So I picked up a pack of these bottlecap silicone basting brushes at Walmart the other night. Sadly I don't remember the brand name, I tossed the package as soon as I opened them. they were $3+ for a pack of 2 - can find them near the BBQ stuff.

They seem very gimicky, so I wasn't expecting much out of them. I got to use them for the first time today and I really like them! They just screw on to whatever bottle you have, and turn that bottle into a squeeze bottle with a silicone basting brush on top of it. They are threaded so they fit multiple types, and sizes of bottles.

They have a small hole inside them so the sauce doesn't just pour out. I really like them thus far.

Similar to this one:







Just wanted to share my experience with them, and tell you all to give em a try... even if they are gimicky, lol.

I'm glad you posted this! I saw them today and wondered how they'd be. Thanks for testing them for me. Laughing

And you just contaminated the entire bottle of whatever you used.

The outside of anything I put sauce on is always fully cooked. No contamination here. And if you're still worried about that happening, you could always use a specific bottle each time that you pour the amount of sauce in that you need, and wash thoroughly afterwards.

It really is nice having the sauce squeezable into the silicone brush.

I'll just stick to my plastic 1 qt. squeeze bottle and separate brush.
Squeeze it on the meat and spread it around with the brush.

I use a silicone basting brush. I pour my sauce in a mug and dip the brush in. Works just as well. Smile

I do the same thing. But saw this item, and wanted to give it a try, and it works quite well.

Will I use it every time I sauce something? No.

Will I use it again? Absolutely.

Oh! That's right, I forgot bacteria does not grow in the danger zone of foods. Silly me.

Cheers

I think it would be handy if you were smoking a bunch of stuff that required BBQ sauce. Just slap it on the bottle and have at it. But I could see other instances where it might not be so handy.

I'm retired and maybe I'm set in my ways, but I use a basting brush identical to the one on the following web site (I don't know anything about the web site, though it looks like it would be OK to order from):

http://www.instawares.com/basting-brush-long-reach-40370.40370.0.7.htm

I've used it a very long time and the boar bristles stay in and don't break off when you are using it. The markings on mine say "Sparta Long Reach Boar Bristle".

I used to use a bristle brush for basting but I got tired of the bristles coming off onto my food, so I switched to silicone years ago.

The Sparta I use has bristles that epoxied in. They don't break off.
