Default RO-MAN pork puller

Any caterers out there use the RO-MAM pork puller? The video looks like it works pretty good. Any other thoughts/gadgets out there than can help ease the pulling 100+ pounds of pork.

Here is the link. http://www.porkpuller.com/

Thanks
Jeremy

I'd like to give it a try, but I think the price point is too high.

does seem a little pricey. i've never had to pull 100+ pounds at a time so not sure how long it would take, but the bear claws do the job pretty quick and are much cheaper

I have no personal experience but when people have asked about these in the past, I believe some have had issues where it turns the pork into mush.

Should probably be called a "Pork Shredder"

it does make the pork into a finer/more shredded but its fine for sandwiches. It easily beats pulling 100lbs by hand.

I bought one from a different guy and really like it.

http://gotbbq.webs.com/

It does shred the pork, and is perfect for catering. I can shred 4-5 butts at one time in like 30 seconds. Would not use it for competition, but for catering/vending it works great. I think it is a little cheaper too than the other version.

Not conected to the company at all, just a happy user.

I catered my cousins wedding and was dreading hand pulling 16 Boston Butts. I found the Ro-man pork puller and ordered one, believe me it was worth the money. I pulled all 16 butts in 30 minutes and you couldn't tell it wasn't pulled by hand. Might be the best investment next to my thermapen. Hope this helps.

Have a friend with one. Used it for a Lions Club fund raiser. Forget how many butts were shredded with it. But it worked well.

Will work for a little. I went through about 4 of them and the broke all the time and burned out drills. great concept for a few butts here and there but no good for high volume. You are better off getting one fabricated by a welder so there are no bolts involved

We were putting three large butts into a five gallon bucket. 20 seconds later, pork ready to sauce and serve. We were cooking 1200 to 2000 pounds of pork per day and were very glad to have some Roman pork pullers there to use. Not for comps but high volume. We did pull what was left of the fat caps first. Welded ones do work better.Steve.

If you would stop buying those $10 harbor freight drills then they wouldn't burn out
