Two pairs of nitril gloves and the Bear paws at the end of my wrists.

My neighbor took stainless and made his own pork puller. The thing is a beast when it comes to pork butts but its more of a fine shred vs. "pulled" pork. I can have a whole boston done in about 9.3 seconds.

The best tools are the ones at the end of your arms. I do have some of the Bear Claws and they are good for the initial breakdown, I just like to feel for... and remove all the fatty deposits by hand.

I don't mean to offend anyone but if you need power tools to pull apart a butt you might to check out some other threads here on the Brethren.

just sayin............

I was wondering what y'all were using, and if you had any words of wisdom.
Thanks!

I know for a fact that Tish just recommended those suckers on another thread very much like this one... so you've at least got her backing them up. I'm with the hands crowd, so cannot speak of them myself.

I used nitrile gloves for the first time on my New Year butt and I must say I preferred the larger chunks to the result I get with my Bear Paws. Although with the finer shredded meat you get using tools over hands, you can usually get a couple more servings out of a butt.

You were the villian on Enter the Dragon? That is too cooll!

I use my hands if the meat isnt too hot. If it is, I use the pvc gloves I got free when I ordered some rubs from Simply Marvelous.

I use the Raichlien gloves and meat rake combo for pulling/shredding and it makes quick work of all the pork and beef I've done since getting both

I use a cleaver and a turkey fork when I have few butts to do. However, when I have catering job and have about 24 -30 butts, I use my homemade version of the pork puller. I can shred 2 butts in about 30 seconds.

When we are cooking for big crowds of 200-300 we use the pork puller on a drill.

At home I just wear some heat proof BBQ gloves and UAE my hands.

If you get the pork up to 205 and then let it rest 30 mins or more it just falls apart easily.
