Reheating Pulled Pork

Do you guys thaw your pulled pork then drop it in some boiling water to reheat? Or can I throw it in frozen? Thanks.

If you put it in frozen you will cook the outside meat alot trying to thaw, then heat the middle. My goal is to add as little heat as possible, since the meat is ideally cooked when I put it in the freezer. So, I thaw and bring to near room temp then put in simmering (a few small bubbles), not boiling, water and I massage the bag a few times to speed up the reheating process. The bag seams are delicate (even Foodsaver) so I take car when massaging. I think it's as close to right off the smoker as it can be this way.

If you want to thaw it first, and this works with any frozen meat, put it in a bowl of cold water and trickle cold water into the bowl. Something with the thermodynamics of cold water makes it thaw faster.
