Trying to decide which is the best grill brush to buy can be a difficult decision. Especially now that we're in 2017 and there seems to be an almost endless supply of companies selling bbq brushes online. At Pitmaster's Choice, we always try to focus on the premium brands that have been around for the long haul and you can count on them for quality products. 

We did a deep dive analysis of Grill Cleaning Brushes​ on Amazon and have determined that the core differentiators are Handle Length, Durability, Bristle Strength, Cleaning Area, and Overall Score. Overall Score is just our own way of bringing it all together including any other unique positives that weren't necessarily lumped into one of the grading criteria. 

You can check out the table below for a high level analysis of each grill brush we reviewed. If you're interested in a more thorough analysis, we have individual pages dedicated to each barbecue brush.​

Cave Tools Grill Brush

This Cave Tools BBQ brush is made from stainless steel, with a long 18” handle made from resilient heat-resistant plastic. The bristles of the grill brush itself are also stainless steel, making it 100% rust proof. So even if you leave it out in the rain or snow it won’t rust. This particular stainless steel brush is good for cleaning most grills, including Char-Broil and Weber porcelain and infrared grates.

Brinkmann BBQ Brush

The Brinkman long handled bbq brush certainly lives up to it’s name. In this case the brush is over 21” long, half of that being the handle. The handle is made from heat resistant plastic, the brush from steel wire and the bristles from stainless steel. The brush head is over six inches wide, so you can cover a large area in a shorter time.

Overall, the Brinkman grill brush is quite basic, a budget product that does what it’s supposed to with no whistles and bells. I’ve seen it for sale for as low as a few dollars, which makes it almost disposable.

Char-Broil Barbecue Brush

Steel brushes have been in the news lately, over concerns that the bristles can come loose and get in the food and then be swallowed, which can cause all kinds of health issues. If you’re at all concerned about this, switching to a Char-Broil grill brush will help put your mind at ease.

Weber Grill Cleaning Brush

Overall, I’d say the Weber grill brush is a useful addition to your BBQ brush armory, and works well, provided you don’t put too much pressure on the handle or expect to use it to clean an entire grill. Save it for the finishing touches, for cleaning those awkward to reach spots and out of the way places, and use something more substantial for cleaning the main areas.
