Can anyone recommend some nice heavy duty high temp gloves for BBQing? Xmas is coming up and my darn rawhide leather gloves don't keep my hands safe all the time. Thanks!

To handle hot items like the grill and chimney starter, etc, you need welding gloves. You can get them at Home Depot, Lowes, etc.

For handling and separating meat, etc, you want the texasbbqrub ones that a previous poster mentioned. They make a real mean bbq rub too!

I just use thick, long-gauntleted suede welding gloves at about $6.00 a pair - nothing fancy either but they come in blue, black, and a few other colors. You can get these at almost any work wear store or auto or welding supply outlet. I pick up hot grates and even burning coals with mine, and they're great for stoking the fireplace.

And at the price, it's not a bad idea to pick up a spare pair or two, either. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I know these weren't what the OP was looking for, but just to chime in on these: I have two pairs of these and they are awesome for actually handling the meats directly off the grill and pulling pork, etc!!! And at $10 a pair with free shipping, you can't beat the deal. They are as good or better than more expensive ones on the market, so no reason to spend more imo. The textured fingers make for a great grip. And being 100% waterproof not only keeps the juices out but clean up is just a matter of washing your hands while still wearing the gloves.

I'll have to look for these. I need a pair to handle the fire box on my upright smoker; I make due with heavy leather gloves but they really aren't sufficient. Thanks for the tip.
