Pulled Pork using the paddle KA attachment?

I've got a pork shoulder cooking away and was told the easiest way to shred the pork was to put it in my KA with the paddle attachment.

Has anyone actually tried this? Does it work well? Or should I just shred with forks?

  1. Haven't tried it. I can't imagine it's a good idea. Part of the pulling process involves removing hunks of fat and gristle.

      That's a good point about the fat.... this is my first pulled pork attempt!

    2. I would be worried it would turn it into baby food ...

      Its not that hard to do by hand. In fact I usually do it by hand and not with forks.

          Told by the 'truth' found on the internet :) hence, why I come to the 'hounds for vetting and help!

            That's why you come to "the source" of sage advice!

        2. I'd stick with the forks or do it by hand.

          1. Pull it while its still pretty warm though.
