After setting up camp, that is the first thing I try to remember to do....

And being allergic to pork... I use a TON of gloves and soap. Gloves on before opening pork butt packages.... trim, etc.... change gloves.... then rub. Take off gloves, and wash well.... more gloves, then on to the ribs. Same thing....

The same goes for the brisket and the chicken. I picked up a couple of boxes from Harbor Freight the last time through S.C..... I usually keep at least 3-4 boxes handy at all times.

I also like the idea for the public to see me using the gloves. They like the "safety" and cleanliness I am sure.

Not only do I have to look out for myself, but I feel it is best for all involved. And with my allergy, I use different knives, cutting boards, etc. for my pork products than for my beef and chicken. Then they all go into the wash basin for a thorough cleaning and sanitizing.
