Which cleaning brush?

Postby Chasdev » Wed Dec 09, 2015 2:00 pm

I'm needing a new grilling surface cleaning brush, anybody found the holy grail of brushes, I'm not too fond of plastic handles FWIW..

Thanks! I had my eyeballs on that one, it looks good to go.
I make the mistake of reading up on folks getting bristle wires stuck in their gullets from crappy or worn out brushes shedding wires during cleaning...
Not much fun it seems.

If you have tubular grates the grill stones work good and no bristles to worry about. If you have expanded metal…not so much. They form grooves in the stone on the tubes which helps the cleaning.

My stick burner has expanded metal grate but I use a tiny webber for burgers and steaks which has the round bars, so the stone is also needed..

Weber makes one similar to what Okie posted, I have used a couple that look like that too but the bristles were a little flimsy, the Weber is very sturdy. The key is not to keep any brush too long and your less likely to have the brisltes come off and hurt someone. Next best thing I have ever used is a wire brush from a welding supply, those things last for ever and don't drop bristles.

I get a cheap, long handle wood type - abuse it, leave it out in the rain...ect. Then get mad when it breaks (duh) and start all over again. :whiteflag:

The last one fell apart a couple weeks ago when I was banging it on the side of the grill... :dont:

Guess I need to rethink this....nah. 8)
