The BBQ Scraper is 100 percent natural, and no plastic or chemicals will ever touch your grill. We decided not to sacrifice when it came to the environment. The BBQ Scraper is manufactured by local woodworkers using locally harvested sustainable forests, giving it the lowest carbon footprint possible and making it extremely environmentally friendly. The BBQ Scraper is safe for you, your loved ones and your grill. No metal bristles are used, so you can’t get any stuck in your mouth, throat or stomach. The BBQ Scraper is made from birch hardwood, making the grill cleaner not only durable enough to last for many years, but it will never scratch even the most delicate porcelain coated grills. Being good for the environment and safe to use are irrelevant if the BBQ Scraper doesn’t do its job and clean your grill. As you use the scraper, customized grooves that match your exact grill’s grate pattern are burned into the wood. This makes it the perfect cleaning tool for your unique grill.
