Hello Marcos:
I had a similar problem and I took my plasmid containing the methylated ClaI 
site out of DH5alpha and put it into BW58, isolated plasmid DNA and now it 
cuts perfectly.
BW58 is dcm- and dam-
don't know the rest of its genotype

By the way, I think HB101 is easy to transform, I haven't tried it myself
