This is an 18 in barbecue turner hand forged out of a railroad spike. Primarily for meats but works well with most foods cooked on the barbecue. 18 inches is a good length for cooking on all fuels; wood, charcoal, and propane.
It has a natural bee's wax finish to help protect the metal. Natural bees wax is the traditional way to protect forged metal. It is non-toxic and tasteless and will melt off through the cooking process. However if you wish you can heat the turner, careful not to heat it up to much bees wax has a low melting point, and wipe it with a clean rag or paper towel.
Care for it as you would a cast iron pot or skillet and oil it with vegetable oil to prevent rusting.
