    I have frozen "PULLED" pork in plastic bags before and defrosted and re-heated in boiling water then open the bags and served --  couldn't tell that it wasn't right off the grill..

    Only 6 months into Egging, but when I cook an extra butt we pull it, and put 6 oz servings into ziplocs and then put them all into a 1 gal Ziploc and freeze. 1 bag makes a good sandwich and we can grab multiple when making pulled pork nachos or pizza. A little apple juice and /or apple cider vinegar when reheated works great. Hope that helps.

    Food saver it into portions for sandwiches, tacos, etc. Pull out portion you want and sit in boiling water.

    I pull it.
    Measure into 1 pound portions (Four 3 oz sandwiches for the four of us)
    Vacuum seal it.

    When we want to eat it, simply drop a bag in the sous vide at about 135 degrees. Whenever we are ready to eat....pull bag out and heat to desired temp in microwave.

    I do not add bbq sauce to the bags before I seal and freeze them. I may want to use the pulled pork for something other then sandwiches and I want to be able to add the flavor I want at the time I use it. Nachos, pizza, flatbread, whatever.

    Nice pic and thanks for the suggestion.  I need to get a vacuum sealer for for cooks.  I will have to shop around and see what I can come up with.

    Not a year old yet. What happened to my egg? Green ceramic chipping off! I'm stunned. Will performance be affected? I've never seen any pics of eggs doing this before. imageimage
