Big Head Spatula
My old grill spatula was getting loose and wasn’t long enough for the tasks I was now performing, so Idecided I needed a new one. I went to the local hardware store to see the available models. One thatcaught my eye was the Big Head Spatula from Charcoal Companion’s line of grill tools.A couple of things stood out immediately. First, the large 5″ square spatula head. Next, it was longer than my old model and felt very sturdy in my hand and finally the Rosewood handle was attractive.Once I got it – actually I bought two – I began to use it in my regular grilling. I loved it right away. Thelength allowed me to keep my hand and arms safely away from the searing heat of the grill. The widehead and sturdy construction made turning food, even large steaks, feel easy.Why did I buy two of them? I own a great grill tool called the Kettle Pizzawhich turns a Weber
charcoal grill into a blazing hot wood fire pizza oven. One thing you need to do when using the KettlePizza is rotate the pizza during cooking to prevent the side closest to the fire from over cooking. KettlePizza makes a tool to help do this, but I wanted something that could serve two purposes; enter the BigHead Spatulas from Charcoal Companion.The length and angle of the head make these spatulas perfect for rotating the pizza without lifting thedomed lid of the grill.
