I'm not a caterer or vendor but have pulled pork for a crowd in mass qty on a few occassions.. Pulling out the fat is less than ideal in high volume. Westex and I did about 20 of them wearing hi temp food grade neoprene gloves.. a big squeeze and then a bunch of little squeezes and pulls... Very quick.. Maybe 3-4 minutes per butt. You'll catch a few large pieces of fat by default.

Even better... When I assisted Chris Lilly at the Big Apple Block Party it was somewhat similar.. A big crush with our hands but then a different approach.. A samurai knife is used to chops the large chunks. Here's his brother Owen doing the same technique .. It's a real crowd pleaser especially when Chris puts on the show.
