Depends on what you call large amounts... For example, this weekend I'm making about as small an amount of Q as I've done in 5 or 6 years; I'll be Qing only 6 or 7 butts. Ordinarily I do 10-15, have done as many as 42. Always pull by hand, sometimes if so hot we'll actually adorn nitrile gloves. Some, as you've read, put the nitrile over other gloves, but I find that I need/want to feel the pork; fat feels different than pork.

Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
