    Bought some new BBQ tongs at Big Lots! this afternoon. $3.88


    "Donk's Australian BBQ Tongs". (hey, guess what...made in..where else...China)

    www.platadelmar.com

    They look like a pair of cantilevered scissors with bottle cap-shaped "grabbers" on the end. The flutes on the grabbers are rounded to prevent piercing the meat.

    Evidently the idea is that for every lb. of pressure you put on the handle is translated to 3 lb. of "grab" on the other end.

    That picture of the croc over the grill is hilarious.

    Do they work as advertised? My cousin's son was helping me BBQ a few weeks ago, and he barely had enough strength to pick up a chicken leg with the regular tongs. Damn seven year-olds. :( :( :(
