Reheating on the smoker - Pork & Chicken NEED ADVISE

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by rmenasco, Aug 22, 2014.

  1. I just finished up cooking 8 pork butts (60lbs) and 16 chickens. Not sure of the weight in pounds...  I am planning on re-heating in my smoker for a large party tomorrow. How long do you think it'll take? 

    I have the pork in 3 roaster pans and the chicken in two roaster pans. 

    3 hours @ 225?

    Be careful it doesn't dry out., wrap in foil with a bit of Apple juice or a liquid and be sure to use the therm. , go to 165*F to serve , IMHO.

    Not to contradict , but I would cook to 165 initially , but when reheating I would stay at 135-140 to avoid drying out. I don't mean to nitpick , but I was taught that you don't want to reheat above ( or too close to) the temperature that meat was originally cooked to. To avoid drying out.
