    I use the welders gloves I got from Ceramic Grill Store. They are great.

    I use temp labor and they always bring those leather gloves, new, and never use them and leave them in my trailer. I use them for everything. I wouldn't want to run the block holding a ps but easily get it off.

    I've gloves and Pitt mitts both work well. You can remove a plate setter during a pizza cook and they give you 10 seconds or so. I have 2 of each and they are pretty much the same so get ove gloves they are cheaper. Probably can find a pair from eBay for $25 or so. I have cleaned glowing lump out of my mini with the I've gloves and didn't get burnt.

    I have a pair of structural firefighting gloves.

    Are these different from normal firefighters gloves? I have a pair of the kevlar ones and they are great. They went awefully stiff on me but they were the best ive had. Do you have a source?

    Might rephrase that

    Gotta say the Michelin Man suit appealed. If it only protected the hands... ah, what might've been.
  • i was in a Harbour Freight tool store today.  They had like $5 and $10 pairs of leather welders gloves, they just seemed so thin, i can't believe those really work for protecting your hands while handling hot heavy items??

    I've had Master Forge leather grill gloves for over a year and love them.  Inexpensive and can easily do anything you need to on the Egg.

  • I use the ove gloves too and they work well.  I'm getting my son a pair for Christmas.  I once tried cheap welding gloves from Harbor Freight and pulled the hot platesetter but won't try that again.

    5 years ago I bought a pair of these gloves:

    They fit and worked fine on my large hands.  They started to show some wear, so I decided to buy another pair and put them in the drawer until I needed them.  The new ones do not fit my hands.  They are about 3/8 inch narrower.  I contacted the company and they sent me a new pair which did not fit either.  They said they had switched suppliers and the supplier must have made them narrower.

    If you have large hands, beware they may not fit.

  • +1 on the Pampered Chef BBQ Mitts.  I have had these for the last 3 or 4 years.  

    I like the extra padding/protection on the inside. They are starting to wear now but they work great for anything that you need to do with the egg.

  • +1 on steve raichlen from amazon. I really like the long length as these have saved my arm hair more than once on flashback. Good price and good quality.
