Suggestions for shredder

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I usually smoke 40lbs of Pork at a time when i use my smoker.  However i find with a knife and by-hand seem to take forever.  I have run across the bear claws but i would like something like a meat grinder to help me do the job.  Any suggestions you guys would recommend?  I do have a stand-up right Kitchen Aid Mixer and i have seen this: http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-FPPA-Mixer-Attachment-Mixers/dp/B00004SGFM/ref=sr_1_4?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1315334977&sr=1-4 but it doesnt really go into detail if it has a meat shredder tool.   

 

thanks

That is not a shredder. I have that whole kit.  

 

I use some BBQ gloves for most of mine but have used two large salad forks with great success. Lots of folks here use Bear Claws. I beleive there may be a review in the Wiki section.

That KA set is basically a big "Salad Shooter".

I, too , use gloves. Either heavy "plumbers" gloves or cotton knit gloves covered by latex or nytril gloves. Granted, you sometimes have to move quick from the heat, but this way I pull/shred and clean at one time.

For a mechanical "shredder" you'd need to look at something with knives like a Buffalo Chopper from Hobart.

Kinda thinking out of the box, but...

It has rubber fingers, but it might be adaptable to make a pretty good shredder.

So would you hold the pork butt like that dude was holding the chicken and fling pork everywhere. That would be a sight. lurk.gif

Get yourself a pair of insulated rubber gloves they work awesome. I got mine in my Ronco rotisserie set.

I got the same gloves Ross. They work great. Of course I never tried to pluck a chicken though.

I just found the link for the gloves I got - inexpensive and work great -

If you are dead set against using your hands try tossing a few chunks into the bowl of your Kitchenaid with the regular mixing paddle attached and run it on low for a few seconds. Usually the pork is soft enough that the paddle should break it up without mushing it. But I don't think you could toss the entire butt in at one time.

What if you replace the rubber fingers on the plucker with the meat rakes? 107.gif

I'm kinda picky about my PP. 

 

Even when I smoke 4 to 6 Butts for the neighborhood Christmas party. I like to pull them by hand.

 

I like big chunks & want to make sure I get all the internal fat out and distribute the bark throughout.

 

I just use 2 pairs of vinyl disposable gloves, there is enough thickness to keep your hands from getting too hot & they are very flexible.

   Try locating a Restaurant Suply or a re-sale store and get a Buffalo. This is a tool made for doing the exact thing you are thinking of;$3K or soicon_eek.gif
