    I'll be taking a trip soon. While the place is a Cathedral Of 'Cue (western NC) and I'll be sampling the local fare, I want some of my own 'cue, too. And the wife will kill me if I try to bring the GOSM in the family truckster. But imagine the cool smell we'd have on the trip. Mmmmmmm.

    Anywy, the question is: Has anyone ever tried freezing pulled pork for later and, if so, how did it go? I assume the best wat to freeze is without sauce.

    Take your RIG. Come on.

    Freezing PP does great. Add any finishing sauce after you re-heat with apple juice.

    Search for 're-heat pulled pork' and you will get lots of info.

    I actually like pulled pork better after freezing I think. Smoke it and pull it then vacuum seal it and add the juice or sauce when you go to reheat it

    If freeze in vacume bags, you can reheat them in boiling water. Keeps the moisture and locks in flavor.

    Do it all the time. Just put in vac bags an then freeze. When yall need some a large pan put onta boil, after it's boilin, turn down a bit, add the bags so they ain't touchin bottom an warm to over 140°. Add a bit a finishin sauce an ya got fine eatin.

    I have a big 'ol bag full of pp I am getting ready to vacuum seal and freeze right now.
    No worries, it will reheat just as good as the day you made it if not better.
