My pork butt should be done in a few hours. How does one pull it so it resembles carolina pulled pork bbq?

  • Lots of folks simply use their hands with some thick rubber gloves.

    I use two table forks and shred.

    Actually, I've never had pulled pork in NC that was just pulled. It may exist, but in the 5-6 years I lived there, and the subsequent 30-some years of in-law visits, I never saw a single place that served it.

    As Pete recently said... "Yes, chopped. Deal with it." Or words to that effect. :lol:

    Watch the vid, do what Chris Lilly does, maybe a bit longer, and you'll nail NC Q. Two cleavers work well too. :) And don't forget the vinegar sauce (as seen here)...

    I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded... dead.

    Glad to help. :) I don't usually do the two cleaver thing. I like it better that way, but it does make rather a mess!! :lol:

  • A couple of forks work well to really shred things up. Personally, I would rather have a chunky consistancy rather then shredded but there is no wrong way.

    When I pulled mine off this morning I used two forks to do the shredding. Going to have some pork sandwiches for dinner!
