Here are a couple meat or steak turning tools i made in the shop yesterday.One is left handed for me,the other right handed in case the wife needs to flip.(the best case senerio is that this will never happen!!) ;)

    Nice looking tools. I'm sure you know by now but you can make some change making those things. Have a good day.

    Those are beautiful! I would love to purchase a left handed and a right handed one in the longer one. I saw quite a few BBQ teams at the Royal using this type of tool for flipping. Please let me know.

    those are pretty but most of us don't have a shop at our finger-tips.

    So a set of pig tails will have to do.

    They are nice, but tongs are much better. Poking holes in the meat just gives another place for the juices to run out.

  • Don't let them get you down. I have the pigtail and use it often. That being said I would buy one of yours in a heartbeat. If you decide to make and sell them I'll take one or two or....

    Gotta have tough skin around this place much of the time. Personally I don't care for that type tool, but I applaud you for your effort and craftsmanship. If you like it, that's all that matters.
    I look forward to seeing more posts from you.
