How to Freeze Pulled Pork (No Freezer Burn)

If you love to make homemade pulled pork, you’ll know that you often make a lot at once. Here’s how to freeze pulled pork so that it never goes to waste.

  • Total Time: 3 hours 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 4 pound pork shoulder, cooked and shredded


  1. Let the pulled pork cool down on your kitchen counter and fridge before you prepare it to be frozen. 
  2. Divide the pulled pork into 1-3 sections.
  3. Transfer the portions of pulled pork to resealable plastic bags. Press the bags to remove as much air as possible before sealing. You can also use a vacuum sealer if you have that.
  4. Label the bags with information like the date you’re freezing them, what you’re freezing, and the portion size, if you weighed it. 
  5. Place the bags in the freezer for long-term storage.


  1. Defrost the frozen pulled pork in the refrigerator overnight before re-heating and serving.
  2. You can freeze the pulled pork in smaller or larger servings depending on how much you will want to defrost at one time in the future.
