My wife hooked me up with a new pair of heavy duty suede BBQ gloves for Christmas. They are part of Steven Raichlen’s “Best of Barbecue” line. As you can see in the pictures I took below, they are thick suede and will go high up on the forearm, protecting you from potential arm burns. It’s important to note that these are gloves, not mitts, so they are really comfortable and will be quite versatile during your cook. These gloves seem to get really great reviews on Amazon, but I’ll agree with some of the comments that these aren’t going to protect you against direct high heat for that long. If you need something to be able to grab super hot iron with and move it a decent distance, you’ll need to get something that is specifically made for that. These look like they’re going to be great all around backyard BBQing gloves, but I’ll let ya know in 6 months or so how they’re holding up.
