We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Gloves Again - Help me pick some

I want some high heat resistant gloves to handle the plate setter and stone in my spider when changing between indirect and direct.  Here's some that I think give me the max protection without getting into the silly price category:

Any thoughts on best choices?  I would imagine the warmest ceramic I would need to touch would be around 550 and that's just to lift it and get it out, not hold on to it for an extended period.

Also looking at getting a pair of these to deal with any food issues:  http://www.constructiongear.com/ansell-thermaprene-gloves.html?lsku=UA190248S

All comments and suggestions welcome.  Last time I used my leather Wells Lamont gloves from Costco to take out my hot plate setter, my fingers were pretty darn toasty by the time I got it to the ground (less than 10 seconds) and the residual heat in the touched portions had me hopping to get them off.  I decided I need to upgrade.
