I tested many different mitts and gloves and posted about them in the past. One of the items that I liked the best was a pair of Nomex flight gloves which are worn by military pilots. They are thin so they are not designed to handle super hot grates or plate setters but they work great when you need to baste, flip, turn, sprinkle, stir, taste, load, or unload food on the egg. They are thin enough that you have complete control of the finer grilling tools but the Nomex is flame proof and disipates heat well, plus they are long so they protect your entire forearms from heat or flashback. I paid $30 for my pair and felt that it was a good deal but I just noticed that they are on sale for less than half price ($13-$14) at Sportsmans Guide
. They come in different sizes and colors while supplies last. Enjoy.
