Review: Bear Paws/Claws Meat Shredder

I have been barbecuing and smoking meat for several years and when I started out I did not see the need for a set of Bear Paws or Meat Shredders. When I cookrd a pork butt I would just use a pair of forks to shred the pork to make pulled pork, why would I need meat shredders?

One day my wireless meat thermometer broke and I needed to by a new one and it came with a pair of meat shredders. My initial thought was "that is nice but I will never use them". Now I use them all the time!! When it comes to making pulled pork these are much easier than using a pair for forks to shred 10 lbs of pork. However, that is not what I use them for the most.

In our house we cook a lot of meat (steaks and roasts). I use my meat shredders to move the meat around (such as from a pan to the cutting board), and to help hold the meat when cutting it. I cannot count the number of times in the past when I dropped something because I was trying to use a set of tongs or a spatula to transfer a roast or other piece of meat to the cutting board. That is no longer a problem; with the meat shredders I simply poke the shredders into the side of the meat and transfer it to the cutting board without any problems. I then use one of the meat shredders to hold the meat while I slice it. Again, in the past I would use a fork to hold the meat, but the meat shredder is a much better option. Because it is larger the meat shredder is much easier on the hand and it also holds the meat much better when slicing a roast compared to a fork.

I never thought that I would say this, but I do not know what I would do without my Meat Shredders. They are very flexible for a variety of things in the kitchen other than shredding meat. If you have been thinking about getting a pair I suggest that you go for it. If you are hesitant, pick up a pair when they go on sale and see how well the work for yourself, you won't be sorry.
