    We are throwing a party next weekend and serving pulled pork. My GOSM can only do 2 butts at a time. I am doing 2 today and 2 next friday for the party on saturday. My question is storage of the 2 being smoked today. We are going to freeze the meat and thaw prior to the party. Should I pull it the meat now when it is hot or freeze the butt unpulled and pull cold and the heat? I am going to use a finish sauce and save the fluids from when it is wrapped. I think i should pull it, add the juice and sauce then freeze. To reheat just thaw and put in a warmer. does that sound about right?

    You want to pull it today. I would seal in food saver bags then next weekend reheat by putting the foodsaver bags in boiling water. A crockpot would work too. Good luck and I cant wait to see pics of the event.

    X 2 pull it and freeze. When reheating give yourself some time to bring it up to 140 in a crock pot.
