Do your hands cramp up shredding your pork? Do they get to hot trying to pull it by hand? Check out the "Roman Pork Puller". I got this for christmas from my father. Well, I'll let the video do it's talking!

That's sweet man. I use bear claws. Two weeks ago I made a 10# roast and it took forever to shread it.

Manufacturer suggested price of $69.00

That's a bit steep.

If you were pulling maybe 150lb of pork I would maybe consider using one of those. However I am one of those guys that removes as much solid fat as I can, so I would still go through it with a gloved hand.

I agree with the above statement about meat not cooked enough if its difficult to pull a single butt.

My question is why don't we have more cooking tools that can be used on a cordless drill?

I don't think anyone would suggest you need this thing to pull a single shoulder. Hell, you can stir a 5 gallon bucket of paint with a big stir stick too, but I don't recommend it. Actually, I bet the big stirring paddle for joint compound would do a good job bangin up a shoulder.

no, you don't need to "pull" it. The whole point was, instead of having to glove up and spend 15 min getting the pork to desired sized shreds, this took 15 sec's tops. It pulled 3 10 lb butts in 30 secs after this clip was taken. It was a gift, no I would not spend the money on it. I thought you may get a laugh out of this, to each their own. Yes, the meat was cooked (14 hrs @230* till 195*, blades fell out as I was taking them out), I do a wee bit of smoking. This merely made it so you could feed a mass of people easily and quickly.

is it necessary? probably not

this redneck still approves and gives it a HELL YEAH!

and, when you think of that HELL YEAH, imagine Danny Joe Brown yellin' it, like at the beginning of Bounty Hunter.
