Contest: What Is This?

It’s time for a test of just how smart Wild Chef readers are.

Identify the object in the photo above, and give a short explanation of why it would be a good addition to the wild-game cook's kitchen, and you could win another cooking tool that I believe is absolutely essential: an Instant Read Digital Thermometer from Char-Broil.

Post your answer in the comments below by 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time), Sunday, March 15, and I’ll chose the winner at random from all the correct answers.

Good luck. I’m interested in seeing how many of you know what this item, which I desperately would love to own, is.
