Smoking today, Eating tomorrow

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I put in an 8lb pork butt last night and it should finish about 9 am this morning (it's about 185 internal right now).  But, we're not eating it until 6pm on Sunday.  You might ask why did I smoke it so early, simply, because of my work schedule this weekend, my only choice was to smoke it early, or not at all.  So when that pork is done later this morning, do I go ahead and pull/shred it now, then store in the refrigerator?  Or do I leave the butt intact, then reheat tomorrow, then pull and shred?  Also, what's the best way to reheat this tomorrow?  In the oven? Crockpot?  Do you think I'll need to add any additional moisture/juice tomorrow?  This is the first time I've had to smoke but not able to eat right away.  Thank you for any tips.

Save some of the drippings and pull it today while still warm.You can use the crock pot,or vac seal and put in hot water to warm.

Tropics, is there any benefit of vacuum sealing only for one day?  I mean, yes, it's easy to do, but if it's only going to be sealed for 30 hours, is it necessary?

No the bags are heavier,if you have freezer bags that you trust won't leak.They may work just don't get them that hot.IMHO
