    Best way to Pull Pork

    I use Bear Claws and they work well but it takes time. Doing some searching for some alterantives and came across this











    On top of everything else it looks to be made and sold from North Platte Nebr!!!!!!

    While the price isn't bad @ about $70 I was woundering if anyone here had used one before I order.


    Here is their web site

    Those things will give you anal cancer.

    Seriously though...I was going to buy some of the bear claws at some point, but post a review on this thing when you get one!

    I believe it depends on if it is filtered or unfilterd!

    OK SO I got up at 4AM Saturday and put some pork on the smoker. Thirteen hours later I was ready to give it a try. All I got to say is this is everything it was advertised as and more.. I had two pork butt's and a pork loin ( about 25 Lb of raw meat) on the smoker and I "pulled" all of it in about 4 Min and it was a better job than I could ever have gotten done by hand and it would have taken 30 - 45 Min I bet. Simple but amasing. One word of advice..... make sure you use a variable speed drill, I can't image what a full speed single speed drill would have had happen.

    Here is a video that my daughter shot using her Ipod for a single Butt. As you can see it was pulled in about a minute.

    Was in Sams Club last week getting the pork butt and saw that they had it now for $299. That is a good price for this. I believe Costco has it too. Along with Cabella's and Bass PRo. THere are two sizes. I have the larger and that is what is in the photo and what Sams has.


    Search Masterbuilt 40" electric smoker

    This is model 20070311

    Freezer works great. I always smoke more than I ever would use when I go to the effort if smoking meat. IT is just as good warmed fromt he freezer.

    I have that one too and got it from Sam's.

    The larger size is the way to go. I think the smaller one might not fit a full rack of ribs w/o it being palced on the diagonal on a shelf, whcih would limit the number of racks you could get in it. It isn't much more money than the smaller size either.

    Love the electric - the temperature control is great. Purists may sniff at it, but if you can't tend a wood-fired smoker all the time this is a very good way to go. The electric takes care of the temp; you just throw in a handful of chips now and then.

    The glass door front has "smoked over", though, need to find a way to clean it that doesn't involve chemicals that might be released into the inside when it heats up...
