    Grill Cleaner or best way

    I'm wondering what everyone uses to clean their BBQ grill. I've been getting the grill up to 500 degrees after BBQng and then just brushing with a wire brush the grills. I know there are a lot of different ways and different brushes everyone uses, I'd sure would like to know what every one uses and the best ways are.
    Right now I have the stainless steel grills, but also some PC grills.

    I do it the same way as you. Have done it that way for years with excellent results. Often will also give the grates a quick brushing after bringing the grill up to temp for a cook.

    Your method is an excellent, quick method of cleaning the grates. I used that method until I let the scare of a stray wire worry me, which I mostly ignored until I replaced what I thought I had been using was a high-end brush and it shed like a cat. So now I use the Char-broil nylon brush (red tips, replaceable head), which means I need to clean grates after dinner when they are cooler to the touch. It's effective but not as much so as the burn-off, wire method.

    I occasionally see some fancy looking BBQ wire brushes, just wondering if any are better then others . Or just a regular old wire brush

    IF you have stainless steel wire rod grates, you will not find a better tool than the Chargon grate cleaner. It by far will beat out brushes, pads, and other tools for cleaning your grates. Plus, it is so quick and simple. It seems like a cheap gimick, but I have used many other tools and this by far is the best. But, it won't work well for Cast Iron or stamped steel grates.

    I have seen those and wondered how well they would work.

    Wow Tim, that looks pretty heavy duty!
    How long have you used it and how well is it holding up?
    I’ve been using a Billy Bar and like it a lot but, like the rest of us here, still looking for improved designs.

    I just got it so only used it twice ( rib-eye roast) and after a rib cook today I'll give a better review. It's a wide as the Weber triangle brush so it does about 10 rods on the WSM or kettle with one pass.
    It doesn't clog up as fast because of the three rows and really powers thru the gunk.
    My Son bought it for me because of the solid reviews /warranty so we'll see..

    I use a wooden one where you burn the edge with the grill bars to form the grooves. works ok, if its really bad, Ill clean it with oven cleaner, works better if you put the grill into a garbage bag after spraying so it doesnt dry out too fast, then just hose it off.
