Pulling pork cold?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, I tackled 40lbs of boston butt all day yesterday (not literally) :). Hit the stall that went on forever, not to mention the snow storm with high winds that hit, so last night, I brought them inside and put them in the oven at 250 for the last 2 hours. Got them up to 204 and pulled them out. I let them rest for 1/2 hour, then got them into the fridge whole as I was wiped out and needed some sleep.

My question is, can they be shredded / pulled cold? Or, should I warm them up some to do this? They tasted fantastic (made a sammie last night). I need to remove the bones, shred, and bag them up for a party and just wasn't sure how to tackle them.

It has happened to me.


I pull while still warm.  Very difficult later.


If cold, you will probably end up either chopping or struggling and cussin.


Good luck and good smoking.
