smoking a butt a 2nd time: dumb?

last weekend I made two butts for a party, only needed one. so I froze the other with the plan that I would sous vide it up to serving temp for another party tomorrow. but what if I let it thaw and then put it back on until it was at serving temp? would it be too smokey? would it be even better? should I stick with the sous vide to reheat?

    I've done it both ways , as long as it is clean smoke it should be fine...I only do it if I have my rig going then I will throw it on in aluminum pans covered , then uncovered for a glaze @ the end

    I'd wrap it in foil and reheat on the egg over low heat, then pull the foil down to expose the butt for maybe 25 minutes to get a little more.

    I'm thinking you already have all the flavor on it that you need. Any further cooking without being wrapped/sealed would just drive moisture out. Good luck whatever you choose! Chris

    You are going to have a hard time beating the overall quality of the final product that would come out of a SV reheat.
