When I smoke pork butt for pulled pork to be served later, I always go ahead and pull it when it comes off the smoker (after a proper rest, of course). It's easier to pull then than later, and reheats much better pulled than whole. Save all the drippings to pour over the meat after you pull it, then store overnight. There's more than 1 good way to reheat pp...you can do it covered in an oven @ around 300*, heats up nicely in an hour or less; or you can put it in a crock pot...takes a little longer, but either of these work great and the pork comes out like you just took it off the smoker.
Good luck, and let us know how it turns out!
There's a local joint here that you can buy lb bags of pulled pork. They instruct you to place the bag in boiling water. It heats up nice that way - kinda like Sous Vide. I imagine you can vacuum pack and do the same thing in boilable bags.
Jpayer , hello. IMHO , boiling is quicker and less mess than other methods. I do , do the Crock and the Oven thingy , however the convience of the Freezer Bags are a big help .
Lots better than water and you can still sauve it if you want... not trying to burst a bubble , but... water won't up the flavor like this sauce. Just sayin'...
Have fun and as always . . .
