BBQ Gloves

Anyone have some good suggestions on solid BBQ gloves, and where to find them?


  • I purchased some standard BBQ gloves at my local dealer. I then added welding gloves to ensure added safety when handling stuff from inside the egg. Welding gloves should be available at hardware or building supply stores.

  • I would buy a good pair of welding gloves and make sure they cover the forearms.

    I'm a big fan of these 500° Orkas - much better than welding gloves when you're going in harms way! They are expensive compared to welders, but worth it. Available several places including Amazon.

  • Not sure what "solid" means but I use these from Ceramic Grill Store:

    I use the blue neoprene like chemical/paint gloves at Lowes. They are heat "resistant", provide great flexibility in your hands, easy to clean, and only cost about $4 a pair. We go through about 2-3 pairs a year during the summer competition season as they get dirty and they start to harden up after awhile. But, for the price, I like them over anything else I've seen or tried and we use them hard at cooksoffs and at home as well.

  • Go to your local welding supply store. My last pair of welding gloves lasted 10 years. the new ones I was forced to get cost $11.

    While you're there look at getting one of the wire welding brushes for cleaning your grill $4 if I recall correctly. Last a lot longer than those pieces of crap they try to sell in the stores.

    I concur. I have three different pair...welders, leather and these. These work the best. The ridges give some extra thickness that allow you to hold hot items for a longer period of time.
