    AUParker,
    how many pounds do you have left and do you want to reheat it all tonight and consume it all tonight as well? And it is in a pulled state -right?

    AUParker,
    this will sound strange but it works and is an old trick. Take at least 2.5 pounds of it or as much as you'll eat tonight and place it in a crock pot and add 1 12oz can of CocaCola - not pepsi and not diet Coke nor any flavored Coke either - just the real stuff. Mix it in and occassionally as you warm the meat back up. There will be no after taste, no sweetness - just great pulled pork. If you have any picky eaters it's best not to share this secret! But trust me it works!

  • RRP,
    Thanks for the tip on reheating pulled pork as I will be doing it soon.
    Can you tell me if it would be ok to put some coke in the foil with baby backs during the foil stage of a 3-1-1 cook.

    Jupiter Jim,
    I wouldn't do it and don't see the need. The Coke masks that horrible taste (IMO anyway) when cold meats are warmed over such as pulled pork and pulled beef.
