Cooking a large amount of pork on the grill or smoker often results in leftovers. When you have leftover barbecue pork, it needs to be reheated properly to prevent illness and to keep the meat flavorful and moist. Reheating the pork in the oven or microwave allows you to safely monitor the meat. Reheating the meat too long or applying too much heat can alter the texture and taste, which may ruin the pork.
Things You'll Need
- Aluminum foil
- Cooking sheet
- Meat thermometer
- Microwave-safe plate
- Wax paper
Pre-heat an oven to 325 degrees F.
Wrap the barbecue pork in aluminum foil to keep it from drying out completely.
Place the pork on a cooking sheet.
Heat the pork until it reaches a safe internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
Place the barbecue pork on a microwave-safe plate.
Cover the pork loosely with wax paper.
Heat the pork at the 30 percent power setting for 2 minutes. Check the meat temperature and continue reheating for 1 minute intervals until it reaches 165 degrees F.
