Need advice on storing BBQ Pork

OK -- I've done the top half of a Boston Butt (pictures of my first low and slow effort coming!)

So now I will have about 4 pounds of BBQ pork that I have to store for future consumption.

I would like some suggestions for storing (freezing, I guess) and then resurrecting for another meal. What if any liquid should I use to "freshen it up" the next time?

By the way, cook is going great -- Stoker functioning perfectly -- can't wait to see the outcome -- like I said pictures coming.

I feel so proud I didn't sneak even one peek

    after I pull it I package it in Food Saver pint size bags. For us a solid packed 1/2 cup of pp per sandwich is just perfect. Reheating can either be done in that bag, or opened and mixed with a variety of things! As the saying goes that's a whole 'nother story!

    I use a Food Saver to package (1 lb. each bag) and freeze. I put the juices from the foil into the package before I seal it up. Then all you need to do when you want to eat it is pull out of the freezer and boil the whole package 15-20 minutes. It tastes just like when you took it off the Egg!

    We always put the pork in the food saver with a little juice from the cook. We seal enough for a meal for 2 people. Reheat in the microwave or boiling water. We typically use the leftover meat in things like enchiladas or ABT'S.

    I'll fourth the Food Saver recommendation. Boil in bag to reheat (I don't own a microwave) and its just as good as the day it was frozen.

    I na pinch, you can use regular ziplock bags, a straw, and your lungs to do an adhoc vaccuum pack - I did that a lot before I got the Food Saver machine.

    Vac seal and freeze. Since my pulled pork invariably becomes Lexington Style BBQ - I just re moisten with Lexington Style 'dip'.
