Brushes, what to look for and what to avoid.

Grilling season is ramping up and you may be getting your grill ready for the first big get together of the year.  There are surely 2 things going through your mind.

Make sure the grill is clean.

AND

Make sure there aren't any left over bristles on the grates from the worn out brush you have been using.

Below we have listed a few options and tips to making sure that you don't end up on the evening news.

- If you want to continue using bristle brushes try to avoid the plastic or wood handle options.  Instead, opt for a brush with the bristles intertwined into the stainless steel handle like the one pictured below.  The grease, water and weather break down the plastic and wood handle brushes and this is when you encounter issues of the bristles falling out.
