In my refrigerator is a big plate full of delicious, BBQ chopped pork that I would like to eat for lunch. I would, of course, like to eat it hot, but am not sure about the best way to reheat it. My initial instinct is the microwave, but I've had mixed results with microwaving meat. The oven is out as I suspect it would dry out the meat. Placing it in a steamer seems like it might work, but I can also imagine a soggy BBQ disaster. What says the hive?

I justr toss it in a skillet and bring the heat up slow then add a little more sauce

Wrap in foil, reheat in oven.

Fry it up in a pan. Add a little more sauce if its dry. I will be doing just that in a few minutes.

Microwave works just fine for shredded pork. I've never tried chopped though.

Aha! I hadn't even thought about the ol' cast iron skillet. This is my favorite so far. Thanks!

Do you have any bread? You may not believe it, but it works just like buns.

Yeah, but it's just not the same as a nice bun.

ETA: Sort of like a hamburger on Sunbeam.

I'd reheat it in a skillet. Maybe add just a little water, and keep stirring it. It should be hot pretty quickly.
ETA: And you NEED to go get buns and slaw!

Fire it's the only way

I put it in a Tupperware container with the lid slightly on and microwave it. The lid keeps the water from leaving the meat.

Boil it!

You betcha'!

I put the stuff in a tupperware container, add a little water (and I mean just a little), close it up tight and microwave for 2 -3 minutes. Comes out tasty everytime.

This. I vacuum seal pulled pork in 1lb portions shortly after pulling, then cool and freeze. When I want to eat, I place a bag in a pot of boiling water for 20-25 minutes, it comes out steaming hot and moist, almost as good as when it was pulled.

If the meat has been in the fridge uncovered, you may have dried it out. Place in freezer ziplock, add sauce of your choice, seal and then boil.

I already used the skillet method, which worked like a champ. BBQ tasted just like it did when it was fresh (lunch yesterday).

The BBQ & sauce in a sealed freezer bag is how I will store and reheat BBQ and similar foods from now on––that's an awesome idea. Thanks!

...which, if you're in the mood for a hamburger, is not the same as a hamburger. Delicious, yes, but not the same.
