I'd be inclined to use synthetic brushes. Natural bristles, being hair after all, will soak up any liquid they're exposed to. Synthetic ones won't.

Basting will pretty much rub your rub right off! I use a spray bottle, just like a garden sprayer. Strain your spices out so they don't clog the nozzle, and use that. It may wash off a little rub too, but not near as much.

You might want to try these. The bristles will not melt or come off on your food. I have a set and I love them!

Most good natural bristle basting brushes are boars hair. Those new brushes that ddog pointed out are getting good reviews.

I just got two of these for 7 bucks each at a restaurant supply store. They're awesome.

I love the hook on the side.

The silicone brushes are way better than any other brushes, IMO. I've used many other brushes and I got tired of picking loose bristles off of my food.

Plus, the silicone ones are easier to clean.

I use a BBQ mop! Holds lots of sauce or juice. Got to be sure to bleach it a little when cleaning to make white again.
