I've been reading a lot of people are getting injured from wire brushes used to clean grills. I'm going to start using iron skillet.

$30 bucks for a hunk of wood?

Utensils of all kinds are overpriced commodities. It was just an option to clean your grill. I picked one up at Costco for $14.99.

There is a unique flavor gained from a skillet. I was just thinking this as I stopped in a small burger joint on the beach yesterday.

I totally forgot to buy one. I had one somewhere and now it just disappeared. Crazy how shit disappears. And the funny thing, I don't even know where it even came from.

Fresh basil and a red onion are the key toppings for me. Try it. You won't regret it

I don't know how many actual injuries there have been, but it does concern me and i have quit using the classic wire brush. There are a number of alternatives out there. I doubt any of them offer you the speed and efficiency of a wire brush but I am content to go a bit slower and work a bit harder to clean the grill.

If you are lucky enough to be near a Sprouts Farmers Market, they sell ground elk and ground venison for a little less than $10/pound. To me at least, it's a noticeable improvement over ground beef.

I was not too crazy about the wild boar and I don't eat veal :|
