Newbie with a good butt

Just finished pulling the pork off my smoked butt.  All I can say is OUTSTANDING.  Now the questions is what is the best way to reheat it for tomorrow lunch?  Crock pot?  Microwave?  Oven?

 

Thanks in advance

  • Nice title- great thing about Pulled Pork is that it warms up nicely. I even use the dreaded microwave when in a hurry. You can do stove top, oven, nuker, crock pot, low and slow or fast. It's very forgiving so try a few different ways and see which one you like.

    I warmed my butt in the microwave today.  Be sure to cover it so it won't get too dry.

    I use a slow cooker or stove top, and add a little coke or dr pepper. Reheats very easily.

    If you have a vacuum sealer, you can vacuum seal it and reheat it in hot/boiling water in the bag... a zip lock will work in a pinch... but I've used the microwave even for PP...

    yep. That's a great way to do it. We have a sous vide cooker and we use it to warm stuff all the time. It's the most gentle way to do it.

    I've never cooked any sous vide...  can you do it without a cooker or is it too much trouble to maintain 180ish water...

    it would be tough without a very precise stove. It's awesome and I cook at like 125-130. It's cool too- works well with the egg (sear after sous vide)

    I even tried my rice cooker, and it worked fine!  It came with a raised, perforated metal plate that keeps the food (they suggest vegetables) over the water in the bottom.  It does soften up any bark, but on pork butt I don't mind so much.

    I've heard that works well as a sous vide, Botch. It's a fun way to cook too.

    I warm it in the microwave with a damp paper towel over it.
  • Thanks for all the help.   Used the vacuum sealer and heated it in hot water.  Turned out great.
