    What I would do is smoke them, rest them, then pull them on Saturday. Put it all in a big disposable aluminum roasting pan, foil the top tight and into the fridge. Then I would make up some of this   then Sunday I would pull the foil off the top carefully and apply the finishing sauce put the tun foil back on and stick in in the oven at about 250-300 degrees  and warm it back up.

    How much you figuring on making? 1- 6oz Sammie per person is 15lb Finished Pulled Pork...Divided by a 60% Yield = 25lbs Raw Butt...should be purchased...

    15lb is a lot of meat to heat in 1 pan...I would split it up...JJ

    That's the way I do put some liquid in the pan and heat at 250 in the oven

    Well the pulled pork was a hit ! they ate down, all that were left was scraps. Every one was full and fed. perfect.

    I did use the sauce pinnywoods mentioned. All and all great day with family. I heated the pan on a small BBQ grill that worked great.
