I have to cook about 24 boston butts in a few weeks, and want to get some claws for pulling pork. Where is a good place to get them?

    Thanks, now that I have seen photos and names, I found them on eBay for $11.99 with free shipping.

    Thanks.

    I did two 9 lb. butts last weekend. After I took them off the BGE (18 hours) I wrapped them in foil and then a towel and put them in a cooler for three hours. When it was time to eat, I unwrapped one at a time, placed them in a 10 x 13 pan, put latex gloves on, and pulled them with my fingers. It was very easy and I was able to pull the lumps of fat with my fingers.

    If I had to cook as many as you, I would a few sets of claws and a lot of help.

    Try fredsmusicandbbq.com. He features them on his YouTube video

    When I read this, I had to look at it and see if I was the one who wrote it. :laugh:

    HA! That's got bad news written all over it. I have visions of pork hanging from the lights in the kitchen. :D

    For me, when it comes to pulling pork, I'm going to have to draw the line at power tools.

    ... and want to pull a butt in record time, check this out. One testimonial said they pulled 150 pounds in 8 minutes.
