1) Allow pork barbecue to thaw in the refrigerator overnight (about 12-14 hours). Or to prepare from frozen, follow the instructions and add about 15 minutes to the re-heat time.
2) Remove from plastic container and place in an oven-safe dish with a lid, or a casserole dish that you can cover with foil. *Adding extra sauce is not necessary. However, heating covered is necessary to keep cue moist.
3) Cook in a 300-degree pre-heated oven for 30-40 minutes until heated through and steaming.
4) To reheat on the grill: Place cue in a covered aluminum pan or other grill-safe container and reheat over medium-low heat (300-325) for 30-40 minutes or until the cue is hot and steaming. Enjoy!
Note: The more barbecue you re-heat, the longer it will take. We do not recommend microwaving slow-cooked cue.
Carolina Cole Slaw (cabbage not included): Place chopped cabbage into a non-reactive bowl. Add enough Caroline Cue Sauce to wet the chopped cabbage (about ½-cup to 1 cup of sauce per pound of chopped cabbage, as needed). Let sit for at least 30 minutes or overnight covered in the refrigerator. Stir before serving. Reserve extra sauce for adding to pork. Slaw will keep for up to 3 days, covered in the refrigerator.
Orders ship Monday through Thursday via FedEx 2-Day or faster. Orders placed by 6AM (ET) can ship that day.
If you plan to serve within 1-2 days of arrival, refrigerate your hot dogs and the chopped cabbage upon receipt. Otherwise, store in your freezer and keep frozen until the day you want to eat it.

The buns can be refrigerated or stored at room temperature for up to 5 days. Otherwise, store them in your freezer until 4 hours before you want to eat them.
Sauce should be refrigerated after opening!
Heating Instructions for Hot Dogs

To reheat in the microwave: Roll hot dogs in a paper towel and microwave for 25-30 seconds. Remove and let sit for 5 seconds.
