I use a home made pork puller. It will do a ten pound butt in 15 seconds

My process probably takes too long, but I trim a pretty good amount of the fat first. I take each section individually, trim any fat, and give it a very coarse chop (1.5" by 1.5" or so).

I prefer plastic food service gloves and a cleaver when it comes to trimming fat. I can feel it with my hands and I can separate larger sections quickly with a cleaver.

Trimming does take me longer, but, for me, the coarse-chopping with a cleaver saves a lot of over hand-pulling with pvc/insulated gloves. I find hand pulling to be a little tedious. A few whacks with a cleaver, and boom, I've immediately got the consistency I want.

I use the bone I remove from the butt to cut the clod down to size and then I use my hands, that are in gloves, to finish the job. Works well for me.

I usually just do it with my bare hands a burn the hell out of myself in the process. I have used nitrile surgical type glove on occasions when I wasn't somewhere that I could wash my hands before and after. I don't use forks and I don't think I would like using gloves that were thick enough to prevent me from feeling where the fat is.

I usually start by dimming the lights, maybe lighting some incense, and putting on some slow music...

I use two large forks. I think they are salad serving forks or something. They are like 3 times the size of a regular fork. They work great.

I use my hands unless it's one of those North Carolina racing pigs. Then it's the chain and my old Jimmy pick up.

Bear Claws are the best to start with.

Best way to pull your pork is with your hands! Lmao
I use my hands, either with Steve's gloves or food handling gloves. I have seen the mixer method, and a company sells something similar to what Hunt in made. I like to use my hands so I can get most of the nasty fat out.

By hand, thin pair of food handling gloved only. I like to get the larger chunks of fat out by hand rather than shredding it all up together using bear claws.

I had a welder at work make me one, and it is INCREDIBLE !

I frequently cook 20+ butts at a time and this thing saves so much trouble and time!
It seemed like a gimmick at first, but when I tried it....wow
