    I have an old pair of gloves from the Marines for fast roping and those are what I use when I need them, other than that I have to go with the wool ones. I'm sure there are places out there buy I haven't really looked.

    I've been thinking again, John ( always worrisome). Since it seems you have larger hands than I, where to you by winter gloves. I can't find any that fit me.

    Or are you in a warm climate where winter floves are not needed?

    Rule for HF:

    Never buy anything with more than three moving parts.

    Thanks all. I like the two glove fire / food approach recommended by Usernamevalid, so I put in an order of the set recommended by The Burn (they look like something The Predator would wear, which is super cool) and a pair of the orange silicone for food handling.

    Measured my hand just to the start of the palm, not the glove, you can see how 8.5 inches wouldn't fit well. The middle finger on your pic shows about 3" long, my middle finger is 4" long, so while it stretches a tiny bit, I can't spread my fingers out at all.

    Anything with cloth can be dangerous. If they get wet or damp and you pick up something hot, the water will turn to steam. I have a pair of Pit Mitts that got pretty hot in that very manner. I still use them, but only for the fire part. For food I picked up a set of those orange bumpy food grade silicone they sell on Amazon. More than enough protection to remove a pork butt or brisket from the smoker. They're also going to get used for turkey. Dishwasher cleaning is nice too.


    I have a pair of actual mitts with the long arm, like gauntlet. No fingers is a pain.

    I have the version of Pit Mitts that have the longer cuff but I haven't seen any other sizes. I would agree that the seem a bit small since they fit me well.

    totally agree.. Welding gloves are great for re-positioning cast iron pcs but when it comes to handling the food itself, I'm lucky i share a space with an EMT that has access to disposable gloves. They work great most of the time...

    I wouldn't use any of these "oven mitts" for pulling or handling meat. Get yourself some insulated PVC gloves for that task. I use welding gloves for handling the hot metal bits and charcoal.

    Great place to buy odd tools you only need to use once. Just don't expect MAC or Snap-On quality. First (and only) time my wife came in with me she asked "what's that awful smell?" to which I replied "that is the smell of Chinese tools, dear".

  • CurlingDog
    replied
    i saw this in one of the questions for this product...
    Q: are they suitable for pulling pork or chicken?
    A: Suitable for getting the pork or chicken off of the grill, also suitable for "pulling" if you are using bear claws. I would not recommend pulling with just these gloves as they will absorb too much of the grease.

    The Burn , let us know how those gloves work out. They're rated for 932 deg F as compared to 475 deg F for Pitt Mitts. Can that heat tolerance claim be right for those gloves? They have silicone strips on them. Most silicone cookware is only rated up to about 500 deg F on contact, based some of the manuf. warnings on my silicone bakeware.

    Even my (beloved) welder's gloves are only rated for 900 degF contact heat and 1200 degF ambient heat.

Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder's fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here's a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys:

If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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.

The Undisputed Champion!

thermapen
The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

kareubequ bbq smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
