Default What's up with all the black nitrile gloves?

Forgive me if this is a stupid question. So I've just recently been getting more into BBQ, and started watching lots of Youtube videos about BBQ, smoking, grilling, etc.

Why is everyone always wearing black nitrile gloves, lookin' like O.J. Simpson or something? I guess I can understand it when handling raw meat, since it's faster/easier to just take off your gloves before going on to the next task. But people are wearing gloves when handling charcoal, cutting cooked meat, everything. What's the deal? Just trying to protect their manicures?

My wife and I have always watched a lot of traditional "indoor" cooking shows, and I never see many people wearing gloves in those, so it just makes me wonder why all the BBQers are...

Black nitrile with dry cotton gloves underneath give you the ability to handle hot meats and still have some dexterity.

Once you try them, all other cooking gloves are obsolete.

Unless you have a sink or running water outside, washing your hands frequently is a luxury. Nitrile gloves fix that. Then theres the knit gloves under nitrile gloves that work amazingly well for handling hot things.

If you cook a lot of meat in a large smoker, you often want to move things around, and nitrile gloves with cotton underneath make it much easier than using tools or big silicon mits. They are also great for pulling pork, shredded beef etc.

There it is, watch pitmasters on YouTube and you'll pick up a few more things.

^^^^This.

It allows for sanitary meat handling and, with the cotton inserts, gives you some heat resistance to handle hot meats.

Sanitary reasons for wearing nitrile gloves are the important thing.... but one reason black nitrile gloves are more popular than other colors (like blue) is because they don't show sauce, grease (other than some shine), and don't show smudges from your smoker. In other words, gloves are certainly better than relying on hand washing and sanitizer alone, but even though they don't look soiled, you still need to change them often.

Gotta say I like to see food prep done with gloves, even if it's a fancy indoor chef.

I'm fortunate enough that they supply 4mil nitrile gloves and cotton gloves at my work and they work great together moving hot food or pulling pork. I wont be buying gloves for a long time.
