Pull the butts and vac seal. Reheat in a pan of hot water.

Same for the ribs. You can cut into individual bones, several bones or leave whole (if your reheat pot is big enough).

Good luck.

You can boil the bags and then just put them down into a cooler or in a cambro to keep warm. Dont open until you are ready to add more meat.

I also double seal the bags when sealing them.

I wouldn't trust the ziplocks in boiling water.
In fact I don't even boil my vacc bags...hot water
is all you need, simmering will do the job and
you run less of a risk of a seal breaking.
I found that out the hard way...sorry Nick!!

Hokey Smokes Jim. You sure nailed that one. Nouthing like pulled pork soup. Been there myself! Was not pretty at all.

Thanks again for your help.
A week in the fridge is okay. Smoked meats last longer than other meats. You get much further out, then freeze them.
