Grid Cleaner Recommendation

edited 3:53AM in EggHead Forum
I have been using the grid cleaner that came with my small BGE. It's one of those thingys with twin spirals of wire. I found a piece of the wire on a chicken breast the other night. No, I was not trying to clean the chicken with the grid cleaner. ;) I was egging in the dark and did not see the wire after cleaning the grid.[p]I need a recommendation for a new grid cleaner. I would prefer one that does not leave wire behind. :)[p]Thanks,[p]

    BeerMike,[p]Stopped being a 'clean freak' years ago. Usually I either run Mr. Egg up to almost lava temp for 5 minutes or simply wait till the next time I grill and as the fire starts take the wire brush to it. Maybe three times a year I actually take it in and soak it and scrub it. Works just fine. Recently got the new cast iron grill and haven't had a chance to use it yet though.

    <p />Sundown,[p]Nothing like cleaning the grate. Get those temps up and out of control for a great steak and then a cleaning. My cast iron is under the tree. If you saw my previous post, I have no willpower. Bad thoughts keep running threw my head. I'm going to season mine in grape seed oil. Let me know how you like it when you get going and any tips.[p]CWM

    BeerMike,
    I got a Grill Wizard (see link) a few months ago and really like it. Has replaceable stainless scouring pads for the "brush", so you don't throw the whole thing away when they get gunked up, just the cheap pad. I got it based on Cooks Illustrated magazine ranking it their favorite in their testing, and it is living up to expectations for me.
