Best way to reheat boston butt.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I'm from Simpsonville Kentucky. I like mostly smoking my meat and some grilling. I haven't done much of either for sometime to an ongoing illness. I have 2 questions I'd like to post. If I smoke a boston butt the day before I want to serve it, what is the best way to warm it back up the next day? Also I have a big green egg and a traeger smoker. I have to get rid of one of them. Could I get some suggestions? This is my first post. Thank you

Howdy, tater!

I've reheated pulled pork in a crock pot on low with good result. When I find butts on sale I usually buy 2 or 3 and smoke them together. They will lose between 40-50% of weight in the process and removing the fat globs when pulling. I then pack them a pound each in vacuum seal bags (that I get from Lisa). This seems to be a good size for a meal for the wife and I. I sometimes do a lunch for the guys a the garage that looks after my vehicle repairs. I always do the pp a day ahead and put it in a crock pot in the reefer until the morning of the feed. I turn it on low for 3+ hours then just unplug the pot and take it along with sides for the guys.

Crock Pot works great, for large amounts, add some Apple Juice or Finishing Sauce of choice and heat at 325 in a foil covered pan, 30-60 minutes depending on amount. Some vacpack in Boiling Bags and reheat in simmering water.

You can post what you want to sell HERE... or try the local Craigslist...JJ

We have had very good luck with rewarming in a steamer. The same on-counter device used for steaming vegetables. It does not add to the cooking time and provides a moist warm meat.

I do the vac bag In water, but have done it in a crock pot, and in a pan like JJ was talking about.

A lot of it will depend upon what you have available, just make sure you don't dry it out.

I reheat PP in vac bags in hot water and it works great. Hot but not boiling...
Lose the Egg and keep the Traeger.

I often smoke BB a day in advance, and re-heat next day in oven at 300 for about an hour, with butt wrapped in foil; always stays moist. If re-heating smaller portions, I use a saucepan on stove, with a small amount of water for steam, and some sauce.
