I was just watching the Today Show and there was a great segment on getting ready to fire up your grill this year. There was a piece of safety information that host, Sunny Anderson really emphasized. Never use a wire brush to clean your grill top. I believe it is important enough to pass it on here. We had my son and his family over a few years ago for some Pork Chops on the grill and I had brushed the grill with one of those wire brushes and then followed it up with an oiled cloth to get it clean. A tiny piece of wire from that brush broke off and lodged in the grate of the grill. When I put the pork chops on the grill the wire then became dislodged and went into the Pork Chop. My son Darrel ate the chop and that tiny piece of wire became lodged in his throat. It was a very scary issue for him and the family that night. It did require a trip to the ER where they took an X-ray and then removed it. Bottom line….. do not use those cheap wire brushes.
