Valentine’s/birthday week was so great! On Wednesday the 10th, Rhys slept in until 8:20! That’s gift enough! Grandma took me out to lunch at a delicious restaurant, and then the family went to Olive Garden and we all stuffed our faces! Friday, Justin and I went on a double date with my sister, Madison, and her new boyfriend to see a comedy sketch show at BYU, then we went to Pop ‘N’ Sweets for chocolate and floats. Yesterday, mom and dad went on a date, Madison and her boyfriend went on a date, so Justin and I decided to take Paige out with us (and Rhys) to dinner. Justin and I exchanged Valentine’s Day presents: I got chocolate and a new amazing message ball and Justin got flavored peanuts and the Marvel Avenger’s Encyclopedia. Today, we had a family dinner, including Madison’s boyfriend. Justin decided to make some crock pot BBQ pork, and it was delicious. So, I’m going to let him take over now…
This is another sporadic recipe spawned by the generosity of Cave Tools. This time, we were graced with their Meat Handling Claws. Upon seeing these claws, my mind immediately went to pulled pork. So here’s the recipe:
4 lbs pork
20 oz root beer
1/4 c honey mustard
1/2 c BBQ sauce
1/4 c brown sugar
1) Sprinkle ground mustard, garlic salt, and all spice on the pork and rub it in.
2) the crock pot, place the pork, and poor in the root beer, honey mustard, BBQ sauce, and a squeeze or two of lime juice.
3) Cook for about 3-3.5 hours on low.
4) Take the pork out and use Cave Tool’s Meat Handling Claws to pull the pork apart. Place back in the pot.
5) Add in brown sugar and let it cook for another 3-3.5 hours on low.
6) Serve on or with bread. Enjoy!

So again, let me comment on the design of the claws. They look like Wolverine claws. (They also feel like them too, haha)
The claws are made from plastic, so I initially was uncertain about their strength, durability, and sharpness. Man, was I wrong. The grips on the handles are perfect and comfortable. The claws never yielded upon use and the tips pierced through the meat flawlessly, cooked or raw. Washing was very simple, they don’t take up much space at all when stored, and are lighter than a wooden spoon. Another very good product from Cave Tools. Simple, light, deceptively effective, and rather fulfilling. I mean, who wouldn’t want to rip through hunks of meat with Wolverine claws?
