I'm thinking about picking these gloves up primarily for pulling pork. Does anyone have them or have any thoughts. I was close to spending more $$ one some elsewhere before I found them.

I have them, and like them.

Also may want to check out these from a recent thread on pulling meat --

I use my left and right hand in conjunction with a pair of THESE (http://www.texasbbqrub.com/bbqgloves.htm):razz:

I have them and like them as well. I use them in combination with the Meat Rake to pull pork and beef and love how both work. My hands still get pretty warm in the gloves but nothing that isn't tolerable

I use the Butterball carving gloves. Work great and aren't very expensive.

I have them. The thing I don't like is that they are too slick. Hard to grab fat when pulling a pork butt.

Thanks everyone. Sounds like they will work for my needs. I think the best way to pull pork is with your fingers and these should help with that.

my buddy had these and said they fell apart after 2-3 uses. I was going to get them until he told me that story

Good gloves, as stated above they do get slick and sometimes are a pain to get off your hands.

I have a pair that got all mildewy and nasty inside after a road trip home from a comp- I bleached them but they still look like hell!

Save your money for MEAT and get these instead!

I have a pair of the pvc coated gloves. If i didnt receive mine free from Simply Marvelous order, i would of gotten them from homedepot or harbor freight. They are the same thing as Steve Raichlen gloves without the marketting name.

I have a pair of them and like them. Do not mistake them for oven mitts. Pick up something hot enough and they will melt. For handling food they are fine.

Oh I know, you'd have to be a dumby to think these things replace oven mitts

I have them and use them for pulling meat from the WSM to foil and finish. Perfect for pulling pork.

I don't have these to test, but if slickness and staining are a problem, could you slide a pair of latex food handling gloves over the top? I feel like I've seen people do that over the Ov Gloves, but maybe these are too bulky.

Might be a tight fit.

Thanks Chis!

Dumby here (I guess.)

I thought that since silicone handles high heat well that these would. They don't

Brown cotton work gloves, the real cheapies, with a pair on Nitrile gloves over them. Works really well for me.

^^^ +1 to this.

Cheap and easy to replace if they get dirty. Harbor Freight has the nitrile gloves in different thicknesses (3 mil, 5 mil, & up to 8mil, IIRC) that work great with either brown cotton gloves or these knit cotton gloves:

I bought a 12-pack of gloves for $35 at Amazon. They are perfect for pulling pork, food handling, etc. They're also great for lots of other uses as well.

I have a pair & they are good for handling hot, large pieces of meat. Pulling pork with them is a pain. They get very slick quick & are not very flexible, IMHO. Also, you better clean them good right away. They will mildew & stain.

I go with along with smokin d & tnjimbob. Cheap cotton work gloves under a pair of nitrile gloves is a lot better for pulling.

If you're near the water, you can find insulated crabbing gloves that work just as well (if not better if you can find some that are textured) for a much better price. When I lived in VA, that's all I used.

^^^Yup, I've used the 2nd pair for several years and they work great! I've noticed that they do eventually kinda harden up and are less flexible, but heck at that price if I get a year out of them we're good!

I usually get the smallest ones I can that still fit, I loose a bit of insulation that way, but gain dexterity, well worth it! A pair of nitrile gloves inside these gloves makes them slide off a lot easier too!

What he said.
I tried several brands/types of the heavy insulated gloves.
Slick and hard to keep clean inside.
No "feel" and hard to pick out bits of fat and other "stuff".

Thin cotton gloves inside Nitrile works wonderful for me 8)
K.I.S.S.
