    Here is what I use on the exhaust pipe. Is that what you want it for? Our P61 did not come with a brush.
    Anyway, this brush works well for me.

    So I got a new brush from Grainger. The twisted metal rod is much thicker/beefier so I think it will do the trick. I will update after the next time I clean the stove.

    So I cleaned the stove because I wanted to try out the new brush. I was able to push it all the way through the exhaust path. It took a little forcing to get it through. Unlike the harman brush which was too weak and would bend on itself, this one was almost too stiff to make the 90° turn. So it definitely works, but I still think there is probably a better way. Maybe I will get another length of hose and try the previously mentioned vacuum method.

    For all you guys that use the vac attachment, are you brushing first then vacuuming or just vacuuming?

    I

    I always brush first usually 3-4 times through the tube then vacuum to pick up all the lose ash. I have no problem going through the tubes with the harman brush and always look in the right tube (looking at the stove ) to make sure i am all the way through. But I do this every Sunday
