Probably "Bear Paws". I've seen 'em used, and they seem to work fine.

can I buy a set. For the last 6 months pork shoulders have been my
smoking meat of choice. Would love to find an easier way to pull the
meat, and keep from burning my hands as well!

Thanks for any help and advice.



I use heavy food grade rubbber (actually vinyl) gloves. They do
actually make a difference in the heat to your hands. Also, you have
control of pulling and mixing that utensils will not give you.

What he said. I use some heavy-duty vinyl (?) rubber (?) gloves from a
restaurant-supply store. Much better control over pulling, shredding,
chunking. Only problem is getting them off once they're good and
greasy; a paper towel helps tug them off.

I usually pull pork in the morning, after an overnight cook. Anyone
else pull pork with two or three bowls of sauce at hand and a glass of
iced tea, for a porkoliscious breakfast? After all, got to make sure
it's fit for company.

I use Orka silicone mitts for taking the meat out of the pit. For actually
pulling the meat, a pair of carving or serving forks (or one of each) works
fine - no mitts needed.

I saw those also and knew I had seen them before and low and behold I saw them
on another show on Food Network where they were used as salad tossing utensils.
That jogged my memory to the fact that I had seen them in some kind of culinary
catalog in a salad bowl set.
