Need help on reheating pork belly burnt ends.

For the UGA Auburn tailgate I am thinking about trying my hand at pork belly burnt ends. I will be in Athens tailgating so I was thinking of doing them Friday night, then reheating. What would be the best way to reheat them? I will have access to a hot plate, a grill or a crockpot. What do you guys think? I just want to amaze the tailgate so I want them to be the best possible.

  • You could donin crock pot, or in a zip lock or vac pack in warm water on hot plate.

    My chili did not suck. My wings either.

    SV works great with re heating pork. Burnt ends especially. 
    If you have a hot plate, if it is of decent capacity for a large container, use a food saver bag or any bag that will be waterproof and safe to 165F. 
    Works awesome. We have done it with wings and tenderloin too.

  • They’re so damn good you could just serve them cold on a toothpick and people would be going nuts!

    Whenever I have leftovers (rarely) I vac seal and freeze. When I get them out I throw the pack in boiling water for ~10 minutes (depends on size of pack). Works pretty well for me. I do the same with leftover pulled pork and I think it stays moister in the re-heat.

  • Pretty good advice, I am making some on Tuesday before Thanksgiving the going to 2 Turkey day dinners . Will most likely have to heat in aluminum pans in ovens. Thanks for the resource idea unoriginalusername

  • I just did last week with this recipe  Smoked then glazed Friday night.  Ziplock bag in fridge.  Next morning put in foil pan-but crock pot would’ve been fine.  Heated right up.  Everyone raved. Easy peasy

    I’m trying that recipe this weekend. Good to know a crockpot will reheat them, as I may make some for a work function over the holidays.

    Any reheating method will work.

    Agreed that any method will work. The last batch I made got reheated the first time in a covered dutch oven. The second time I just nuked the few that were left in the microwave. If I was tailgating I might put them in a covered foil pan on the grille, turning them occasionally. The skewer and grille suggestion above sounds like a good plan too.
