Pulled pork makes delicious leftovers, or if you're expecting a crowd, you can cook it ahead of time and reheat it. To prevent the meat from drying out, keep it covered and don't overcook it. Then, apply a mopping sauce, made from diluted barbecue sauce, to add flavor and moisture.
Just a Bit
To warm up a few servings of pulled pork, toss the pork in a microwave-safe bowl. Add a bit of mopping sauce or broth if the pork seems dry, and cover the dish with a plate or lid. Microwave the pork for one to two minutes, or until it's hot and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Feed the Crowd
If you've got a crowd to feed, pile the pulled pork into a deep baking tray or a disposable aluminum pan. Add some mopping sauce or broth and cover the pan with aluminum foil. Bake in an oven set to 250 F for 30 minutes, or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 165 F. Remove the foil and stir the pork occasionally so it heats evenly. If you use an aluminum pan, you can serve the pork from a steam table so it stays hot. Refrigerate any leftovers within two hours.
