Whittling Chip is making pulled pork for my family
He is going to cook it all day on his New Braunfels smoker. He plans to smoke at a temp of 225 to 165 internal temp, then foil to rise to 200 and then wrap and place in a cooler wrapped in towels. It is an 8 lb shoulder butt and will take all day Friday. He'll be starting it around 8:00 a.m. and figures it will be coming off the smoker about 12-13 hours later.
The cooked butt then goes in the frig until Saturday. We are driving to my family's place (2 hrs) on Saturday and will reheat the pork in the oven for serving about 12-1 pm.
QUESTION: we have always pulled the pork as soon as it was done. Could we wait until we got to family house and reheated butt before pulling or is that too late? He wants them to see the "show" of pulling that tender juicy pork!
PS he loves this forum and my taste buds have benefited greatly from his experiments - yummy! Thank you all!
