Default Heavy Rubber Meat Handling cooking gloves?

At Costco I watched the cook taking dozens on rotisserie chickens out of the cooker and put them on display for sale. He wore heavy rubber gloves that allowed him to handle the hot chickens by hand. They were black and relatively stiff, holding their shape even when the hands were out. Heavy rubber and smooth glossy surface that allowed them to be easily wiped clean.

I've done some searches but can't find anything like this. Does anyone know what these types of gloves are?

Based on your description... see link below. (Look at the Ad header "Neoprene Coated Insulated Gloves" and then look at the Ansell Neox Hi-Low model within the ad)

I work for the company in the link I provided and bought a few pairs a while back. These specific models are great for handling hot meats or grates but not flexible enough to pick a pork butt apart as the rubber is stiff and the fingerholes are large. Other gloves exist with neoprene coating that are more snug around the fingers that will provide dexterity in the fingers if your looking for that purpose.

Thanks MilitantSquatter. The Thermaprene's are the ones. Says they are FDA approved for food handling. I've been wanting a pair for handling hot foods in the smoker. Much easier than tongs or forks.

Now that I know the name of them, I found this pic on the net showing them being used for rotissiere chickens.

Check out this website. Click on barbecue tools. What you are looking for cost $10.00 and the shipping is free. I have three pair and they ARE what you are looking for. Black Knight is the brand. They have some dexterity and you can pull pork with them and handle hot briskets with them.

I too use the Black Knight gloves. They work great for handling hot meats, pulling hot pork etc. I ordered mine off the 'net. It was 12 pairs for something like $35.00. Gave away several pair and still have several pair as backups...

The ones I've had are the Steven Raichlen gloves. They're thicker, which helps, but also makes you lose some dexterity. For most things, they work great.

Great post. I was looking for some gloves after roasting my hands along with some ribs last weekend. I already ordered two sets and can't wait to put them to use.

Default Insulated Gloves

I bought a pair from Harbor Freight tools, Red with thick insulation.. But the smell yucky. I have scrubbed them with hot soapy water, but they still have the same smell. Is this normal for PVC. Do the Black Knight gloves smell the same way ? Will the smell get into the meat ? Or will it eventually go away with use ?

Good info, I'm going to order some of the black knight gloves. What I have been doing is using a pair of the orange PVC gloves over a pair of polyester glove liners for pulling pork. They are available at my local hardware store (not one of the box stores) for a total of about 6 bucks. Yeah, you look like one of those guys on the deadliest catch but it works.
