I have used bear claws in the past, but lately I've switched to rubber gloves. I picked up some waterproof gloves intended for handling chemicals at the local hardware store, and they work great. I still use the bear claws sometimes for moving stuff around, but overall I think a nice set of rubber gloves that come to about mid-forearm are going to be a lot more handy.

I'll use insulated, chemical-resistant, water-proof gloves that I got for around 3 bucks/pair @ Northern Tool. Or sometimes it's the Bear Claws. Depends on how much pulling I'm doing & what's handy to grab at the time.

Same here. There shouldn't be much fat left but separate that out too.

I use either two forks or a pair of rubber gloves. I've got small hands, so those 'one size fits all' gloves tend to be more of a PITA than anything.... usually start with forks to get the most of it broken up into big pieces, then on to the gloves for fine pulling.

I use gloves so I can take out the fat while I'm pulling.

I use a pair of kitchen gloves - the yellow ones people use to wash dishes. I don't put cotton gloves on first, though, so I end up saying "chit" and waving my hands around a lot to cool them off. Then I cuss myself because waving them around doesn't help when they're gloved. Then stick my hands back in and start the process again. I never said I was smart.
