Thanks for all of your comments and suggestions. They are appreciated.

I was going to pass on it anyway, but in spite of my never being 100% wrong, I may have stretched my luck to buy one.

As for brushes, I use brushes, but I brush immediately after my cook while the grid is still hot. Then I wipe it down with paper towels, followed by a spraying of spray cooking oil, followed by a final paper towel wipe down. I've looked closely and have never found a spoke from the brush. I'm not saying it's safe, but it is practical.

I also wipe the grid down again before the next time I use it.

I did try the foil wipe down and found that it didn't do a good job of getting down between the grid bars.

When I do a hot cook, I usually follow with a clean burn of the Egg and the grids. Before the grids cool completely I brush them thoroughly and oil them good with oil saturated paper towels. If they are really skuzzy, I will place them in my deep utility sink with Dawn dish soap. That usually works well. If they are really bad I spray them with oven cleaner and let them soak overnight. Then I do another brush down/wipe down and scrub. By then they look pretty new. Then I re-oil them and cook something 'rewarding' for my efforts.

And I used to have a rum and coke or four during all that work. Now I might have a half-glass of wine and be satisfied with it.

Old is a hard thing to get used to.

Thanks again everyone.
