Pork Shoulder to be Served in 4 Days - To Shred it, and How Best to Reheat???

I am good on the prep, but should I (1) shred it or leave it whole, and (2) what is the best way to reheat it before serving?


Thanks, Eggheads...

    if its pulled pork you have several options - i would shred after a short rest double wrapped with hdaf in a cooler to redistribute the juices.

    vacuum pack with a little au jus and reheat in boiling water (can do this straight out of the freezer if you like)
    drop in a slow cooker with au jus - not enough au jus?  add some apple juice
    foil with au jus and put it back on the egg (or oven)
    in a cast iron pot on the egg (or oven)

    if you are planning on serving with a carolina sauce you could could use some of the sauce in lieu of apple juice

    good luck with it - pulled pork is real forgiving
