Bear claws?
« on: July 09, 2007, 01:02:29 PM »
I found these http://www.bbq-tools.com/store/moreinfo.cfm?Product_ID=51 on line earlier today.  I have seen "better" ones as well.  Anyone use them to shred up that Boston?  I've tried everything except my hands to pull it, always looking for something a little more painless.  :-)

I had a pair of the same type for a while now. They are very sturdy, and work very well in shredding pork, chicken; mixing coleslaw and a variety of other uses. I got mine form Allied Kenco.

Cabela's sells them too....about 10 bucks and worth every penny.

I may get some one day myself.  Probably will never need it for pulled pork since mine practically pull themselves.  :D Perhaps I could use them to pick it up before it falls apart.  ;D

I use to think the same way, but it is so much easier with the meat claws. Also I prefer the way the shredded pork turns out, compared to just using forks or plan hands. If or when you decide to get a pair you won't be disappointed.

   I thought for sure Wal-Mart would have them but no luck. I've been looking for them for a while now. They look real handy to have besides the fact that I'm a kitchen gadget freak. I hate to pay all that postage and handling for just that item so the search continues. If it's to be found in N.W. Ct., I'll find them. :D :D :D

I feel the same way about buying one inexpensive item and having to pay shipping and handling that cost more then the product itself. The next time you order sausage, and/or curing supplies add them to your order.

I had a great guy hook me up with my set of claws....love 'em, but they hurt my cheeks when I try to eat my pulled pork. ;D ;D
