Personalized Branding Irons?

edited 5:06PM in EggHead Forum
My father-in-law is getting an Egg for Christmas. I'm thinking about getting him a personalized branding iron for steaks and such. I've researched on the internet, but was wondering if anyone owns such items and if so where they purchased them. I'm also guessing some of you make them, or know someone who makes them. I'd love to give business to a fellow egger or egger referral.

  • Eggsellent,
    he doesn't do branding irons that i know of, but go to the lawnranger and order a personalized handle for the egg, or gridlifter. .. you will make his egg unique unto him, and support fellow eggors at the same time. . .

    Eggsellent,[p]Instead of a branding iron, why not get him some personalized grill tools from the Lawn Ranger?[p]Look at http://lawnrangerbbq.com/[p]sincerely,
    anonymous.[p]p.s. maybe your husband or brother in law would like them too...

  • Mark Backer,
    Ok, ok I got it. And I've already looked at those for my husband - opps I mean father-in-law. Now, back to the irons...

    Eggsellent,[p]one more thing. Them tools ain't gonna be of any use unless a brother's got a small egg in his arsenal, capiche?[p]Tell you what...you get a small for your husband for christmas and I bet he'll get you a table made to your specifications.

    Eggsellent,
    Your best bet will be at a wood working place. You can check this link as a starting point, but they have a local branch at Holcomb Bridge and 400. Also Highland Hardware would offer something similar, but it might cost more, they are in Virginia Highlands.[p]

  • Bobby-Q,
    I have one of this type for my woodworking projects. I don't think it would do very well on a well seared steak.[p]I go along with the other suggestions to buy something from Lawn Ranger's selection of BBQ tools. It could well be the perfect gift.[p]Spring Chicken

    TRex,[p]That's a nice hunk of meat there, TRex. What is it?[p](he asks risking embarassment in this pro-carnivour messageboard).

  • Spring Chicken,
    You have to brand and then cover with foil during the sear. She is already aware of the lawn ranger stuff and was looking for a branding iron.

  • TRex,
    Very impressive! Where's the recipe that goes with this picture?!?!?

  • Eggsellent,
    My wife bought me one at a gift shop when she was in Arizona, I use here and there, it's fun. Maybe I'll ise it on the prime rib we are cooking for the game tonight.

  • Eggsellent,[p]I cannot help you with where to find an iron, but I saw T-Rex's picture of the prime rib branded with JF some time ago. I have a branding iron from the what used to be my family's ranch and thought it would be a lark to brand a lump of meat and roast it in the egg. Then tell my father that it was from his ranch and has the brand marks to prove it. Not that he'd fall for it of course but it would be amusing. One day perhaps (need to clean it up a bit as it has been used)!!!!
