  • Take your old BBQ tongs and remove them from their original handles. Cut an old composite hockey stick to your desired handle length. We cut ours to 9 inches. Sand any rough edges.
  • Drill a small hole in one end and attach a skate lace to use as a hanger.
  • Inject PL Premium constructive adhesive into the stick and fill the remaining gap with styrofoam or wood to hold the utensil in place. 
  • Let dry overnight, and be sure to wipe off any excess adhesive before grilling.
  • Don’t forget to celly.
