About

G'day Folks,

The aim of this project is to get my Patriotic BBQ Tongs off and running.

What better way to show your patriotism and celebrate July 4th than with a pair of Patriotic BBQ Tongs?!

What we have developed are quality, multiple coloured silicon head BBQ tongs: made with FDA approved silicon (the stuff they use in commercial kitchens), these tongs are good to over 500 Fahrenheit!

Stars and Stripes

Not only does the product have the almighty Stars and Stripes, it also boasts silicon hand grips to protect you from getting burnt. The tongs have a handy locking system that's simply “bump’n'open" (great for barbecuing when you have a cold one in the other hand). I've tested the prototypes over a long period of BBQ cooking and washing up and I'm confident when you get your pair of Patriotic Tongs you'll agree that the quality is great.

So far I've spent time and money on 3 iterations; getting from design through to the sampling stage, then to a product that's ready to be put on the market … and that's where I need your help!

The money I raise from this KickStarter campaign will go towards the tooling needed to move into production. For backing me you can own your very own pair of Patriotic BBQ Tongs from the first phase! Even better it should be to you by the 4th of July!

So thanks for taking the time to look over my campaign - I hope you make it part of your campaign this summer too! Happy barbecuing!!

Risks and challenges

Well folks, the samples have been completed and tested (and the testing was delicious, thanks for asking). The most adverse situation I can currently imagine is deadlines. Having the product shipped to you in time... Even though the product is great to use all year round I want you to all have a pair by July 4th.
I've made numerous iterations of the product over nearly two years, to get where it is today. Working on these with a single supplier I'm confident in the production qualities and time frame.
I've lined up the logistics, so, in my opinion, this is the biggest risk. If we get inundated and really over subscribed how will they handle it? Let's crank up the heat and see!
Happy BBQs!!
