Divide it among several zip lock bags and reheat in simmering water.

SS,

Not knowing what you might have access to, I would put it in an aluminum pan (full size) add some rub and some apple juice, cover it with foil and place it in the oven or on the grill or smoker at approx. 275ļ and reheat for about an hour or so, or until warmed through. With 10lbs it may take longer than an hour but I would check it and see how it's doing and proceed accordingly.

Of course this depends on your time constraints and what you have access to, oven, grill, smoker, etc.

What Rag said.

So far I have used simmering water, covered pan in the oven and microwave. All worked but simmering water is the best.

I had smoked a big pork butt a week before we left on a family vacation and after pulling, split it up and froze it in zip lock bags. Once we were ready to head out my wife placed it in the freezer of our rig. For our third nights dinner we reheated in simmering water, placed the pulled pork on nice soft rolls that I had heated in a pan with real butter, added some bbq sauce and man were they great. We were happy as pigs in a blanket. Iím planning on doing this for every camping trip. Much better then using a microwave or pan.

Thanks
Chuck

Get as much air out of it as you can, of course, and try to keep the seal above water. They can leak, and it's kinda hard to repair the meat. (DAMHIK. :oops:)
