View Full Version : The Beast and the Butt Slapper

11-21-2010, 06:58 AM
One of our last big winter cooks for the season was wet and cold but worth it just the same. Started out firing up the beast around 5 AM and rubbin three cases of butts. Some wentinthe beast and the others in the ProQ-XL. Could have got them all in the beast but the pro was feeling left out. This lil cook was for our local rugby team.





It was cooooooolllllld outside as you can tell by the steam when I started slappinn my butts. :icon_shy

Now there is a Pork Pullin Idea! Nice shot's of the smoker Dr., but I really like the automated pork puller. I would imagine there is a fine line between decently pulled and mush meat? It would seem you could easily go to far with that thing, but what a time saver if done right!

Wow, great lookin butts. Like DD above, your pulling method is awesome. Could you post some pictures of your puller device?

True you can go too far with it and I was afraid I was going to get to that point when the butts started steaming as I busted them but in the end everything was fine in fact there were some large chunks that needed seeing to towards the end of the process. I built two slappers one smaller than the other and gave them both a run last night. I found that the longer tines bent but the shorter were fine.

I'll never pull a mass load of butts by hand again. :heh:

Thank you. I simply chuck it up in a cordless drill and wiz away. My cordless battery is getting old now and the torque is not up to today's standards but I feel this helped in not over doing the pulling. If using a corded drill things could be a bit tricky first time around.

This was the small diameter slapper.




I'll get those after photos up real soon gotta go wash them now ( didn't get home till 11:30 PM ) .

Thanks guys and I tell you what, without this thing it would have been a struggle if not impossible to feed all those mouths warm food on time. As you know Rugby players can eat big not to mention they had been drinking all day. On our arrival the Oompah band was in full swing and the place was a beer paradise.

We were given a 20 minute serving window to get the food in and the left overs out. Reason for this is they have a history of food fights after they are full and the band refuses to play. lol We got in , set up ,slapped them butts, loaded the platters and the girls ran the food upstairs.

Turn around time from set up to packed up= 1 hour.:thumb: Stopped for a drink at our local to wash the day away. Great gig for us and a excellent end to the season.

Your invention is a great idea. :thumb:
Made the first one over a year ago now there is someone back home selling them but I can't remember what he calls them. I can't take credit for the invention but there was nothing like it to my knowledge back then.
