Interesting read and tidbits! I wear gloves when catering and I need to do a better job handling my rubs, I use the put it in a seperate container and discard the remaining rub technique. Therefore, I am going to try and cover my rubs as well. For removing hot meat from my smoker, I use a rivetless peel (apparatus used to remove pizzas from hot oven).
Peace and Smoke,
