    I can't tell you how many lbs of pulled pork I have frozen using all these steps. Has to be between 1,000 and 2,000 lbs. So gross.

    Well, I'm just waiting about 18 hours so I won't be freezing my meat. Thanks for the tips!

    When doing it, I was sealing between 75-150 lbs cooked at a time. I was sealing in 1, 2, and 5 lb quantities.

    Between overheating, cleaning the sealing area, the grease and the smell....I lost my joy/interest for it.

    There are times when I smell PP and I get sick.

    an amount equal to twelve dozen; 144.


    144 stone = 2,016 lbs. So, "gross" describes how much pulled pork Tick has frozen.

    You turned your hobby into a job. Big mistake.

    Agreed. Which is why we got out when we did. When it felt like a chore, it was time to go.

    Cooked 4 butts, vacuum sealed and refrigerated for the next day. Then reheated in a pot of hot water. Worked great for pulled pork the first night and pork tacos the next day with the bags I hadnt yet opened. Thanks all.
