Freezing Pulled Pork

I hate to ask this, as I feel rather silly about it, but I really would like to know.
I cooked an absolutely wonderful pulled pork today,
and we ate some for dinner, but realistically, there is no way
we are going to be able to eat it all in the next few days...
It is sauced and I have put it in two plastic freezer containers, but
I am worried it will suffer in quality when it's thawed....
any comments?

I just KNEW I shouldn't have made this much meat
when 3 of my 4 grown sons didn't come home for the weekend.... ugh.

  1. Freezes fine. I don't do anything special when it's thawing. It comes out fine.

      I agree with jeanmarieok. I've done this a number of times.

    2. OH yes you should have made that much meat! I cook as much pork shoulder at a time as I can get my hands on, specifically so that I can pull it and freeze it in meal size portions. It's the best thing in the world to have on hand for quick meals because it's versatile and thaws quickly. I leave mine plain to keep my options open.

        1. I put mine in ziploc bags and squeeze out the extra air. Freezes fine and the thawed pork tastes just wonderful!

          1. thanks for the replies everyone !!!!
            Now I feel better about this ~ my sons do love them some pulled pork ! :-D
