Hey All,

I had a little trouble using tongs with my 7 lb ribs and stuff. I' am looking for good fire/heat resistant gloves. I' am not interested in any cloth type material less u can convince me of it's worth. Must be able to pick up sauces meet and other stuff with retaining food after cleaning. Any help would be appreciated advice welcome to if I' am on the wrong track. How bad can these be for the price..

I just pick up a pack of cotton knit gloves from tractor supply and nitrile gloves from Sam's. I put on a cotton clove then a nitrile over it. Trick I picked up from malcolm Reed. I can safely pick up anything off my smoker with that combo

No gloves here. I just use a good spatula and some long sturdy BBQ tongs. Haven't had any issues yet.

I have these and am a fan. Whether you do these exact ones or a different brand, I'd highly recommend the route of nitrile gloves with a cotton liner underneath. That's what virtually all of the competition guys seem to be doing. It gives you enough heat resistance to pick up meat hot off the smoker, but enough dexterity that you can still manipulate the food as if you had no gloves at all.

I gave up finding gloves to fit my Paws.
All seem to be made for Little Fellows.
Like Chris, I use Tongs & Spatula.

I triple this! I use shorter tongs as they are more stable. I have "claws" but the seem to "mush" the meat more than I like.

yup was thinking same nitrile seems a bit thin depending on heat of the meat. Won't need it for everything but nice top have for large items like brisket and large dino ribs

Purchased the Cuisinart ones and got some cotton gloves as I have access to nitrile gloves also :<)..

Went ahead and grabbed some of the rapicca's as well might as well find what I like the best.

Hey All,

So got the different gloves this week. The Cuisinart's are horrible so bad I actually just threw em away. The Rapicca's are about right..I also received the knits for use with nitrile.. Though I was wondering how careful I should be with those melting? The BBQ are rated for 950 don't think the nitriles would handle 350+ but /shrug you guys have used em figured u'd chime in.

It appears negolien negolien purchased some gloves. For others looking still, I wanted to 2nd the mention the artisan gloves.
For handling food it’s what I use. Handles pork, brisket and ribs easily. I have 2 pair, one for home and another for cottage.

for handling non food items (fire maintenance, racks, etc I use welders gloves.

In my experience, using cotton knit gloves with nitrile gloves lined on top is solely to give you enough heat protection to pick up food hot off the smoker or work with the meat (like pulling pork by hand), so you're talking about temps like 225 or less in most cases. I would not try to use that setup to pick up a hot grill grate or pan or anything like that. Not only would you probably melt the gloves but you'd burn your hand pretty quickly as well.
