Recommendation on Bristle Free BBQ Brush?

Hi

i want to get new bbq brush but after hearing about the bristle brushes losing their bristles and causing people to go to the hospital I decided that even though it probably rare it happens I rather just get one that does not have bristles.

I found a few but not sure what is good or not

Home Depot (not 100% sure if this is bristle free)

Amazon.ca

wood kind.

Any suggestions?

The one from HD has wire bristles, so it's out.
The first one from amazon just has bigger wires, so less risk but I'm not sure it's stiff enough to work well.
The last one should work, but you can make your own for free with an off cut of cedar board. Should be in the scraps from the cutting area at HD. You just need a 1 to 1.5 foot length of 6in cedar board. You don't really need a handle, but you could cut one out if you wanted it.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

I have been using cedar boards for making cedar plant salmon for years. They come in packs of 5 or 10 for dirt cheap. I use them for a few months and throw away. I do use the hard scraping part of my bristle brush still though.

Canada, Eh!!
Costco has wooden brushes for $10
2022: BOC raised 8 times and MCAP raised its prime next day.
2017 to 2018: BOC raised rates 5 times and MCAP raised its prime next day each time.
2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited to drop its prime to include all 3 drops.

I use thermal gloves and a steel scouring pad. I did notice today that the pad is starting to fall apart, so will probably switch to cedar boards.

My wife gets me to cut lengths of hardwood for our plank grilling needs. She isn't crazy about the flavour that cedar imparts. Given that I have a very sizable stockpile of 1" thick ash planks, this works out for us.

On the grill cleaning side, we use something like this Grill Hog Cedar BBQ Grill Scraper. I may make the next one out of some of that ash I have...

I believe they use cedar for these cleaning planks because it is a softer wood and over time the wood contours to the bbq grate design and spacing. I'm not sure how well hardwood would conform to your grates.

How much do they cost? I tried to go to "where to buy" but the online stores just return all of there products.

Still thinkig about this metal one or that grill stone, just don't know how long the grill store lasts. I hear that it starts to break apart pretty fast.
