Anyone know where I can get some in the KC area?

Or what are better/easier ways to pull pork?

LOL, so far we have the three corners of town covered that I don't live near ... and ebay.

I'm really starting to consider a BBQ specialty shop in LS may be in my future.

I couldn't find any here in Wichita, go figure. And I was to lazy for ebay, but I found 2 big 4 pronged salad serving forks that work great and dont cramp my hands.
Similar to these.

Try Hawgeyes.com Fast service just bought 10 pair last month had them in three days. Seems everytime I use them around other people they want to buy them. Going to use the next week to pull sixty butts.

ROTFL - I was in Ankeny (where Hawgeyes is) under 48 hours ago doing a comp. I was actually surprised that Hawgeyes didn't have a vending tent selling things.

If you have a KitchenAid or other heavy duty stand mixer, cut the butt into 3-inch chunks. Drop the chunks into the mixer bowl. Use the triangle shaped beater on medium speed to knock the pork apart and shred it. If it's a little dry, add a little liquid. It takes about 30-seconds or so. Works for me.

That may work, but there is something about putting it in a mixer that makes me think I'm gonna end up with mush.

I like going thru the butt with my hands to pull out things i don't want people to eat. Couple of guys here use gloves like this:

Those work best for me. I really prefer touching my meat with my hands.

I also use the jersey gloves coated in PVC(i think) like those in the pic.

I tried the kitchenaid thing, once. Wasn't workin' out for me......
