Checking out The SKrAPr GrILLr, Plus a Contest

Sometime back, I started hearing about this new BBQ & grill cleaning tool on Twitter.  Not too long after, Annette Penney — director of social media marketing for The SKrAPr — contacted me and asked if I would be interested in trying out this tool.  I’m always looking to try out new tools and gadgets, so how could I refuse?  So ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The SKrAPr GrILLr!

The SKrAPr GrILLr

The SKrAPr GrILLr

The BBQ tool is about 8 1/2 inches long from the handle to the farthest tip of the blade.  The blade itself is just over 2 inches long, and as you can see, each side of the blade is notched with one side of the blade coming to a hard point.  The package also came with a GrILLr Jr., a minature all-metal version of the tool that is sized to fit on a keychain.

I can hear some people asking, “Why should I replace my grill brush with this?”  And the answer is, you shouldn’t.  This tool is not meant to replace your grill brush.  It’s intended to complement the grill brush by giving you a durable blade to help remove that crud from your grill grates that is insanely hard to remove.  As you can see in the pictures below, the notched sides come in really handy when cleaning those tight spots.

The result that I found in using this tool is that it’s a great supplement to a grill brush.  The notched edges really allowed me to get in the nooks and crannies of the grill.  One thing that I will note is that the tool is meant to be used on a cold grill.

The website for The SKrAPr line of products is http://www.theskrapr.com.  You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.  A huge thank you goes to Annette Penney for reaching out to me and asking me to try out this tool.

Like this product so far?  I have an extra GrILLr that I will be giving away!  Just leave me a comment below.  You can tell me why you deserve to win this prize, you can tell me a funny joke…  heck, you can even beg!  I’ll pick a winner at random.  Contest ends Saturday at 11:59pm EST.

Quick Contest: Free Dimples BBQ Sauce

This is a quick “post and run” blog post while I’m on my lunch break.  I just came across a great contest while browsing Facebook courtesy of Dimple’s BBQ Sauce.
