Ever since I got myself a new grill, barbecued meats suddenly became a staple at my house. Chicken, turkey, ham, beef- any kind of meat that you can roast, I will gladly cook. But I do admit that I have a weakness for pulled pork.

Now, cooking pulled pork isn't a complicated task, especially when you're doing it over a grill. Just get some prime pork shoulder ready; season it with a marinade made from soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and chilies; then cook it over the grill until the pork is done. What's hard is the "pulling" that comes after.

Sure, you can use two forks to pull the pork, but this is just a good way to damage and waste your good forks. Thankfully, I found this pulled pork shredder claws on Amazon.com at a relatively cheap price.

At first glance, these things look like a mere gimmick of some sort. You hold these things in your fists (so that your fists resemble bear claws) and attack the meat in question. While these claws are marketed as "pork shredders," they're much more than that.

Here's how I use these claws: first I use them to prick the pork so that the marinade will flavor the meat more thoroughly. I also use these claws to transfer the pork onto the grill and to turn it over when one side is already done. So, in reality, these claws have a multitude of uses- they're not just mere "meat shredders."

Compared to using a fork, shredding meat with these meat claws are infinitely a lot easier and faster. The claws can grip any kind and size of meat firmly, and the points are sharp enough to completely rip it with just a slight force. Your arms won't get tired after a long pork shredding session if you're using these claws; they're shaped to fit nicely in the hand and the grip is. Another great plus is that my hands stay clean after shredding meat. The claws are big enough so that the meat doesn't come into contact with your hands in any part of the shredding process. There's also a reduced chance of your hands getting burnt.

Let's go over to the build quality. While the claws are made out of a thermo plastic polymer and is heat resistant to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, its strength is astounding, they are as tough as nails. As of this writing, I've grilled and pulled countless pieces of meat using these claws, and they're still like brand new. No scratches and the points seem to have kept their sharpness. They clean up pretty well too; just wash them with soapy water, wipe clean, then dry.

There are a lot of gimmicky grill and kitchen accessories out there (most of which you'll use once, then completely forget that they exist), but these pulled pork shredder claws are definitely not one of them. If you're a grilling aficionado like me (or simply want to cook pulled pork without destroying your forks), then these things are a must have. They're cheap, high quality, and definitely do what they're supposed to do plus more.
