Freeze it in one-sandwich increments for a quick lunch! Otherwise, stuff it into enchiladas or tacos.

Freeze in convenient size package. Mix 1/3 pork to 2/3 ground beef for your next hamburgers or meat loaf.

It will freeze nicely. Divide into single serving packages and pull out when you want a nice quick meal.

Use it in soft tortillas brushed with sesame seed oil, with hoisin sauce and chopped green onion.
And maybe some cabbage, dressed with rice vinegar and olive oil.

Ha! There's no such thing as "too much" pulled pork!

My favorite not-exactly-traditional use is a simple burrito with an ancho chile sauce (or salsa picante), brown rice, black beans, guacamole and sour cream. Bonus: It's an excellent excuse to learn to make traditional flour tortillas with lard.

Pulled pork freezes well by the way.

Ooh! You could do a variation of the Momofuku steamed pork buns. If there's an Asian market near you, you can buy the steamed buns already made. No need to add the hoisin since the bbq sauce but maybe add some type of cabbage or pickle for the texture crumch.

You can use it on pizza, a bbq spaghetti, a variation of nachos, or top baked potatoes.

Hash is my favorite use. Pulled pork sandwich. It it freezes well.
