REVIEW: Broil King Meat Claws
Posted by Caveman Cooking on August 10, 2015
This is the second of five reviews & giveaways we are conducting as part of the Summer Grilling Review & Receive Series. At the end of this report are all the details of how you can win the item we are field testing this week. Be sure to read the rules.
This review is pretty simple: If you make pulled pork, pulled beef, pulled chicken, Carnitas, or any other meat dish that requires shredding said meat, YOU NEED THESE! Broil King scores again!!
Our Dutch Oven R&R Pulled Pork is a Cave clan favorite. Though, it is one of the more labor intensive recipes featured here on C3. Especially when you consider the effort involved in shredding an 8 pound Pork Butt. Until now, that is! Even though a properly cooked pork shoulder will easily fall apart, by the time you are finished shredding (usually 10-15 minutes) using two forks your hands can be quite tired, and even on the verge of cramping.
However, with the Broil King Meat Claws, your shredding time will be reduced by as much as 90%! The 8 pounder below was completely shredded in less than 90 seconds!! Your hands will thank you for the wide ergonomic handles, and large perfectly spaced tines, which contribute to the amazing comfort, as well as the incredible speed factor, of this tool.
When you pull (no pun intended) these meat claws from the package you’ll immediately notice the perfect balancing, and the heavy duty feel, their design imparts. The Broil King Meat Claws also come with a silicone holder/hanging coupler that will allow you to conveniently store them together … nothing worse than trying to find that “missing sock”. Broil King claims that the holder/coupler is heat resistant to 500°F and dishwasher safe! This tool is also accompanied by an information sheet that includes a recipe for Smoked Shredded Pork Barbecue Sandwiches and a claim that the tool itself is also machine washable. Though, we found that they cleaned up very nicely and swiftly by hand with a sponge and some soapy water.
So, if you are a shredder and want to get the job done comfortably, quickly, and easily, you need to get your claws on these claws! The Broil King Meat Claws are certainly a tool that should be in every barbecuer’s tool box. While these technically do qualify as a “sharp stick”, they are vastly better and receive our highest “5 Club” rating. Want to win some? Look below.
