My wife ordered me the same ones for Father's Day last year and they are awesome! They're probably the exact same glove that the other site is selling as well. Just thick enough to be able to pull meat with good texture for grip. Love 'em.

To save a little on shipping (distribute it among other items), while you're in this neighborhood I HIGHLY recommend getting some of their rubs! SM is SIMPLY AWESOME!!!! Yeah, get the bear claws if you must. Some swear by them.... <sigh>

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.

I have been using a premium nitril coated knit glove.

It is somewhat like the one Vinny mentioned, except only the fingers and palms are dipped, and they are dipped in Nitrile. The glove itself is a very thin mesh. This very thin glove, coupled with the very flexible nitrile coating leads to a really flexible glove that can still accomodate very hot meat. (I can move a grate with them if I am quick, but would not really recommend this use initially)

It is far more flexible than both the fully dipped cotton gloves, and the "Raichlen Style" gloves which are very cumbersome to me.

I get mine for 3-4 bucks at the hardware store, and they last a few uses as food movers, then get moved over to a few uses of pit cleaners, then tossed.

Bought these recently and they are FANSTATIC! Great for taking beer can chickens off the WSM, ribs, and my new best friend for taking corn husks off piping hot corn cobs!

EASY clean up, wish I would have bought them sooner! Great texture too for pulling pork, etc.

I use a pair of cottom Jersey glove's from HD with a pair of XL Nitril gloves over them. I think you get 3 pairs for around $5 at HD, and I always have a box of food gloves around. They're great because the cotton absorbs the sweat and is a great barrier from the heat and you can still feel the texture of the meat.

Picked these up recently. I have very large hands. They fit these gloves, and the fabric lining helps with removing. They would likely accommodate a slightly larger hand.

They are slick, but that seems to be a common trait among these glove types
These are a winner for me. I hesitated to buy these gloves because they look so slick. Well, after using the rest and hating them, I picked up a pair about 2 months ago. These are the gloves to have.

The problem with some of the other gloves is that they hate heat. Hot foods, such as butts, can be handled with these gloves, but over a short period of time the fingers become brittle and crack. Once they crack you cannot pull hot butts.

Another problem with some of these gloves in the fuzz on the inside. It will not dry! If the insides get wet from washing them it takes an act of God to get these gloves dry. Even with a hair dryer blowing into them...

And lastly, they're hard to clean. The grip really holds onto foods.

The Steven Raichlen gloves have none of these characteristics. They're slick, yes, but so much easier to clean! And, they last. Already they've lasted 4x longer than any of the other gloves. These are the gloves to have.

I have a couple sets of gloves. I have the pvc dipped gloves that I received from an order when I got the sampler pack of Simply Marvelous.

I tend to use a pair of wool gloves and some nitrile gloves when handling meats off the smoker as well as for pulling pork/slicing brisket etc.

Butterball (yeah, the turkey folks) sells a pair of heat resistant carving gloves. They usually have them at my Lowe's and Home Depot. I think they are about 10 bucks.

I don't have a pair - but they look at lot like my insulated BBQ gloves (the brand of which I cannot remember.)
