It keeps getting better

Just pulled off my third Butt effort---it is even better than the rest. I do have a question: My wife, 3y old daughter and I can put a dent in the meat but there is a lot to spare---can I freeze it for long storage, and if so how do I reheat it to not dry the moist masterpiece?
Also, can anyone fork shred their Butt without eating so much that lunch sandwiches are no longer needed...
Wrapped a bunch of meat in foil then newspaper and Tuperware to take with me out on the boat---anyone hungry in Pensacola Bay around Perdido Pass give me a shout!!

    Schneid, we frequently make a few butts for the sole reason of freezing - we divide the pulled result into plastic bags each holding the estimated amount of a future meal. [p]T reheat, we merely place the plastic bag (unsealed) in a microwave at about 6 minutes and 30% power. Always turns out great - I think JJ first suggested the microwave. I also know that others use hot/boiling water - never tried it, the microwave this has always worked grreat for us.[p]Have a great day! :~}

    Schneid,[p]I put mine in bags that I seal with the FoodSaver and they keep in the freezer for as long as I've ever been able to stand seeing it in there. I just moisten it a bit with some vinegar sauce and seal it up. [p]If you don't have a FoodSavor get one. Sam's has them pretty cheap and I got mine on eBay for $50 new. I have a compact II. I hear some people swear by the high end models but mine has worked great for several years.[p]Mark

    I'm so lazy I even add a smigeon of sauce and a jolt of apple juice before I seal the bag.

    Gfw,[p]The microwave is very useful in reheating meat, but the key is lowering the power like you suggest. It you heat it on high, you will certainly get that "warmed over flavor". The only other tip I would offer is that a little vinegar sauce on the meat before it is frozen will help avoid that "warmed over flavor" as well. [p]Zip
