I need a fish flipper

Thinking about trying my hand at fish on the BGE, especially salmon. Before I do, I reckon I need to invest in a fish flipper. Anyone got recommendations on a good one?

    I use a long restaurant style spatula.

    Hey Bob, I'm a fan of big spatulas.
    This set is by Weber and is stainless and about 16" long. The big spatula second in from the right is sturdy enough to lift a Boston butt yet has a beveled edge great for flipping the more delicate cooks, I think the blade is 7" wide. It is sold separately and as I recall goes for about $15 but I may be wrong. It also doubles as a pretty good canoe paddle.

    A wide spatula comes in handy for getting a full side off the Egg.... but I never turn salmon, trout, or steelhead fillets when cooking, all my goodies would fall off. Oh wait a second.... when I fry it I do.

    Happy Trails
