Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I’ve done it now

Well, I have bragged one time to many about how great pulled pork is when cooked on the Egg. Now my boss wants me to cook a couple for our next meeting. No problem, except, I live 9 hours away from the meeting location.[p]What is the best way to get the pork there and still have it tasting Great? I was thinking about cooking it a day or two before, pulling it, then sealing it in a Food Saver bag and freezing. Let thaw on the way and heat the bag in boiling water. Would this work or do you have suggestion on the best way to get it there.[p]Thank you so much.[p]Butch M

  • Butch M,
    On super bowl sunday I wrapped the butts in foil and towells and put them in a cooler for 5 hours....[p]they were still pretty hot to the touch...[p]Alternatively, just put them in good ziploc bags that are microwaveable and store the pulled pork on ice until you get there...pour in a little vinegar sauce and zap it in the Microwave for a minute, shake the bag, repeat 2 or 3 times to warm up....[p]Enjoy!

    The foodsaver method will work just fine and is probably your best bet. You could probably keep them warm with the cooler method, but 9 hours is pushing it and I wouldn't risk it. Foodsavered BBQ tastes pretty much like it came right off the Egg and you will impress your boss![p]Jim
  • Butch M, Hey, you can never brag enough about your own pulled pork... LOL Joe

    Butch M,
    Bagged and nuked or boiled sounds safest. If you REALLY want to score big points, get a bottle or two of Happy Pappy sauce from Ken Stone (BlueSmoke) to finish it off. Wonderful flavor.
    Cheers,
    Gretl

  • Butch M,[p]I have to confirm your foodsaver option. I have friends in Houston that I have overnighted pulled pork to a couple of times. -I live in North Carolina. I vaccuum seal it (foodsaver), then pack it in ice-gel packs and ship it. You really don't even have to freeze it unless your cook day is more than 48hrs prior. -That could make your prep a little smoother when you get there.[p]Ken
