I had a gentleman smoke some pork butts for me for a get together tomorrow, and I picked them up this afternoon. They were in a covered foil container and when I got home and opened it, they had not been pulled. Help !! I have always pulled butts after they cooled just enough to handle and these are stone cold, my question is do I put them in the oven to warm up before I  pull them or what do guys suggest ? Any help would be appreciated greatly !!

I would think you could pull it while it is cold.  There are other more experienced people here that will hopefully weigh in though.

I would go ahead and re-heat and then pull. You are going to re-heat it anyways. I'm sure it will be fine, just add a finishing sauce to make sure it doesn't get too dry. Relax, I'm sure it will taste great.

I never let one get cold, but I would say if you can pull it----Pull it.

I agree, try to pull it and if it works go for it.  If not then warm it up and pull

Either way your gonna have to warm it up to eat. So whatever works, warm & pull or pull & warm. Personally, I would try pulling it cold first.
