I prefer to reheat leftover pulled pork on the stovetop, but you may also microwave if you prefer.

I do not recommend omitting any of the spices noted in the pulled pork dry rub recipe, however, if you are in a pinch some tasty substitutions are:
- Hungarian Paprika: you won’t achieve quite the same level of smoky flavor, however it still tastes absolutely delicious.
- Ground Ginger: works in a pinch as a substitute for white pepper.
- Nutmeg: If you do not have ground nutmeg available, all spice works as a great 1:1 substitute.
- Sea Salt: regular table or kosher salt will work just fine if you do not have sea salt on hand.
