What to Serve with BBQ Pulled Pork?

When I am making BBQ Pulled Pork, I like to change what I serve with it. Sometimes I like to serve it with a simple side salad and other times I might make it into a sandwich. I also like to serve:

How Long Does BBQ Pulled Pork Last?

Since you are making this sauce from scratch, it doesn’t have preservatives. This BBQ Pulled Pork recipe will last for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Make sure it is in an airtight container. You can also freeze it.

How to Reheat BBQ Pulled Pork?

Pulled pork can be reheated in the microwave, a pot on the stove or a baking dish in the oven. Make sure the pork has been reheated thoroughly when you are ready to reheat it. If we are eating all of the pulled pork leftovers, I will heat it in the oven or on the stovetop. If I am only heating enough for one, I will heat it in the microwave or on the stove.
