I think you've found most of your problem for pull -- I wouldn't want to attack a 160 degree butt with two forks either!! When the butt's properly cooked and rested, the main meat chunks will just fall off, the fatty areas will be either dissolved into yumminess or will just sheet off easily by hand. Then it doesn't take much finger pressure to break the meat into bite-sized chunks.

Another vote here for nitrile disposable gloves over cotton ones that are damn near disposable (like these ). You're insulated, but you can feel what you're doing.
Don't practice until you get it right; practice until you can't get it wrong.
Don't overthink or undercook.
