I was at a friend’s place for a BBQ a while back and noticed he was using utensils made out of his own hockey sticks (he plays in the show). He thought the set was awesome and told me that a bunch of the guys on his team had them made up.....
In the typical small world of hockey, my brother Dustin knows Josh Lutz, who runs Hat Trick BBQ Canada and he got me my very own set. I have been putting them to the test all summer, and here is what I discovered:
- Quality Craftsmanship- They are well constructed, aren't going to fall apart or break, and they function like a quality BBQ set (in other words you'll actually want to BBQ with these bad boys)
- Cool Handles -One of my original concerns was that the stick handles might get hot when close to the grip. The composition of the composite stick doesn't heat up like metal so the sticks serve as good handles
- Great Gifts - In every conversation that I had all summer, someone mentioned, “hey these would make for a great gift!” (Christmas is just around the corner, folks!)
- GO GREEN- A lot of folks recognized that this is a green initiative and really liked that part of it as well. To date, Hat Trick BBQ has re-purposed over 23,000 hockey sticks that would otherwise be headed to landfills
Overall I was really impressed...enough so to start partnering with Hat Trick BBQ Canada!
I was going help build the sets myself but I think it’s best if I 'stick' (knee slap) to doing what I do best. Instead, my partnership with Hat Trick BBQ Canada will enable you guys (my customers) to get a BBQ set for a cheaper rate and no added shipping costs the next time you order a stick off of me. That way everyone wins.
