If you have a price, I may be as we love a BBQ in the summer!
These are due in the country in a week. So probably two weeks till we physically have them.
Price not worked out yet, depends on the shipping, customs, clearance and VAT costs on what is over 2 tonnes of them. But they will be good value for what they are.
I am quite enthusiastic about the barbie now; so much so, I imported all my skewers, special fish grilles, tons of marinades, oil brushes and all kinds of stuff from Russia (my wife is Russian so child's play for her to search this stuff in Cyrillic), as the stuff in the UK is just total crap and very over-priced compared to what is available out there.
I've used loads of different flat blade skewers over the years. The particular set I got in Russia a couple of years ago knocked spots off all the others. When we went back, we tried to find the seller again, but he had gone. Finding the factory that made them proved equally fruitless (probably just some little engineering shop)
Why I had them re-made to proper spec. Even down to having them use a spectrometer on the metal so we got the right grade as the originals I have cooked with. The factory suggested they were over-engineered, too heavy and too thick for domestic use. We could save money by making them thinner and out of lesser metal and have a lower price point they said. But that isnt the point at all; the point is to make a nice product that people who know about this stuff will look at, nod and say, "nice". And then happily use them forever.
People buy Le Creuset
pans and expensive ceramic knives because they are proper. Anyone who likes a barbie couldn't get proper skewers here before (I tried). So I solved that just before barbie season.
