Roman Pork Puller

A while back, someone started a thread about this beauty"


http://www.porkpuller.com/

I bought one. I used it for the first time and it was a total disaster. Pork on the ceiling. It didn't pull the entire butt. Was certain I had wasted $70.00.

As I thought about it for nearly two years after the first catastrophe, it occurred to me that I simply had not cooked my pork butt long enough.

Today I smoked two 3 pound pork butts for 7 hours at 250. First 6 hours inside foil. I marinated them for 36 hours in dijon mustard and generic pork rub.

I pulled the butts straight off of the smoker and into my pot. Fired up the Roman Pork Puller and BAM. I had pulled approximately 5 1/2 pounds of pork in under 10 seconds. It was incredible. If you do pulled pork, this baby, now that I figured out my mistake, is a no-brainer.

First photo is immediately after I used the Roman Pork Puller, literally 30 seconds after the meat came off the smoker. The second photo is after I mixed it with a sauce.

That's impressive. I didn't know the Romans had drills though. :wink:

I use bear claws and they work pretty fast.

You should smoke them for an hour or two and then wrap them in foil. you'll get better smoke flavor that way.

I've done it that way before, but this time I did not because i wanted to make sure that the connective tissue would cook down.

My go to is about 5 hours on the smoke until they reach 150 internal. I then wrap them and toss them into a 400 degree oven until they reach 200 - 205. I pull them from the oven, let them sit for about an hour and then pull them. The juices you retain this way add a ton of flavor, IMO.

I've had one of these things for several years. Not cooking long enough does cause issues. I also use a pot. Bear claws are not even close.

The best thing about it is you can always pull just before serving or at a large function, pull as needed. I finish the smoke early, throw the entire butts in a cooler. And then Take them out and pull them about a minute before serving.

I do the standard: Smoke em until they stall and then wrap until 200-205F. Let rest for an hour if possible before pulling.
