Default Fine Shredded Barbecue

Does anyone know where I can get a reasonably priced shredder to make
"North Carolina Style" barbecue easier? Please advise.

Cook your meat properly and you'll find that a fork is all the shredder you
need. If your meat won't pull (shred) easily, you haven't cooked it long
enough.

Read the faq http://www.eaglequest.com/~bbq/

I have had a couple chunks of meat that were a little hard to pull, but
that was my fault. I used to get anxious and take them off too early.
Not anymore and no tough meat pulling anymore either. It pulls with
the fingers and takes a very short time to get it done. A few chunks
always hang together and need to be pulled with forks, but it's still
easy and *fast*.

You might try a set of "Bear Paws".

I think I got mine from Hawgeyes BBQ...hawgeyesbbq.com

Real NC BBQ is pulled not shredded. (a very fine distinction there)(Yes I
know, some places chop it too)

I've tried those but really prefer the two forks like Jack mentioned. I
can't explain why though.

That's where I'd look. They're in there somewhere.

Unless your using it for a commercial enterprise I'd say do it by hand.
Pull it then chop it with a blade. The fellow at the Lexington
Restaurant in North Carolina, had a machine to shred his pork shoulders.
Probably costing a hundreds dollars.

I'm with Jack on this one. If you cook the pork to the right temperature, it
will basically pull itself. If you are having to force it, then it need to
cook longer.
