What have you guys found to be the best scraper/brush cleaner to clean up your grid?

    Foil works well, but I also like this thing. Cleans top and bottom at the same time.

    It appears to me to be a "V" cut in the end of a rod that was flattened before cutting. I see no way that it can clean the top and bottom at the same time. One side or the other but not both.

    @Mickey you would be wrong. It does a good job.

    @Cen-Tex like it hasn't happened to most of us. You just don't say anything to the company :-$

    Yes - we call it the Puppy PreWash, to keep the vistors happy!

    The best brush is (imo) Grill Wizard - uses scrubbies rather than bristles so easy to replace / less clogging

  • Gotta agree w/ the others who mentioned a ball of aluminum foil... I saw this done YEARS ago by a friend, and have since named the technique the "redneck grill brush"...

    Sure, ya can spend $$ on fancy grill brushes & cleaners - but using aluminum foil to clean the grids, and cranking the Egg up to high heat & baking out the "gunk" are 2 of the best ways I've seen to clean - and they're FREE!!!!!  <:-P
    Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee

    just had a comp over the weekend, egg is looking quite grimy, going to be time for a high temp burn out. Most times I just hit them while they're still warm with a weber grill brush.

    Dang and I have to pay for both my coal and aluminum foil. How do you get yours free??
  • Dang and I have to pay for both my coal and aluminum foil. How do you get yours free??
    hehe... well, I guess "free" was a bit of an EGG-xaggeration... but the $.02 worth of aluminum foil you'd use, plus the $1.00 worth of charcoal is still a lot less than a $10-15 grill brush & some expensive cleaning solution... :D

    I bought one of these for around $5 at a local Farm Supply type store.  The handle came off the first time, but a little glue and its worked fine ever since.  A lot of the commercial brushes with a long handle can't hit the hot grill when its down inside the Egg; this one can.  
    I use my CI grids almost exclusively so I don't need to scrub both the bottom and the top.

    I have my old gas grill brush similar to the above pic. Any counter indication to use that on the stainless steel and cast iron grill?

    Hey, you have to watch all your nickles today.  Cleaning supplies are expensive and they are used to do nasty jobs.  Improvise and save your dinero.  Some of my old tools become grill accessories.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    I tried the aluminum foil and it worked OK but it wasn't what I was looking for so I stopped by the local Egg dealer and picked up one of the Billy Bar cleaners like shown above and they do work great...should've bought one when I bought the Egg.
