    Let's reheat some pulled pork!! Experiment time!

    I have read of many ways to reheat pulled pork, most are nuking or boiling in a bag. I have 3 pounds of refrigerated pork with no sauce and I want to test these methods for myself as I generally don't care for reheated.

    What do you want to see tested? Got a method different from above?

    _John_ put it on foil and spray just a little apple juice or cider on it then seal the foil and set oven temp 250-275. That works great for me.


      When I have reheated a large amount of pulled pork, I use freezer bags and place in water temped at 165. Heats for an hour.
      Turns out great

        Is this from refrigerated or frozen?

        Refrigerated as I did the cook the day before. I didn't want an ornery butt or two taking its time getting to 200+.

      I've added some sauce and a little cider vinegar and heated it slowly in a pan, much to my pleasure.


        My experience is the pulled pork is extremely forgiving. You could put it under your arm and it will reheat just fine. (I jest, I jest!) But microwave, hot water, oven, whatever; stir it around in a skillet; it always comes back pretty good.

          Except for the armpit stuff. LOL

        Maybe with a shower first and no deodorant? I've read someone mention mixing butter and apple-juice to reheat PP - I apologise to OP but my memory fails me.....


          I would suspect boil-in-a-bag or oven with butter/water would be best, but purely speculation. I use the very fancy high tech method I like to call- "microwave it for 45 seconds." It does the job.

            Huskee I used to nuke it but it tends to be dry so now I spray it with a little apple juice/cider whichever I have on hand then wrap it in foil and put in oven.

            I nuke with some of the saved juices from the foil wrap. Works like a charm and there are never any complaints.

          _John_ how did the test go?


            DWCowles still a couple methods to try tomorrow, but boiling a vac bag is the winner so far.


              When I freeze pulled pork I flatten out the meat in the bag and freeze it laying flat. If I reheat in the microwave it seems to take much less time as it's fairly uniform in thickness. Also, I can break off a chunk of the frozen meat and reseal the bag, though I usually eat it all :-)


                We had to reheat a few lbs. the other day. Nuke covered in a glass bowl with a touch of water. Turned out fine.


                  Boil in bag is how restaurants do it.
