Yeah, handle is about 16 inches long with 4 inches of wire brush at a 90 degree angle to the handle which makes it easy to scour inside the firebox. I brush off the water coils once a day. I brush the inside of the fire box and baffles once a week.

That sounds like an excellent idea. Extract more heat before the baro mixes in cooler air
