Was curious on how to re-heat butt from an overnight cook.......Should I pull it first or re-heat then pull...

    I'm in the "pull it when ready to eat" after the cook but if that's a few days down the road, then pull when it comes off the BGE.  Seal and reheat when ready to eat-some use fancy sous-vide(sp?)equipment, you can reheat zip-loc bags in hot water, toss the pork in a crock pot with sauce, put in a shallow pan with sauce in a low temp oven.  Bottom-line pull when cooked than reheat otherwise you will have to reheat the whole butt again and it will lose most of its moisture.  But just an opinion and we all know what those are worth.
