I smoked four pork butts this last weekend for a Boy Scout bridgeover, and was dreading pulling all of them because of time restraints and I just didn't want to. Well, a friend of mine said he does his in a Ktchen Aide mixer using the paddle attachment. So, I tried it, and the results were amazing. I just put in chunks of pork ( fat include) and within 20 minutes I was done. It looked as if I pulled it by hand. If I can help just one person out, I did my job.

What a great idea! It just so happens that I'm doing 4 butts (45 pounds total) for a friend-of-a-friend Saturday, so I'll give this a try. I wasn't looking forward to pulling them while they were still very hot. How big are the chunks you use? Like cut a 10-pounder in quarter's and do the whole thing?

Bugs, mine were all 10 lbs as well. I don't think I quartered them, maybe a little smaller. I started off on the lowest speed and increased a little as needed. I hope it works as well for you as it did for me. Let me know. It was a lifesaver.

Great idea!!
I’ll have to try it.

I use this paint mixer that I picked up at HD for around $4 and a drill to do the same thing. Works great too Smile

Thanks, zski! I'll give it a whirl and report my scientific observations. My only concern is I usually do a lot of 'Quality Control' when I'm pulling (tasting), so I'm worried I might not get enough to eat. Uhhh...I mean something might slip by me Laughing

Fellas...
Get ya a Ro-Man Pork Puller. I can zip through a case of butts in minutes! Yes a little pricy but hey if time is an issue you'll love it. I think eBay has other brands also. Made in Nebraska.
porkpuller.com watch the video!

I gotta say this method worked great! I cut each butt into 6 pieces and did 4 pieces in each batch on the #4 speed setting. Took me about 10 minutes to 'pull' 45 pounds (uncooked weight) of hot butt Wink I also put in a bit of Roxy's Mustard sauce while I was mixing and sent an additional half gallon with the meat. I got a text an hour after he picked it up that said 'OMFG!!! This is the BEST BBQ I've ever had!'. My head swelled up with so much pride I couldn't get through the doorway of my house Laughing Laughing

I enjoyed doing this for a friend-of-a-friend and I also made a few bucks in the process. I did the butts on my WSM, so no fire-tending, and I was making more sauce anyway. Add in the easy pulling and I call this little exercise in capitalism a success! Laughing Laughing

Bugs, so glad this worked for you. Like I said, if I can help one person, I did my job. Well, it looks like I did my job. Thanks for letting me know how it went, I been wondering. Now mixing in the mustard sauce, that's genius.

I usually do that because it adds a little extra zing to it. Mustard and PP are a perfect match, but the traditional South Carolina Mustard sauce is too sweet for my taste and Roxy's hits the right balance IMO.

I just did 2 butts last weekend and I didn't know this. Did you use the regular paddle attachment or the one with the rubber sides on it?

I am with you on the Roxy's mustard sauce and pulled pork marriage. I have converted a few people to go that route, instead of BBQ sauce.

Mantipp, yes, just the regular paddle attachment. It works wonders.
