    So I smoked two butts Sunday, Sorry no QVIEW, and brought them in for the office pot luck today. I pulled it on Sunday and it is now in the crock pot on high, with some low sodium chicken stock and a little finishing sauce. They went on at 8:15am do you guys/gals think it should be done by noon?

    yes it should be done, after all , you are just heating it up.
    I did exactly the same thing last week and it didnt take long to heat it up.
    you may need to turn it down in an hour or 2

    I agree, it should be done in plenty of time. I did a reheat of 5 butts, pulled, just two weeks ago and it heated up faster than I would have thought.

    Thanks guys! I can smell it already, just a little nervous, I will keep an eye on it and turn it down around 11 or so.
    I cant wait!

    Yep, as above. I did pulled pork and sliced brisket for work about 6 or 8 weeks ago. I had digi therms in both while reheating, with my thermostats on med and it reheated quite a bit faster than I expected.

    Go from high down to med/low after an hour or so...if it's showing some steaming, it's heating well.

    Have fun...folks will appreciate your food more than you expect. If it's your first time cooking for them, be ready for some "wows"...they did for me.[​IMG]

    You should have plenty of time to re-heat cause it does heat alot faster then you think. Just for giggles you can also re-heat other smoked products like whole chickens and fattie with a pasta pot or a steamer. I have done that serial times to great results
     
  7. crock pot is great. We put it in the oven with a little apple juice covered with aluminum foil and heated low 250-ish.

    Uncover it for the last 15 minutes to get it crunchy on the top (like the burnt ends).

    love it! Enjoy!

    If your work is anything like mine, you'll have people coming round all morning who never come around telling you they can smell it through the whole building. They always seem to know exactly where it's coming from and their eyes get real big when they walk in to see two crock pots and a roaster oven loaded with Dutch's Baked Beans, pulled pork and brisket.

    The pork was a big hit! Everybody really enjoyed it, there was some left which surprised me, but I bet by the end of the day it will be gone. Thanks for your help everybody.

    sorry i missed this, but the way i reheated it for our office potluck was to simply toss it into the crock pot. there was plenty of moisture for the mat and it did not dry out, but i will caveat this by saying that i had also added the de-fatted pan drippings.

    having said that, i am pretty sure that it still would have been quite moist, as the fully-reaheated pork seemed awfully wet.
