    Panhead John Yup, definitely the manufacturer's fault! No disclaimer on the handle? Their fault! No legal release form in multiple languages? Definitely their fault! No common sense video training link? Their fault!!!! Jacoby & Meyers (or ambulance chasers of your choice). They have operators standing by for your call!


      I went to this mini canoe paddle piece junk because of the metal sliver thing.
      Wast of money, it does clean the grills
      but it’s triple the work of a wire brush.
      Someone mentioned tin foil earlier....my preferred method now. Kinda hard on the knuckle hair but the grills are clean

        Two likes for the audio on that video. I bet everyone has been there, said that!

          My first choice of words was not …sh!t…Knowing I was gonna post it, and not wanting to get banned, I decided against MF. 😂

        I was just about to post this! Been using mine for several years and aside from working grate (pun) I love the peace of mind knowing no one I feed will end up with a bristle issue

          I really like the durability and that I can easily clean even the sides and bottom of each bar of the grate without flipping it over

        I do not own this, but I do think it looks like a good brush - https://store.grillagrills.com/products/grill-brush


          I tried a palmyra brush, and the instructions were specifically not to use it over live fire or on very hot grates.

          Always read the directions.

            There were no directions or special instructions. Just a price tag. For an everyday, normal looking grill brush, who would have thought that anyway. Not many I’m assuming.

            That’s on the manufacturer or the marketer.

          So let me get this straight, brushing could cause a spontaneous fire in my mouth? Yikes.....

            yes, especially after spicy food!!!!

          Maybe combustible bristles are their way of ensuring you don't have any end up in your food?

          I'll steer clear. I've not bought a grill brush in many years. Between a coiled wire one that lasts and lasts, and a virtually indestructible stainless welding brush, scotch brite pads and brillo pads, I seem to get them clean enough.

          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.
