It is a paint stirrer you hook to your drill. Does an awesome job do shredding pork. It only takes about 10 seconds to shred it.

Cool shredder but I think you will find your shredded pork will dry out real fast.

I like "pulled pork" over "shredded pork" myself.

I'm sure that makes it quick, but honestly, I can turn 2 properly cooked pork butts into "pulled pork" in about 1 minute with just gloved hands. I've never seen the need for one of those.


I pretty much do it like Chris does it here, only I don't usually do the scimitar (but I HAVE):

agreed

I think its chopped up to fine for my tastes. Looks like it was done in a food processor like my ham salad sandwich spread

Wow, that video is amazing.

Jhutch 05-09-2013 09:19 AM

I would agree. I like my pork more pulled than shredded, but with 16 to do an not a lot of time to do them the shredder saves me time. It's not as shredded as it looks in the photo either.

Lake Dogs 05-09-2013 09:39 AM

Yeah, it looks shredded to the point of pulverized... I mean, if you're serving pre-sauced sammies, it works ok, but I like to serve pulled pork separately where folks can either make a sandwich or just eat it by itself, so my pulled pork more closely resembles chunks. They hold moisture (and flavor) better, too. I understand the time thing; I rarely ever do less than 6 butts, usually in that 10 to 14 range. We just have a "pork pullin' party" with about 4 of us, usually takes about 30 minutes, sometimes a little more. I dont go nearly as fast as Chris in the video above, because I/we take a LOT of care to not mix in the remaining fat and tendons.

Over the years I've had to convince people to help me and participate in the pork pullin' party. Now that most of them have done it and tasted the freshly pulled pork and understand that they get to eat as they go, I actually have to beat them off, there are lines for those coveted worker spots. Even my daughter who claims to be largely a vegetarian will occasionally come graze a piece or two as it's being pulled...

Bob in St. Louis 05-09-2013 10:35 AM

Yea, nothing worse than biting into a big slimey ball-o-fat.
I use my gloved hands so I can pull it apart and pick out the pieces I wouldn't want to eat. Probably takes me 5-8 minutes per butt.
I envy the speed Chris is doing it, but you KNOW his patrons are eating hunks of "undesirables".

Looks like a great way to pull pork for sammys.

Bludawg 05-09-2013 12:44 PM

:confused:Help me to understand, your cooking 16 Butts 2 at a time but you don't have two- five min to pull the two you cooked:tsk:

J'ville Grill 05-09-2013 12:53 PM

Please don't do that to the other 14.
