I am getting married next weekend and for some reason thought it would be a good idea if I smoked the meat for the reception. Now as it gets closer to crunch time I am kind of worried about the reheating process. I have searched on the forum and found a few ideas but I still need some help!!! I cannot mess this one up!!! I need to have enough pp for 150 +/- people so i'm thinking I will start with around 75 pounds of pork. The wedding is Saturday but I will have to cook on Thursday so my main concern is how to package and reheat it.
From what I have read I think my best option is to cook, rest, pull, and vacuum seal. I will not be the one who reheats it and I need it to be fool proof. I think packing it this way and boiling should be the easiest. One question I have is can I vacuum seal it directly after pulling it or so does it need to cool. Should I put a small amount of apple juice and/or rub in with it before sealing? If it is packed 5 pounds at a time how long will it take to warm-up?
Any help answering these questions will be greatly appreciated and if there is a better option for storing and reheating I am definately willing to alter my plans.
