Been a while since I've posted up here. This past Fourth of July I went to a friends lake house outside of Ft. Worth and we smoked a whole hog, it was great. What was not so great was we pulled it with our bare hands. That was HOT...
At home it's just the wife and I so I never do huge junks of meat, much less whole critters, so it's never been an issue.
We're going back up to our friends for New Years weekend and they have secured another hog and want a repeat performance. All the neighbors and friends will be there (out in the country, so not MANY neighbors..lol)
What I would like to know is where to find A: Bear Claws and B: food safe Rubber Gloves.
I could be off on the name Bear Claws, it's been a while since I've seen a show where anyone has used them, but if that is not the correct name then essentially what I'm looking for is something that we can use to Pull the meat. I know I can use forks, etc.... But I'd like something that makes the process as fast and easy as possible.
Get the food on the serving plates as fast and hot as possible is the idea...Last time was not bad, but it Could be better... :)
Thanks in advance
