Default Pig Tail Barbecue Tool

Has anyone tried the Pig Tail food flipper? If so, what is your opinion
of it? http://store.houseoffireonline.com/pigtail.html

I have always used tongs, so as to not pierce the meat crust and release
juice. This is supposedly a fine point and hard enough that it won't
bend. Any thoughts?

I got one for Christmas a few years ago and it's still unopened. Can't
figure out why I wouldn't use tongs, so why use the thing at all?

I use both. Once you get the technique, it's faster than tongs for things
like rib slabs, steaks and such.

It works great. Especially on a crowded grill.

Our daughter gave her dad a Pampered Chef spatula that is rigid and
about 9 or 10 inches wide. It is great for huge briskets and butt
roasts. Sure has made life easier for DH. I can't find it on their
website, but it is sure a good tool. Built like a brick outhouse!!

Thanks to all for the comments and advice. I've decided that since I
cook in small quantities, the spatula and tongs that I've used for the
past hundred or so years will suffice. If I was cooking large
quantities of steaks or ribs, it might speed things up a tad, but for us
little guys, it's not worth the additional clutter on the shelf.

I have one I bought at Walmart for a lot less then they are asking for
theirs. I use mine quite a bit, steaks, chops, ribs and also I have a
Brinkman grill with the side smoker box and it has 3 top grates. I use it to
move the grates on and off too.

That sounds like a good use for me. My current tool (nail puller) is
getting old from exposure.

Those things are great for turning wings. You can turn 100 wings in about a
minute and a half with a pig tailer.

I received mine as a Christmas gift last year. I like it--it works really well
on half a chicken or ribs. Turning over steaks when I'm grilling is easy, too.

Except I have a tendency to snag either myself or my clothes with that very very
sharp point from time to time. 8-0

For briskets and large pork shoulders I use neoprene gloves.
