    Stainless Steel Cooking grates for the Q grills

    ...The grates did well as expected but nothing spectacular. I thought clean up between cooks would be a pain also (because I didn't bring my Chargon) but it's not too bad, all I did was wet a paper towel and washed the grates off while still hot and that did the trick. I purchased the grates for...

    Best way to clean SS grates

    If you are worried about the underside of the SS Rod grates, you can always flip them over to get the bottoms. The Chargon alone will get the top and sides.

    We have a million of these at work. It did a nice job where the chargon just couldn’t get to.

    The thing about the chargon is that it works best on grates that don't have the center cross bar, like RCP grates. It still works on the others, but not as conveniently.

    Prior to this thread, I never heard of the "chargon" needless to say I just ordered one!

    Best way to clean SS grates

    There's definitely a bit of a learning curve with the chargon. The first couple of times I used it I thought it was way too slow to clean the grates one a time. Then I actually timed it and found it took me 60 to 90 seconds to clean my genesis grates. I quickly decided I can spare that amount...

    Can you post a picture of a "pencil reamer" please? Thanks

    Hahah I had much better luck with the chargon today. Not sure why i had such a hard time with it the first go round.

    ...it is an excellent brush. I use it mostly to back up my wood scraper for my cast iron grates, but sometimes on stainless rods. To me, the Chargon is still the way to go with stainless rods. (Sorry you don’t see it that way, Bruno 😄!) For GrillGrates, I personally prefer the wood scraper...

    ...that looks brand new. Here’s what it took! An hour of hard work!! I sprayed with citrusafe, used a stainless wire wheel brush in a drill, a chargon which I now have more respect for and the key was a pencil reamer we use to ream copper pipe. It got in all the nooks and crannies! Burning both...

    If the chargon didn't work so well this is what I would use.

    ...off, however after using these for years I have never seen a bristle come off. I get them for $9 and S&F so I swap them out often. I’ll give my chargon another try I had high hopes when I bought it. Those Libman’s are really great on CI grates. They’ve kept the 320 looking good for a long time.

    Best way to clean SS grates

    No offense taken. Works better than any brush for me but to each his own. But even if it was less effective i wouldn't go back to using a brush. I work in healthcare and I've seen firsthand what loose grill brush bristles can do to the human GI tract. It may be a smaller risk with a higher...

    Bruno - Don't sugar coat it. Tell us how you really feel;-) That Libman doesn't seem to have a scraper?

    Best way to clean SS grates

    No offense I think the chargon sucks!! If you aren’t using a brass Libman you are missing out. I buy one every visit to smart and final, I would not want to ever be without these. I started with the Weber long handle and once I found these I was hooked. EDIT: just used the chargon on a...

    I too will have to give that Chargon Tool a try. Looks promising.

    Great info everyone — thanks for your thoughts. Chargon looks interesting; I may give it a try. Happy grilling to all!

    Best way to clean SS grates

    ...has them. 20 bucks. Dirt cheap when you consider it's a lifetime tool rather than annual replacement like a brush. I tried the billy bar but for me the chargon worked much better. The chargon shape just fit the round grates much better and cleaned more thoroughly and quicker than the billy bar.

    Best way to clean SS grates

    Several of us use the chargon tool. It's all I've used for several years. It takes slightly longer than a brush. But still only takes a couple of minutes. It's safer than any brush. It lasts practically forever (unlike a brush). It's much more hygienic and easy to clean than a brush. AND once...
