Default Meat mixer for pulled pork.

Has anyone ever used a meat mixer, like the ones for sausage, to break up pulled pork?

The thought came to me as I was elbow deep in hot pork last weekend. I think it would be easier and faster then by hand.

I like pulled pork in finger sized pieces. I don't think that a machine can duplicate that. Try it and see what happens----but my guess would be Pork Pate'

We used a table top buffalo grinder at a charity cook to chop up brisket. It worked great and left the pcs in a nice size.

I have used a kitchenaid, although I can not remember exactly which attachment i used. It was the lowest speeding settign as well.

Although it was not 'pork pate', it WAS more musheds than I typically like.

I know there are folks that do this frequently.

i feel there is no substitute for hand pulled pork! we feel a certain amount of pride in hand pulling our meat.ive eaten pork run through a machine i dont like it at all.i know of one place that all they do is pull the bone and fat cap and run through machine you can find all kinds of neat stuff in there meat we do chop ours up with a pizza rocker knife after its all pulled just to make it easier to portion control but the peices are still pretty big.
stand back son watch this!!!

I think they make different blades even for the commercial grinders but sinse I grew up in Memphis, I agree with our Tennessee brother--pull and chop is the only way to go!!

I have used a buffalo chopper, bear claws, forks etc.
