BBQ Brush question, Bristles or Brushy Thing

Want to get a new BBQ Brush, I see they have the style I have used all my life, with the bristles, Apparently from reading, these can come loose, and be on the grill. So should I get one of those types of brushes that have a mesh type brush at the end of the handle?

I use the steel (or bronze) bristle brushes and then wipe with a wet paper towel that I bunch up.

Following a recommendation on Cooks' Illustrated, I bought one of these and have been very happy with it.

I heat up the grill, scrub it with the scrubber, then use an olive oil soaked paper towel held in a pair of tongs to wipe it down afterwards. Then grill.

Sorry, earlier I thought you meant to add sauce to meat as it cooked, now I see you meant cleaning the grill. For years I've used these from Walmart ($11.50 at mine)

I just quickly wipe the grate with it immediately after removing the meat. Nothing had time to solidify and comes off easily. If I wait until my next time grilling - then I have to scrub hard. So clean immediately after use.

I use the bristle brush, and then less often the glass particle block. Always wad of paper towel and canola oil to finish.

Legend has it that, my neighbor's, cousin's, second grade teacher's, mailman's, son's, soccer coach bit into a bristle left behind from an old bristle grill brush.

But seriously, maybe I'm in the minority here, but aside from reading about it online which is then immediately followed by a "recommendation" to purchase a product, I've never heard of anyone experiencing this "in real life."

I use a bristle brush, then wipe down with some peanut oil on a paper towel.
