Smoking pork butt a week ahead of party

Discussion in 'Pork' started by coop9790, Aug 29, 2014.

  1. I was going to make my pulled pork a week in advance of the party I am having. Anybody else ever done this? If so how did you save it? I was figuring on freezing it in 1 gallon freezer bags? Any help would be appreciated.

    Sounds like a plan.  How do you intend to warm it?  I would place it in a crock pot with a bit of finishing sauce to reheat.  
  3. I use an electric smoker so I was going to just reheat in there. Not sure I can use the crock pot. I will have too much to reheat.

    Reheating it in the smoker is fine.  You will need to thaw it out the day before, put it in a foil pan and add finishing sauce.

    A few days frozen in a Ziplock should be short enough that there should be no worry on freezer burn.
