    I like to warm up a pot full of bbq sauce and Apple cider vinegar to a strong simmer, then gold in the thawed pork. Seems to be the best way to heat without drying. If you vacuum sealed the pork before freezing you can also bring it to temp sealed in the bag immersed in hot water. 

    Its never quite as good as fresh, but that doesn't mean its not still good...

    Finally back in the Badger State!

    Following a friend's advice, froze the butt whole after cooking, wrapped in saran/foil to retain moisture in the freezer.  For reheating, let it thaw in fridge for a couple of days, then unwrap, break into large chunks, place in foil pan with a small amount (cup or two) of 50/50 mixture of apple juice/apple cider vinegar. Cover with alum foil, heat for 1-2 hrs at 250F.  It is as good, if not better than right off the Egg!
