    We have been warned about the dangers of BBQ brushes ,with the wire bristles getting stuck in peoples throats and causing allot of harm. I threw mine out and just use a nylon scrubby that worked well enough. Has anyone else gotten rid of this hazard ? please do if you have not yet.

    Ours has been gone for ages as we use a stone to clean our grill. My hubby's aunt spent 12 hours at the hospital last weekend getting a piece of wire from a wire grill brush removed from her throat after eating a hamburger.

    o.k. I had never even knew about this danger but tbh, we don't really use our BBQ much at all. That being said I will make sure that I toss out our brush and tell DH about this danger. ty for posting @bluerose

    The lady who recently had her son in the ER is from my town. Saw it on the news. I now don't use mine and I tried the Gordon Ramsay Onion and lemon thing, seemed to work. As long as you keep your grill going after cooking for a few minutes and cleaning it after instead of letting the bits stick on like i was, it's easy to remove with onion,lemon or even oil and a cloth.
