still warm, seals the air out same as vac packed, reheat how ever, taste just as good micro waved now.
The apple juice don't do it for me and I don't think your chicken broth will go good with pork, I know beef don't.

When reheating vac bagged pork in boiling water how do you judge the amount of time for reheating?

As they are warming up, you pull the bag and squeeze it in place to mix things around.

when they are to hot to hold, they are done. :)

A one gallon ziplock, packed nicely, from semi frozen/very cold, takes about 10-15 minutes.
