What are the Mountain Grillers Meat Claws?

Never bend a fork shredding pulled pork again with Mountain Grillers Meat Claws.

Meat Claws are a pair of solid, handheld shredders with large, sharp tips. Each pair comes with two claws, and each claw has a wide handle with plenty of knuckle room, so any size hand can grab and shred meat quickly and safely. They’ll save you time shredding because they are larger than cutlery and can grab more meat at once. Plus, they’ll keep from burning your hands in the process.

They should last you for years, too. Mountain Grillers Meat Claws are made of durable stainless steel and strong plastic designed to shred and pull apart meat in a way that looks and feels less messy than using your hands. 

When you’re not using the claws, they’re thin enough to store in any standard-size kitchen drawer.

You use Meat Claws like you would your fingers… If your fingers were sharp, durable prongs immune to heat.

The claws will not only save you time shredding meat, but they’ll also save you time cleaning your barbecue tools—just rinse them and throw them in the dishwasher when you’re finished.

Verified Amazon purchaser Tyler Templeton loves Meat Claws. “These meat claws are really good for the price. Solid metal and don’t feel like they will break unlike my last set of claws that did in fact break after 25-35 uses and wash cycles. For the money I don’t know if you can beat these,” they wrote.
