Default what kind of mop/brush?

I want to buy a couple brushes or mops to apply sauces. Which are good ones for the price and what kind of material should I be looking for? I have seen some that are plastic and some that are cotton. I was watching one youtube video and the person looked like he was just using a plain paintbrush! It seems the silicone would be easier to clean than the cotton.

I have used the paintbrush kind in the past (sold alongside kitchen utensils - but I think it's the exact same brush that you would get in the paint aisle at a hardware store.) I find that they lose bristles fairly easily.

I prefer the silicone. (For now... until the gummint tells me that they release some dangerous cancer-causing chemical.)

For brushes I like silicone.
For applying a mop I just get a lenght of butchers twine, loop it, tie it in the middle, then just use a paur of tongs to dip it in the mop and onto the meat. When you are done, toss it.

I use a long handled silicone brush when I am applying sauce to my ribs. If I am applying a mop, I use a mop that I purchased at Smart & Final for $1.99. I actually purchased several of them and when I am done, I rinse under hot water or place in the dish washer.

Silicone. Works great, doesn't absorb the sauce, fast clean up, reusable and will probably out live me. That's for sauce. For lighter applications like vinegar/apple juice a spray bottle works great!
