Default ADVICE: Pulled Pork storage..smoking today but party next weekend

We are throwing a party next weekend and serving pulled pork. My GOSM can only do 2 butts at a time. I am doing 2 today and 2 next friday for the party on saturday. My question is storage of the 2 being smoked today. We are going to freeze the meat and thaw prior to the party. Should I pull it the meat now when it is hot or freeze the butt unpulled and pull cold and the heat? I am going to use a finish sauce and save the fluids from when it is wrapped. I think i should pull it, add the juice and sauce then freeze. To reheat just thaw and put in a warmer. does that sound about right?

Yep. Pull it now, add some sauce or juice, and freeze.

I would pull the pork first and then freeze. It takes to long to thaw a whole unpulled butt.
