    Curios if anyone uses the drill attachment and if you do, do you like it? I'm thinking of getting the one below

    Yes I have had one for several years now. It works fairly well, Doesn't do skin very well, Some of the meat gets shredded pretty good, some of it turns to almost a paste. It's never evenly shredded/pulled.

    I tried one once and didn't like how the meat came out, however, a couple of my friends swear by them.

    Try it and see what you think.

    Just be careful what sort of container you are shredding in.  That tool would also make short work of a disposable aluminum pan and probably most plastic containers.

    Unless your doing a whole lot of meat, then I would pull the meat by hand.

    We like big chunks & when you do it by hand you can pull out any fat or connective tissue that didn't render out.

    For us there's nothing worse than a big chunk of fat in our PP sammie.

    But that's just the way we roll.

    Feel the same way Al. Reading the reviews people are talking about it taking an hour to pull 15 pounds of pork. They need some practice rather than a drill attachment.

    Just watched a episode of Man Fire Food where they used one of those gizmos.

    He only pulsed the trigger, instead of just letting it rip. It seemed to do a decent job, but they were doing a rather large amount of PP.

    I can see the convenience of it if you're doing a large amount for service.

    Hmmm.....not sure about that shredder. I use the bear claws, does nice job and like Al, we like some bigger chunks in the PP and you can remove any additional fat that did not completely render.

    Nothing but a good pair of gloves is all you need.

    Here's how I do it.

    Gloved hands, a couple of large forks or bear claws always worked for me.  I can't see it taking over an hour for 15 pounds of PP with any method I ever heard of (unless they were waiting on the PP to cool as it was too hot for bare hands or thin gloves?).  Hell, every time I've cooked for a crowd needing 15 pounds it was all consumed in well under 30 minutes.  Good meat goes fast!!!
