Welcome Geoff; your netiquette is irreproachable.

Are these "Brillo" pads or do I have something else in mind? Since I
only take a wire brush to the grill (every other year or so), I
wouldn't know about more delicate cleaning devices.

CURLY KATE--Someone on the tour mentioned this, a kitchen product.  A
quick web search shows a sponge by this name.  Any good "Curly Kate"
mentions in the usual sources?

I don't know if this counts as 'the usual sources', but "Curly Kate"
was the name used in Toronto in the sixties for a scrubbing pad made
of curled-up copper strands (a non-soapy competitor to SOS pads).  It
may well have been a brand name, but alas I don't remember.  The
things are still available, incidentally, but not under that name, at
least in Detroit.
Apologies if I have violated the netiquette of this group--I've only
just joined it.
