I was cooking dinner yesterday and I had a black residue on my meat that I assumed could only be from all the soot built up over time on the inside of my grill. So I decided it would be a good time to clean my grill however, not know, I used a wire brush to scrape it all down and vacuum it out. After getting inside and doing my research (what I should have done before I cleaned my grill) I realized you're not supposed to clean your grill with a wire brush. Is the grill still going to work? Is there something I can do to make sure it's still good?

Other than possibly scratching up the paint it's going to be fine.

Is using a stainless steel brush on the porcelain grill grate really that big of concern? I use wood, but like to use this too:
Should I stop?

I use both Wood scrapper to knock off the stubborn bits, and I dip the wire brush in the water pan then clean the grates it works great. I do this when the grill is HOT, the heat dries out the moisture. I have not seen any adverse effects to the porcelain.
