Best way to freeze cooked butt

CoolBeesCoolBees Posts: 32
What is the best way to freeze and reheat smoked pork butt ? I've read most like to pull and vacuum pack while others claim doing it whole is better. Is there a consensus as to which method provides the closest to "right off the smoker" taste?

    You can reheat whole butt and then pull but I haven't seen any advantages. I pull and vacuum pack portions I want then reheat in boiling water. Very fast and easy and doesn't dry out meat like warming a whole butt in the oven can do.

    +2  Pulled some out this weekend also, quickly defrosted and added into a meatloaf mixture.
