Notes On Reheating Pulled Pork

Last night I needed a quick dinner to feed the family. Two boxes of Mac and Cheese and some frozen peas latter, it was a meal fit for a five year old. As I was rummaging through the freezer, I found a Ziploc bag of Pulled Pork that was left over from March. I pulled it out and tossed the still frozen block of meat in a small saucepan over medium heat. I sprinkled the meat with a NC vinegar based sauced as the meat thawed. When the meat was warmed, I just put it on the plate with some bottled Jamaican BBQ Sauce along with the kiddie food. Let me tell you, I ate well.[p]The moral of the story is that six months in the freezer did little to harm the great flavor of Pull Pork from the Egg.[p]Happy Smoking,

    RhumAndJerk,
    For that reason I did two 8lb'rs last weekend just to freeze for lunches. Vacuum pack works well for long term freezer storage, and in your case ziplock did its job well also.
    Good weekend to ya

    RhumAndJerk,[p]You bring up a great point with the vinegar sauce. When you slowly heat up pulled pork with a little vinegar, the warmed over flavor pretty much avoided. It works with just about any meat as well.[p]Ashley

    Nature Boy, A dozen from a 7 lb'r? Great, We took the same math class, 28 large sammiches from my 16 lbs.
    Good weekend to you also.

  • YB,
    I am glad that you liked the shrimp. I wish that I could take credit for the recipe but it came from a book.
    Did you bake them on the Egg?

    Painter,
    I made several different sizes, from a small sammich size, to enough for 3 sammiches. Very unscientific! Whatever the numbers, it comes up to less than a buck a sammich. Not bad.[p]Time to get my butt off this chair, and get out into the yard! We are having righteous weather. Hope you too.[p]NB

  • RhumAndJerk,
    Well it's nice to know that the leftovers keep for some time. I wouldn't know though as the maximum leftover storage time in my house is approximately 24 hours. If nobody eats it by then it goes straight into the Garbage Disposal (by the way, "Garbage Disposal" is what I call myself after 8:00 pm).

    RhumAndJerk,
    Look forward to seeing you and your pal(s) again. I could also be toting along a couple buddies, but waiting for spousal approval on the pre- or post-eggtoberfest backpacking trip in the Smokies. My buds probably won't come if I can't fit in some backpacking.

  • RhumAndJerk,
    A little late coming in, but I second the devotion...to re-heated PP! Got in late after registering Daughter #2 for the Cross Country team, and I grabbed the tupperware with a previous cook inside, and sprinkled some swiss cheese on top (!), and slathered it with a wicked combo of Maurice's plus some leftover "pork" BBQ sauce from W.Sonoma, which didn't turn out bad, on some big bad buns. Yeahh Baby!!! Hosed it all down with a totally fresh Dos Equis...it's all good, eh! Big Murth saying "Howdy to all y Salud"--have a great weekend!!
