Howdy. Best bet on this deal is start cooking tomorrow..freeze and hold what you got. Night before throw them out to thaw and whack it up to suit. Pan it up with bit of liquid and a tinfoil top in the pit or oven. The liquid can be anything from water to Fergies reincarnation sauce. Forget the Texas Pete that nasty suff is made in NC or Ohioyo or somewhere. Why dont they take the blame for it? Sirachhi or Franks is much better.

Shrink wrap them and reheat in a pot of boiling water.

I've had success reheating in the oven with some apple juice in the bottom of a covered pan.

I have tried the boiling water reheat mainly on bagged up chili and stew. Found it hard to determine the temp of the contents in the bag. I would think it was hot and the outside of the bag felt hot and bust it open to find it was still cold..then sometimes the bag would bust etc. Was a pain in the buttocks sorta. I heat stuff up in pans where you can stick a gauge in it.

After they are sealed (I double seal them) flatten out the package, so it's the same thickness for the whole bag, then freeze. It'll freeze faster and also re-heat faster and more consistently.
