All new natural BBQ scraper

My understanding is that this is not an April Fools item. This is solid wood. (not that hollow stuff). It comes with a full warranty.

I see it is for sensitive grills. I'm not worried about my grill's feelings so I use one of these. Lasts a long time and it is cheap.

I don't know about that not being a fools joke for in the description it says it won't harm sensitive grills. so what is a sensitive grill? I didn't know they had emotions.

I wonder how a grill can be sensitive, given the temperatures they endure. It appears this block of wood forms the grooves as you use it. Gimme a good wire brush any day, and I'll replace the grill when it succumbs.

Which is why we always follow the wire brush scrubbing with a damp cloth wipe. One can always use crumpled aluminum foil in place of a brush when in a pinch.

Silly me, never thought of it! And I've been grilling most of my life. I'll start paying more attention.

I subscribe to a newsletter called The Grommet, innovative products new to the market. This scraper was featured some time ago, but I just noticed it on the site today when looking for something else. You'll find the story here. This is a great outfit, lots of products made by small entrepreneurs.

Wow, the exchange rate can't be THAT bad...Amazon is supplying through an intermediary who's "stepping on it" a touch!

Who needs to spend $61 for a crappy piece of wood to scrape your BBQ. After a few uses, it will be really gross and all chewed up anyways. Many times I have forgotten to bring a BBQ scraper along in the trailer and have resorted to visiting my "firewood supply" to obtain a scraper to be used for the BBQ. I thin sliver of wood cut with an axe from a piece of firewood works great and the greasy remains are easily disposed of in the fire pit when I am done. And next time I need a BBQ scraper, I just slice another thin piece of a different piece of firewood with my axe.

Edit: Just as an afterthought, go to a lumber supply store and pick up a few cedar shingles. They would work great as scrapers and would be much cheaper than the Amazon version.

I paid $12 for a foot long chunk of clear Oak 1" X 4" ( or five ).
And then I had to pay somebody to drill holes for my instruments ( had to find somebody with proper size hole saw first ).
At $61, I assume it's not just a chunk of wood.

I have heard horror stories about people ingesting the wire bristles from grill brushes (not intentionally!), so good to be aware of that and make sure there are none left behind after brushing the grill.

I don't take a grill camping, though I know lots of folks do. At home, I just throw the wire rack on a piece of cardboard, and hit it with oven cleaner. Wait 30 minutes, hose off, done.
