Storing Pulled Pork

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
I have a reunion picnic on the 15 of July... Plan to smoke & pull 3 pork sholulder roasts. (each about 8 lb) I have to leave here and drive 350 miles on Wed., the 12th. I am thinking about cooking tonite and tomorrow, pulling on Mon. morning, freezing the bbQ, and reheating early Sat. am before the picnic. I have never had enuff left to freeze. Is this a good plan, or would I be better off to just keep it refrigerated 'til Sat.?? [p]Saint

    Saint,
    Either way will work. You can then just nuke the pork and no one will be abl;e to tell that you did not just finish pulling it. I freeze PP all the time.

    Saint,[p]I have a similar question. I am finishing my pork up today and I want to store it and re-heat a day later. Re-heat in the oven, etc?

    Saint, If your equipped to do so, vacuum seal and freeze. Then reheat in microwave or in a oven. Should be excellent.
    If no Foodsaver then zip bag and freeze..a few days won't make much difference.
    Cheers..C~W
    BTW..I have some pulled pork left for a couple of sandwiches all sealed and frozen for several weeks. Maybe a month..Taste fresh as yesterday when thawed...My lunch tonight..Thanks.

    char buddy,[p]I use the microwave. Reheat (low power) in a sealed ziplock bag. This is much quicker than an oven and works great.[p]Spin

  • Thanks for the good advice, folks. I think I will freeze and reheat-- that way, if there are left overs, they should be good into the week after the 15 picnic...[p]Saint
