More highlights from the 2011 HPBExpo in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Lighting Nuggets, Inc. – www.LightningNuggets.com
An impressive selection of non-toxic environmentally safe fire-starters. Made in the U.S.A. since 1979, they know a lot about lighting fires. Lightning Nuggets are made from “Food grade parafin” and “Shredded Pine”, compressed into convenient nuggets about the size of half an Ice Cream scoop. One nugget can produce an 8″ flame, 480 degrees of heat and boil water!
These nuggets leave no ash when consumed. Lightning Nuggets have been on the market for 34years and are they are proud to say their company has been “Green forever”. You can purchase Lightning Nuggets in quantities from 1 to 350 or in a nicely packaged gift basket for that camper on your shopping list.
Grill Pillow – www.GrillPillow.com
This is also the exact reason that the Grill Pillow came into creation. Having loaded up a BBQ in the back of a truck, then having all of a full grease tray dump in the back of his truck, Grill Pillow creator Scott Swarm decided to take away from a commercial application he was using for grease absorbtion and create the Grill Pillow. The Grill pillow is made from biodegradable materials, designed in environmentally friendly disposable pads that absorbs grease. Just place the Grill Pillow in your BBQ’s grease tray, use till it’s full and toss! Also has a handle for lifting. The Grill Pillow comes in two sizes with more sizes on the way.
Pig Tail Flipper – www.PigTailFlipper.com
Need something to flip that big ol’steak with but don’t want to poke it full of holes? Pig Tail Flipper to the rescue! It’s sort of a fishing gaff-dental pick-must have food flipper for the griller in the family. Made from surgical rolled stainless steel with a wicked pig tail hook at the end and a lifetime warrenty, this will stick and flip anything you can throw on the grill. Owner Paul Eichen gave me a quick demonstration of the Pig Tail Flipper and I can tell you it will flip anything on the grill from ribs to hot dogs, steak or chicken, vegetables or fruits with no fuss or mess. You can purchase this neat tool in 2 sizes, 12″ or 19″ right or left hand versions packaged in individual units, a two pack, or a really nice set of two sizes in a solid wood gift box. Prices range from $12.95 to $34.95.
Looft Industries – www.LooftUSA.com
I had the great pleasure to meet the inventor of the new Looft Lighter charcoal and wood lighter, Richard Looft at the show. He was demonstrating the new Looft Lighter to everyone who stopped at the booth.
The Looft Lighter is a Scandinavian invention that is sure to change the way you light your charcoal and wood fires. The idea came about from frustration, a toaster and a vacuum. I kid you not! This is one cool invention. Just plug it in, place the end of the unit into your charcoal and turn it on. Your cooking fire will be ready in just minutes.
Looft lighter is being sold as a BBQ and fire place lighter in all of Scandinavia, more than ten countries in Europe and has also been introduced in the USA. You can find this at many retailers across the U.S.A.
That all for this round! Many more product updates in the next week.
