    New Grill Brush Design

    Max Good maybe you could give this a review. Looks promising.


    Just saw a story today on my local news about a lady having to have emergency surgery to remove a brass bristle from her intestine. Ouch! I too would like to see a review on this new brush.



      Looks pretty cool - Why didn't I think of that??


        @Dr ROK,I'm not sure I would want to use it! They say it's made of GALVENIZED STEEL in the comments after video per Zaven from brush tech .
        Who would use galvanize steel for a food related product?

        @David the springs are made of galvanized steel, they work on cast iron, porcelain, and stainless steel grills. It should work fine on your Weber!"

          Thanks for the heads up on the brush being made of galvanized steel. I placed an order on Amazon for it yesterday for when they are back in stock. I promptly cancelled the order this morning. I guess I better start paying more attention to all the details.

          oldsteve It is not described very well, and after reading comments it looks like they were gouging on shipping also but i'm sure its different through Amazon.

        I like the design, but galvanized is toxic. I have asked Dr. Blonder for his thoughts.

          Blonder says "Two problems. Zinc coatings are soft and will rub off, and the high heat of the grill will vaporize the zinc. Should be made from stainless, dummies."

        What Meathead says. Plus I wonder how effectively it cleans below the grill surface. Furthermore, I use brass bristle brushes with wood handles and I never had a problem with stray bristles breaking off.


          If you have a large laundry tub just soak your grills in hot water and dish washing detergent for a while - that's what i do. Then scrub them with stainless steelos ( stainless steel wool ) and rinse well. Do not use steelos on chrome plated grills it takes the plating off real quick. Instead use non scratch dishwashing scourer pads and work a bit harder. I have also used brass bristle brushes and wiped with wet paper towels with great results. And yes they should've used stainless - in the comments there was a quote saying the brush will last for years???? Not if it's galvanized .. LOL


            To clean my grates, I bought a $12 hot water heater drain pan at Home Depot. I cut the corner off of a freezer bag to block the hole. I fill up a large pot with water, and bring to almost a boil. I place my grates in the drain pan (can get 4 when stacked) and dump the hot water on top. I put some Dawn in first. Cuts the grease with no issues. After soaking overnight, I use a scotch scouring pad and not much elbow grease at all. Grates come very clean.

            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
