Always check your grates before you put food on them and I 2nd the motion to oiling your grates after cleaning them.
One other thing, you can clean them with wadded up aluminum foil... but we all know the dangers that aluminum foil pose
Sorry to hear of your misfortunes. But I thank you for posting this. I'm throwing my bristle brushes away NOW!

Another reason not to use metal brushes is that they scratch porcelain coated grates causing them to rust. I've started using the Scotch Brite type pads.

Also, don't use cheap brushes like so many do. I use weber and replace it every year. (and also check grates before hand).
