    gloves

    I have these gloves that are supposed to be good to ~ 900°. I think the "good" means that they won't melt or burn below 900°. They do not provide much insulation, which is what's important to me, so I'm looking for gloves that protect my hands from heat. Suggestions please...

    I'm sure you'll get lots of comments on the preferences of others, even if those choices might not fit for you. Just a thought here if you're mostly happy with the other performance features of those gloves. Try getting some of those "cotton" gloves we often see folks use under their "nytrile" gloves for added insulation. You'll have the fire/heat resistance of the ones above and the added insulation of "double" thickness.

      I do have a pair of those cotton gloves.

    I have a similar pair I never use...the "silicone" on the palm started to melt when I picked up a cast iron frying pan to pour grease out of. I have a pair of silicone "mittens" that I can't find anymore, which is too bad because they actually work, and are waterproof, but are starting to wear out. Not the easiest to grip with but they do keep my hands safe.

    The best suggestions I've seen on here for non-waterproof heat protection have been welding gloves.

      I have Pitmakers, which reviewed well on the free side. No problem handling things at the grill surface or even cast iron straight from the oven. I wish they were a bit more flexible and form-fitting, but at these temps, I think everything comes with a trade-off.

        I use Nitrile gloves with cotton gloves underneath to handle food off the grill. I use something similar to what you have to handle hot lids, etc. I use welding gloves for the real hot stuff.

          my two cents, if your looking for gloves to grab a hot cast iron pan or for sticking your paw into the firebox to move hot coals around, I went to the welding supply and got mine. I can push burning coals to one side to add fresh coals and pull firebox out and they come up mid arm. if your looking for something to work with hot food i.e. slicing ribs, arranging pork ,chicken, brisket in comp box,cotton gloves with food grade nitrile gloves, flexible good protection from heat

            This is the way I went. They have welding gloves at my local Ace Hardware. If you get hot liquid on them they give that extra second to get them off before it soaks through and burns you. With those knit gloves you’re burned.

          I use welding gloves too, and highly recommend them; insulated and durable in one handy package.

            I have used these gloves for nearly 7 years and I think they are perfect. I bought a new pair last year as the old ones were pretty dirty after six years but certainly still usable. The additional length lets me reach deep into the smoker and move coals with no worries. They are all the same gloves AR recommends along the sidebar.

              I had these and was not happy with them. They work ok for short periods of hot handling but not if you need to hold something for any extended period of time.

            I wear old firefighting bunker gloves I “found”. Almost zero dexterity for fine motor but I can pick up a ripping hot heat deflector and move it around without any discomfort.

            *NOTE: These were NOS. Wouldn’t recommend using used firefighting gloves.

              I see several 'Masters of the Pit' here. "Oh, yeah, when the coals aren't doing what I want, I just reach in there and slap 'em around." 😄

            I use Harbor Freight gloves. I have both the cheaper and more expensive ones. I recommend springing for the more expensive pair.

                I use Lincoln welding gloves. They serve me well. I just always have to remember to never let my arm touch the hot edge of the cooker ABOVE the glove's gauntlet. One moment forearm scar is enough...

                    Take the temps up a notch each cook and soon no glove needed

                      I use the G & F 8115 Premium Grain Leather Gloves as reviewed here on AmazingRibs.com and have not been disappointed. I have moved hot charcoal around with them with no problem (but I don't hold on to them for long).
