The idea for the Juniper BBQ Scraper came from our desire to offer a safe, locally sourced and produced, option for cleaning bbq grills.
We'd been hearing horror stories about people finding wire bristles in their food, getting them caught in their gums, or even worse, ingesting them. These stories prompted us stop using those dangerous bristle brushes but we were never able to find a solution that was locally produced. There were many available options that claimed to be safe but they ether still used bristles, were not grill safe (would damage the grill coating), or were imported.
We decided to use locally sourced juniper to create a solution that's safe to use, 100% natural, and is produced in Canada.
How It's Made
Every Juniper BBQ Scraper is hand-crafted from start to finish. The process begins with select harvested juniper (tamarack) from a sustainable forest. We work with local harvesters to identify and harvest small batches of juniper.
These juniper logs are then milled and kiln dried.
We then cut it to length, taking time to ensure the individual pieces meet our quality standards.
There is magic in the next few steps so we'll skip to the end. Every step requires the skilled hands of our team. No CNC routers, shapers, or robots are used. Once each scraper is shaped and hand sanded it receives our stamp of approval.
Next we finish each Juniper BBQ Scraper with high grade cutting board oil to draw out the grain and help protect the wood. We use 100% food grade, all natural Clark's Cutting Board Oil.
The last step is to add the product tag and give the scraper a final inspection ensuring it's the best we can produce. This step is a family event involving my amazing wife Jackie, Mom, Dad, my sister, aunts, uncles, and sometimes the Top Dog, Kristal the golden retriever.
When the entire process is complete, we package and ship the finished product to local retailers and customers around the world.
