Abused butts

I have two butts I didn't allow ample time to cook and now have a processing issue on my hands.

They're in my fridge and have been since sometime in the middle of the night.  I've been unkind to them.
- started cook late
- cut some chunks off so I could make bbq pizza
- wrapped and coolered to rest for 30 minutes then in the oven at 225 for 90 min, rested in the oven after that for 45+ min
- got home and there was still a good bit of connective tissue, nothing pulled apart yet, bones wouldnt pull out
- I set a timer for 2 hours and let them run at 225 again, woke up somewhere in the middle of the night and chucked em straight into the fridge.

TLDR - three heat cycles (5hr @270 + 1 hr @350; rest 30; 90 min @225; rest 45+; 2hr @ 225; fridge)

Anyone have great ideas about what to do now?  I've always pulled when hot, then frozen in desired serving sizes.  Best I can imagine is to chunk it into roughly 1# hunks and then freeze those directly.  Warm up individually and pull before eating.
