Hello all,
I am having about 10 family members over for lunch in about one month. I am looking for suggestions on what I can smoke on saturday and reheat for lunch on sunday after church.
I was thinking maybe pulled pork but am open for suggestions as to what has worked and what reheating methods you have used. Thanks

I'm told pulled pork is an excellent dish to make ahead of time. In fact I am doing the same thing in May. My daugther makes her First Communion on the 8th and I won't have time to make food that day so I am taking off on the 7th and doing two pork roasts. Now that I think about it I may also do some smoked potatoes and use them for potato salad.

Will do. Funny the idea for the smoked potato salad came to me while I was typing my response.
Check the thread I started "Pork Shoulder for Pulled Pork". I started it to get some good advice for this same reason.

I concur, pulled pork is an excellent choice to prepare ahead of time. :wink:

Not sure yet, but I will probably use the oven since it will be more convienent that day.

A crock pot set on low works like a charm. Such a gentle heat soesn't force the moisture from the pork. Toss the meat in as you leave for the service and it should be hot enough by time to eat. This frees up the oven for beans etc.

Congrats on your childrens' milestone!

Thanks YB. I don't know why I didn't think of the crockpot, we only have three or four of them and it's usually my first choice to keep food warm for a party.

Sorry about that, I can't figure out why I don't log in when I log in sometimes.

Again, thanks YB.
