What Is The Best BBQ Brush?

What is the best BBQ brush for cleaning those dirty BBQ grills?

I am sure you have found many types of BBQ brushes in your local hardware store, or you have seen many different types of BBQ cleaning brushes at your local home depot. Often you will have to buy two or three different brushes doing two or three different jobs to get those dirty grills clean.

So, what is the best BBQ brush to clean your grill?

There are different versions available on the market; like these ones…

18-inch Stainless Steel Woven Wire BBQ Grill Brush
BBQ Grill Scrubbers
BBQ Stainless Steel Wire Brush Grill Cleaner and Scraper
Electric BBQ Grill Cleaning Brush

The ones above are all doing a good job, but you need two or three different brushes if you need for scouring, scraping and brushing at the same time.

Many of you will ask, so what is the best BBQ Brush out there that can do all three cleaning methods simultaneously?  The Smart BBQ Brush is the newbie on the market that can do just that.

Today I would like to review this new SMART BBQ Brush.

What makes this Smart BBQ brush so unique?

The answer is plain and simple if you compare this brush with some of the other available cleaning brushes.

Today, you won’t need to look any further for that ideal brush that can do three jobs in one, as this brush is definitely, A Smart Brush. This is one of the most versatile grill cleaning tools on the market. The Smart BBQ Brush is ideal to get rid of even the toughest dirt and grease after cooking and grilling on your grill or grate, by using the same tool in applying three different cleaning methods at once.

Product Overview

The Smart BBQ Brush is a premium stainless steel ABS 3 in 1 BBQ toolABS, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, is a thermoplastic resin used in molding. The handle or body section of the brush is fabricated from ABS, which is fairly durable and heat resistant.

The Smart BBQ Brush is a multi-functional brush. It is actually three tools in one: a scouring pad, a tough stainless steel scraper, and a thick brass bristle brush.

It is a durable and highly advanced brush that can clean any type of grill surface with ease. The stainless-steel head can scrape the toughest dirt away. The thick brass bristles will remove dirt on a grill super-fast and easy. The tough scouring pad will easily wipe away oil residue and grease on a grill or cooking grate.

So, this three-tools-in-one BRUSH allows you to clean your grill perfectly with very little effort just by switching the tool side, as you can see in the illustrations below.

Product Specifications

The set of three for USD $ 25.36 on eBay

(Smart BBQ Brush plus a Silicone Heat Glove and a Silicone Basting Brush)

Pros and Cons…


  • This is a great all in one tool for scraping, scouring, and brushing with just a switch in hand.
  • The silicone heat glove and basting brush are helpful bonuses, as a set.
  • Also available as a single unit without the heat glove and basting brush, which is less expensive, very affordable.
  • A 14-inch long handle, smaller head version is available as well.


  • You still need to scrub, scour and scrape by hand.
  • The scouring pad is irreplaceable. How long will the pad last? Hard to say, as the product is new on the market.
  • The silicone heat glove and basting brush are merely add-ons to the sale and not really a bonus.

Because of its unique features, it is considered a smart brush. If you want a convenient three-in-one tool to clean your grill hassle free and quickly by hand, then this Smart BBQ Brush is just the tool to have. The task of cleaning grills has just become easier with this smart three-in-one brush.

Storing the tool away is also easy, as the scraper has holes that make it easy to hang after cleaning.

According to eBay, the Smart BBQ brush is not available in stores. The Smart BBQ Brush is pretty cheap, therefore you can order a couple or more if you think the scouring pad will not last very long in cleaning your grills. The Smart BBQ Brush will make an ideal gift for a BBQ guy!

On the other hand, there are also electrical cleaning brushes available for those who want to use lesser “manual power” when brushing those dirty grills, but most of these brushes cannot be used individually or on their own for three different cleaning methods, whereas the Smart BBQ Brush can.

Alternatively, there is a long handle product available on eBay…

Price: Only USD $2.73

Final Thought…

So, there you have it. I think I have just answered your question; what is the best BBQ brush? In my opinion, the Smart BBQ Brush is very close to a supreme grill cleaning tool. The price is right and it is good value for money!

Scam Free Online Income?

Scam Free Online Income – Avoid scams like Hot coals!

Have you been scammed online?

As you might know, there are thousands of online scams on the internet lately.

So, today I would like to divert from my usual BBQ stuff to discuss a very important topic, scam free online income, and how important that is to the online industry.

So, how do you know what is real and what is a scam online?

Today I want to share with you how I go about identifying and avoiding these online scams!

I am sure you also came across many online programs where you have to pay money to join and then ending up frustrated, disappointed, and penniless after a short while.

Thus, over time, these experiences turned me into a huge skeptic on every make money online program I came across on the internet. Well, this was the case BEFORE I discovered the best online program there is.

What I did was to “google search” the make money online program’s name to validate the legitimacy of the advertised program.

I advise you to do the same with the information I am going to provide here.

How do you determine if a make money online program is legit?

You simply enter the name of the program plus scam, “program + scam”, in Google’s search bar and let Google do the search. The Google search result will pop up many reviews and informational sites giving you the precise outcome of what you want to know about a specific online program.

I advise you to read several reviews on different sites about the specific program, as some reviews are actual reviews from the scammers themselves claiming that the program is NOT a scam.

Another Scam Exposed!

I was doing some research online to write this page article, when I, once again, arrived at yet another online scam, and I thought it to be a good example to discuss here.

Now, if you are not good at detecting the signs of a scam, then you will surely fall for THIS one.

Today, I came across a video review of Wealthy Affiliate (WA) on my Google plus account while I was searching for posts about affiliate programs. Wealthy Affiliate is a scam free online program with thousands of like-minded online entrepreneurs.

The person who did the Wealthy Affiliate (WA) review in the video, is praising WA at first BUT later on in the video promoting an alternative make money online program, Online Sales Pro.

He claims further that Online Sales Pro (OSP) is one of the best methods online to make money fast and easy!!

At first, it sounded absolutely legit, but you need to know how to identify the red flags!

This is how he advertised his post on Google plus.

Pick up the Red Flags!

Now when you look closely, you will see that he only has 3 followers (1st red flag),

The name of his post is, “Wealthy Affiliate Review, the biggest scam in history?” Immediately you would like to watch this, won’t you?

You will also notice that he has no google plus likes and no comments on his post (2nd red flag). There is nothing else in the post but a video page and a video link.

When you click on the youtube link, it takes you to a YouTube video where he reviews Wealthy Affiliate. He starts by commending WA and how well the program works, but then he informs you that there is a much better and faster way of making money online.

He then asks you to visit his site, which you can see on the video screen, partnerwithjacob.info (NOTE: This is NOT related to MY name, Jacob)

I am a proud member of a scam free online income program, which I can recommend to anyone who wants to earn an income the correct way.

So, once you arrive on the partnerwithjacob.info web page; you are then prompted to watch another video about a troubled soul who rebuilt his life…immediately triggering your emotions because the video is about someone who struggled in life and then suddenly made 11000 USD with this “outstanding” program, overnight!! (3rd red flag).

At the bottom of the OSP sign-up page, you can then read all the details on how it works.

Online Sales Pro is not free to join. The startup fee is $37 pm with options to upgrade (4th red flag).

One of the 1st things indicating on the information page is how much money you can make with OSP (5th red flag).

The rest of the landing page looks very impressive and it offers a 30-day money back guaranty. So far most of the information on the OSP landing page looks legit to the untrained eye. This can trap you to join instantly.

Notice The Red Flags!!

Picking up on all the red flags I spotted so far, I thought it well to do what I always do, doing a “scam search” on Google, “Online Sales Pro+ scam”.

Not to my surprise, I came across several website reviews exposing the Online Sales Pro scam!! …….BOOOM!! My suspicion was confirmed.

Another scam BUSTED!!

Feel free to do your own online search and read all the details on the scam busting websites, providing the proof and details about OSP, or any other program you think might be too good to be true!

Is Online Sales Pro a scam? YES, and so are many others!

So, this is proving once again that you can only trust online programs with a ZERO scamming record.

One more tip…

If something is promoted with glamorous videos or images of how luxurious your life will be when you will be using this program, and how much money you will be making in a short period of time, then it is usually “TOO GOOD to be TRUE”, and most likely, a SCAM!

Making money online is hard work and it takes a lot of time and effort to be successful online.

Are there ANY Programs that are NOT scams?

I can say with confidence, YES there are! Wealthy Affiliate is one of them!

Wealthy Affiliate is a proven trustworthy platform that supports you to earn a scam free online income from anyplace in the world.

WA is the platform that helped me and thousands of other WA members to do just that!

Wealthy Affiliate allowed me to start up my own online business in the RIGHT way with a ZERO startup fee.

 What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate is the Only Platform in the World where you can Achieve an Online Education in Online Entrepreneurship, Build a Passionate Business, Interact with like-minded people, and having access to every Technique and Tool you need to be Successful as an Online Entrepreneur.

How does Wealthy Affiliate work?

In short

Step 1

Step 2

Gas Grill vs Charcoal Grill

Gas Grill vs charcoal grill – Chicken or egg?

What do you prefer, charcoal or a gas grill?

ZAR freestand bbc

A Gas Grill. Photo by, PIXNIO

There are numerous discussions and heated debates among BBQ gurus about the gas grill vs charcoal grill topic. This debate will continue for as long as there will be BBQ enthusiasts on this planet.

Today, I would like to highlight this matter by summarizing the main points about what had been said by the BBQ gurus out there, and my own thoughts on the topic, too.

Many of the online BBQ purists will provide long scientific explanations on this topic. That is all good and well. I understand that it should be explained in such a way that all facts are laid on the grill describing the scientific technicalities of grills and grilling in detail.

BBQ specialists, Meathead Goldwyn and the like, who are studying the finer specifics of grilling and grills are experts in the field of grilling, and I absolutely give them credit for it.

We learn a lot from these gurus, but it can take hours to read through all the scientific explanations on what is actually better, charcoal or a gas grill, which is perfectly okay for those who want to know the specifics in finer details.

It is important to learn the ins and outs of BBQ grills, but in so many cases, most of us are merely wanting to have barbecues with our friends and family and some aren’t bothered by the scientific facts of grills.

We just want to barbecue!

Barbecue lovers, like myself, are not always interested in the scientific facts, we just want to barbecue. So, my point is, if you want to read up on ALL the scientific facts of why charcoal is better than gas or vice versa, then these blog sites where the BBQ gurus are explaining everything in absolute detail, will be a good read for you.

Today, I will provide you with a short and easy review on this matter without all the scientific jargon. The way I see it, and so many of my BBQ friends, too. Then you can decide whether you want to use a charcoal or a gas grill, or maybe both!

Gas vs charcoal…

This comparison, gas grill vs charcoal grill, is my unbiased impression in a very easy format by simply listing the pros and cons of both.

BBQ terms glossary…

But first, I want to give you the definitions, a simple Google explanation, of some BBQ terms that might be useful if you are a beginner or not so familiar with barbecue terms:

*Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) / Propane,
Is used for fuel heating our homes, to cook with, to fuel vehicles, for hot water, or for grilling food.

Is carbon or man-made char and it is produced by slowly heating wood in the absence of oxygen, half burned wood.

Is the process where you cook, for example, steak, on high heat until the surface is caramelized.

Is flavoring or slow cooking meat by using the smoke of smoldering wood or charcoal.

*A chimney,
Is a tool that you use in starting charcoal to start coals fast and easy.

Is a cooking appliance with a rotating spit for roasting or barbecuing meat.

Now, to summarize our topic…gas grill vs charcoal grill.
The PROS and the CONS

Charcoal Grills

  • You have the open fire providing a great socializing atmosphere and ambiance.
  • You surely get an intense smoky flavor to your grilled food.
  • Coals create direct intense heat, which is good for searing steak or lamb chops, that crispiness is tasteful.
  • Charcoal grills are generally less expensive than gas grills.
  • Charcoal is easily portable to a picnic spot or beach.

  • You need to light the coals with a type of starter (lighter fluid or a chimney).
  • It is not easy to control the heat and flames on a charcoal grill. This takes practice.
  • The coals must be added if you have plenty of meat to grill and you run low on heat.
  • Grease on the grill grates and ash must be cleaned after barbecuing.
  • Charcoal grilling is Not as convenient as gas grilling.
  • Charcoal requires more time and attention to prepare.
  • It could be difficult to control the temperate while grilling and you must remove or add coals to get it right. This takes practice, too.
  • Dripping of fat can cause flare-ups which can be difficult to control and it can burn the food. A water spray bottle is always handy to keep small flare-ups under control.
  • Coals can cause sparks around the grill and that can be a risk of fire.
  • Coals are dirty to handle.
  • Few charcoal grills have rotisserie sets.

Gas Grills

  • Gas provides even and consistent heat.
  • Gas can be easily turned on and controlled by just turning a knob.
  • Propane gas can fuel very long, around 20 hours.
  • Very little grease to clean and NO ash cleaning
  • Grilling is not messy. It is quick. No messing with charcoal and waiting for the coals to be ready for grilling. It is convenient.
  • The cooking zone is easy to clean.
  • Most gas grills come with rotisserie sets.

  • Gas grills are more expensive than charcoal grills.
  • Gas/propane is more expensive too and is linked to the price of petroleum.
  • A Gas grill does not allow direct heat for searing meat like steak.
  • Gas grills can get grease build up under the burners that must be scraped from time to time.
  • Gas components like gas jets and valves can clog.
  • Gas grilling does not provide that smoky flavor to food.
  • Gas can be dangerous as it is explosive.
  • Assembling of new gas grills can be more difficult than charcoal grills.
  • Gas grills have more parts than can break.

**These were the main points I thought well to share. I am sure there are many more pros and cons you could add here.

An interesting fact:

Gas grills sales have increased significantly over the last 20 years and now more gas grills are sold than charcoal grills.

BBQ gurus will recommend having both, a gas grill and a charcoal grill. Some BBQ purists prefer to grill some kinds of food on gas and other foods on charcoal.

So, it looks like charcoal grills are related to tastiness whereas gas is related to convenience. It all depends on your preference at the end.

What to buy? Gas or charcoal, or both?

The choice is yours!

I’ll go for a charcoal grill,

and I prefer charcoal or real firewood for my barbecues.

In my case, it all depends on where I will be barbecuing. If I would barbecue in South Africa, I prefer using local firewood or good quality briquettes, which are available everywhere in South Africa.

On the other hand, if I am in the Philippines, where I am most of the time, then I would use natural lump charcoal as this is more accessible than briquettes or firewood at local markets.

Also, charcoal grills are cheaper and the charcoal smoke gives a better flavor and aroma to the meat you grill. I also think charcoal burns far hotter and it is better for grilling steak.

This applies to firewood or natural lump charcoal as well; therefore, I prefer using any kind of charcoal for my barbecue. Grilling with charcoal can be messy, but it is easy and fun if you know what you are doing.

It is easy to work with charcoal grills as they are less complex than gas grills. The ash can be removed with no fuss, and the grills can be cleaned easily.

To sum up…

I think any barbecue enthusiast will agree with me that a cheerful social gathering around an outdoor charcoal grill while searing a good quality juicy steak, is always a perfect experience. This, in my culture, is the best way to kill a few hours on a hot summer’s day.

I am one of those people who ONLY use charcoal. I just looove to barbecue with coals. I enjoy sitting next to a fire pit or charcoal grill, listening to the crackling burning wood, when I use hardwood, or enjoying the deep red color of the burning charcoal briquettes while having a drink or two, or more.

That, to me, is a real barbecue experience!

I favor the tastiness and the smoky flavor of charcoal grilled meat! That is the way I grew up around the grill, a charcoal grill.

Like many South Africans BBQ enthusiasts would say, “If you cannot grill on a charcoal grill, then it is not a real barbecue.”

Final thought…

There you have it! You can make up your own mind on this gas grill vs charcoal grill debate, and decide whether you will go with gas or charcoal.

Enjoy your next barbecue, charcoal or a gas grill, whatever you prefer!

Folding Chimney Starter Review

The Folding Chimney Starter Review – Start charcoal without lighter fluid.

As I have discussed in one of my previous posts, to start charcoal without lighter fluid is very simple and very easy.

A Chimney Starter is always doing the job..

In another post on my website, I discussed and reviewed the TOMSHOO Chimney Starter, which is a round shaped chimney and therefore it cannot fold up. It does a wonderful job in getting your charcoal ready in a few minutes, but you need some space to store it, and it is not made from stainless steel.

On the other hand, the Stainless Steel Folding Charcoal Starter is a more advanced and a better-designed chimney. It is in a class of its own when we talk about Chimney Starters.


Product description and features:
  • This is a high-quality product made from Stainless Steel.
  • Simple rectangular shaped structure, easy to clean and safe to use.
  • It can shrink or fold up using less storage space.
  • After folding up it is easy to carry in its storage bag.
  • For outdoor recreation or home use.
  • Using charcoal or briquettes.

Product specifications:

Price on eBay: USD $43.05

Price on LAZADA: PHP 1,823 (approx USD $38)

Material: High-quality stainless steel

Weight: approx 1800g

Size: 16 x 16 x 29cm (6.3 x 6.3 x 11.4 inch)

Brand: TTD

Warranty type: eBay and LAZADA specified

  • Starting your charcoal fast and easy
  • Stainless steel structure is durable
  • Can fold flat to save space and convenient to carry
  • Comes with a zipper carry bag
  • Very easy to clean
  • LAZADA offers a lower price than eBay
  • Stainless steel handles without heat protection
  • More expensive than the ordinary round shaped chimneys
  • According to reviewers, the stainless steel makes it heavy

Bying Advice…

The Folding Chimney Starter is a beautiful designed high-quality stainless steel item wich will surely last you for a long time. These folding chimneys can do the job effectively.

Another great tool to start charcoal fast and safely, but the price is a bit steep.

In my opinion, it might be the ideal buy if you do a lot of outdoor recreation and camping, as it is easy to clean and easy to carry when folded.

I personally, would go for one of the cheaper round Chimney Starters, like a TOMSHOO Chimney Starter, because I grill mostly at home and the rigid round chimney starter works great for me at home.


So, there you have another brief review on one of the best tools to use to start your charcoal. I hope you enjoyed my review on this Folding Chimney Starter.

To start charcoal without lighter fluid, or without any other chemicals, is an easy task if you have one of these tools.

BBQ Aprons For Men?

Aprons for men? …..you might ask me.

You will be amazed! Men do like to wear aprons! Aprons for men are pretty useful on many occasions.


Well, it all depends on the occasion.

Barbecues are those special times when BBQ aprons for men, and NOT those ladylike ones, will come in handy.

My special apron…

In my case, I prefer to wear my favorite BBQ apron ONLY when I barbecue. I have this special green South African Springbok rugby apron that is always hanging behind the kitchen door ready to be used when it is barbecue time!!

Reasons why I wear my BBQ apron…

It is convenient and it keeps my clothes protected from that sudden unwanted fatty and greasy splatters or potentially spilling BBQ sauce while grilling. Any wife hates to see those bbq stains, agree?

More so, mine has front pockets where I can keep my favorite BBQ goodies in. Anything from a kitchen towel to a can of beer can go in my apron pockets, which is very handy around the grill.

I am very proud wearing my green Springbok apron because the emblem resembles our South African national rugby team who won many famous international rugby events. The 1994 rugby world cup was the biggest highlight in South African rugby history……Well, let’s get back to aprons…

So, now you can see that once you have one of those special aprons, it is just something you cannot be without when you are barbecuing.

You can find Many Funny and Cool Aprons…

Some BBQ aprons have many different pockets which make them super convenient. Others are super cool with funny writings on them, like “The King Of Grill” or “May the forks be with you”. These aprons with the funny imprinted wording can create some humor around the grill and make barbecuing so much more enjoyable!

Some aprons have many convenient pockets and holsters, and that is very useful for those who want their BBQ spices, utensils, and a couple of beers in reach.

They are ideal gifts…

BBQ aprons for men, are ideal gifts for fathers day, birthdays, Christmas, or if you just don’t know what to buy for a guy friend or a male family member!!

A BBQ apron can be a great gift for a barbecue host next time when you are invited to a barbecue. I am sure any barbecue lover will be super happy to add another apron to his collection.

Now, this brings me to the exciting part of this page.

My top 5 choices…

Today, I want to introduce you to some of my favorite BBQ aprons I think are very cool to have. Get your hands on one now, so you can have it ready as a gift for that next invite or just to add to your own cool collection!

TOMSHOO Chimney Starter Review

The Tomshoo Charcoal Chimney Starter Review~The best way to start charcoal.

In a previous post on my website, I discussed the best way to start charcoal.

Do YOU struggle to start your charcoal barbecue?
What IS the best way to start charcoal?

Most people I observed are struggling to start a charcoal fire or just simply use lighter fluid or other chemicals to light the charcoal. Not only is lighter fluid environmentally unfriendly, but it is also not the easiest and fastest way to get your charcoal fire going and ready for grilling.

The best way to start charcoal is a to use a chimney starter, like the TOMSHOO Chimney Starter. This will get your fire going in fast and without a fuss!


Product description and features:
  • The TOMSHOO Chimney Starter is well built with a durable body.
  • The cylindrical shape allows for intense heat.
  • The charcoal grate inside prevents small pieces of charcoal to fall out.
  • It has a comfortable heat-insulated handle.
  • Many air vents allow fast oxygen flow.
  • It can light up lump charcoal and briquettes.

Product specifications:

Price on LAZADA: PHP 1,351 (USD $28) Exchange rate $1 = PHP 48 (at the time of this review)

Price on eBay: USD $17,90

Material: Galvanized iron

Weight: 800g / 28.2 oz

Size: (L x W x H cm) 27.5 x 26 x 26

Warranty type: LAZADA refund warranty only, eBay 6 months manufacture’s warranty

  • Durable galvanized iron body
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to use
  • Handle protection prevents scalding
  • Holds enough charcoal to get your barbecue going in fast
  • Saves time to burn charcoal
  • Relatively cheap compared to a Weber brand
  • Worldwide shipping on eBay
  • Available on LAZADA and eBay
  • Cheaper on eBay
  • Cannot fold up for easy storage as a folding chimney starter
  • Might not last as long as an aluminized steel chimney starter
  • Shipping restrictions on LAZADA
  • More expensive on LAZADA
  • Generic brand

Buying Advice:

eBay offers a 6 months manufacture’s warranty, whereas LAZADA offers only a return warranty.

LAZADA stock them continually, whereas eBay may have limited stock on the priced item, but it is currently cheaper on eBay.

So, in my opinion, I will go for the TOMSHOO Chimney Starter on eBay.


So, there you have it!! I hope you enjoyed my short review on the TOMSHOO Chimney Starter.

The best way to start charcoal is to use the best tool there is, a BBQ Chimney Starter Charcoal Lighter!
