    Need a rec for grill gloves

    Gang - I am in the market for a pair of new grill gloves and am looking for a recommendation. Up until now I've been using a pair of Ove Gloves which have worked out great, except they have a cottony exterior that is difficult to clean and the gloves are getting pretty funky. This site recommends the Suede Barbeque, Grill and Fireplace Gloves. They seem like they would work but there are a number of Amazon reviews complaining they don't stand up to the heat of a hot grill very well - stories of people burning their fingers trying to pick up a cast iron pan or metal vegetable basket, etc. If so, that's a pretty bad fail for "grill gloves." Does anyone have a favorite pair they would recommend?

    The Ove Gloves are washable, just make sure they are dry before using.

      I use a cheap pair of welding gloves from Horrible Freight. They work great.

        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".

      • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

      I use pit mitts and Grill Armor Gloves.

      Both pretty much equal, but the pit Mir goes a little higher so it is safer to use to read in. NO probs with heat penetration.

        Pitt Mitts are good, but they need to make them for men, the little lady gloves I have just go past the second knuckle

        John , I have large hands and my pitt mitt fits fine - maybe you just need a larger size, or maybe they shrunk??

        8 1/2" at the longest, had a ruler handy I have only seen one size, and they were small before washing. I will have to check for sizes though I thought it was that old one size fits all.

      Pit Mitts fit me fine. I toss them in the washer/dryer after each cook.

      I also use Ove Gloves, in a pinch, but they're harder to dry because they're supposed to be washed and not tossed in the dryer, as I recall. AT least I never toss them in the dryer. I have both flavors of Ove Gloves the regular ones and the ones for blocking steam burns. Like Mark mgaretz says, they have to be turned inside out to get thoroughly dry. I like them for kitchen work but not so much for backyard grilling needs.

      And of course for grabbing the searingly hot stuff, my super duper welder's gloves are amazing. They've got the burn marks on the paws to show how hard they've worked!

        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.

          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.

            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.

            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'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?

            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 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.

            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.

              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.

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

                slow n sear
                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                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.

                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!
