Did you know, if you take a pair and shove it into a really hot piece of meat, the tips can bend? Yes, it can happen. My sister will be bummed when she finally notices.

I've found it a lot faster and easier to wear a thick pair of cotton gloves under a pair of vinyl gloves.

1 pick out the bone
2 place hands on/near the ends - fingers up
3 turn butt/hands over (thumbs up) as you do that move fingers thru the butt with gentle pressure - it should pretty much fall apart and a lot of steam will rise
4 tear into smaller parts as needed

After you do this once or twice, it takes about 5-10 seconds per butt.
