    Winter Grilling/Smoking Gloves?

    During the other seasons I use welding gloves for grilling and smoking. I've now got 2 pair - one a little more beat-up that I use to handle dirty grates and to get unlit coals, the other a little cleaner for general cooking work. But the neuropathy in my hands make them get numb and sting pretty quickly. Right now it's 28 with a wind chill of 21 and my hands hurt after only 10 minutes. What I really need are some really thin warm gloves that I could wear under my welding gloves. Having only been back East for a couple of years, I haven't had the need for anything other than regular winter gloves until now.

    Any of you Northerners have any suggestions? Or other alternatives to the welding glove/"under" glove combo?

    Burn hard to say what will fit under the welding gloves. I have a pair of Thinsulate gloves with the tops of the fingers cut off. I use them for fishing. However I brought them 20 years ago. Try the hunting and fishing guys like Basspro or Cabela's.


      I went through this same thing with gloves for fourwheeling. I spent a lot of money on gloves and a lot of time trying to find something that would work without a liner glove and there just isn't anything to beat it. I talked to family in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan and my in-laws in Minnesota and they all told me to get liner gloves.

      I currently wear some cheap thin gloves, they kind with the gripper dots all over the palm and fingers, I got from a gas station under some big mittens. Cabela's has all sorts of nice liner gloves. I'd suggest you get a pair of these to fit then go to wherever you get your welding gloves and try some on over the liner gloves.

      I have a $120 pair of high performance gloves and they don't even come close to a liner and a cheap glove over it.

      Here's a link to help you get started.


        Thanks guys. They opened a Cabela's about half-hour away this summer, so I'll go check it out.

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
