For this week’s review I was sent the Ro-Man Pork Puller from Rob Mandeville, owner of the Ro-Man Pork Puller Co.
The Ro-Man Pork Puller is made of solid stainless steel. It’s around 14 inches long and the disc is 5 inches wide with 6 welded 2 inch long spikes.
The shaft of the Ro-Man Pork Puller fits into a standard power drill. Once attached to your power drill it can pull a pork butt in as little as 6 seconds.
Below is a demo video of the Ro-Man Pork Puller in action:
I am simply amazed and just can’t believe how easy the Ro-Man Pork Puller was to use. I have always used a set of Bear Paws to pull my pork butts. I was never really impressed with how they worked and the amount of time and effort I had to spend using them. I noticed after using the Ro-Man Pork Puller that this 7lb pork butt was pulled much faster and there was so much less waste that I could make better use of the finished product.
The Ro-Man Pork Puller would be a very efficient tool for those that have a lot of pork butts to pull, like a Caterer/Vendor. I am not sure if this would be the best product for competition since it shreds the pork a little finer then some might like. This may also be a little overkill for use by your typical backyard griller like myself, but I can tell you I will never go back to using those Bear Paws again after using this simple, yet amazing product!
The cost of the Ro-Man Pork Puller including shipping is $67.95. This may be a sticking point for some people, but if you cook a lot of pork butts it’s well worth the price. It’s also American Made, which is always a plus in my book!
Last thing I want to point out is that I highly recommend using a corded power drill with the Ro-Man Pork Puller. The reason being you might have to work the trigger of your drill quite a bit if you are pulling any large amounts of pork, which could kill your battery faster. I also tried using a cordless 18v Black & Decker and let’s just say the Ro-Man Pork Puller wouldn’t even spin when I placed it in the pork butt to pull it.
