    I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday.

    I wrapped in foil at 165 and pulled from the heat to rest this at 202 degrees. 

    After resting in towels and in a cooler until the temps dropped to 140, I took the meat out of the cooler and towels,  I placed the foil wrapped hunk of goodness in the refrigerator about 2:30 am this morning.

    The plan is pull the pork for sandwiches latter today, which leads to the question of the morning what is better...

    Normally what I would have done is pulled it lastnight then just reheat the already pulled pork. But thats just me.

    I pulled 2 last night let them rest for an hour or two put on the hot gloves and ripped it up.

    Last two i did i refridgerated over night ,Reheated enough to melt the fat on the outside and pulled.  The ones yesterday were alot easier to pull.

    BINGO, we have a winner, man that was a great sandwich. I even a got a thumbs up from my wife.  Red Zone and pulled pork, a wonderful way to spend a Sunday with no Bear's game.

     like your video and I'm also gonna agree with Bob (eman) and I leave the butt/shoulder  in the cooler for 3-4 hours if possible and then I pull it. I did spend the 3.00 bucks for some pvc coated gloves so I can pull the pork when it's still quite hot.
