    Who makes really good BBQ gloves that could work well with either a grill or dutch oven cooking? I prefer longer ones and really want something that can handle high heat. I'd appreciate any help you all could give me!

    This is only relevant if you plan on strangling ZOMBIES with them.

    And I use leather welding gloves for pretty much everything hot.

    I wasn't sure what to call them in the title, but went with BBQ gloves after some Amazon searches.

    Mostly want to use them for picking up cast iron fajita plates, dutch ovens, etc.

    I would say welding or fireplace gloves. Go to any welding supply shop or Woodstove store.

    I don't like BBQ gloves. Chicken, yes. Beef, yes. Pork, yes. Gloves, no.

    I am handling hot objects, I prefer welding gloves as others have mentioned. I own several.

    Sounds like a really smart idea! I'm going to be looking for a pair on Amazon today. Just to make sure I don't get burned are all welding gloves insulated against high heat?

    A friend of mine has some that are made by Lodge. All they are is a pair of welders gloves repackaged with their own logo.

    I use the $5 welding gloves from Harbor Freight.

    There's plenty of gloves out there, none offer serious heat protection longer than 3-4 seconds.

    I would strongly suggest handling very hot metals for longer than 3-4 seconds by using 2-3 layers (pot holders, etc) in conjunction with welding gloves. The problem is once you heat that leather up, it will transfer the heat to your hands and burn you. If you use additional barriers, you can let go of the pot holders and prevent the transfer.

    Hopefully, I'm not holding something longer than 3-4 seconds. Just pick the things up and put them down as fast as possible.

    I'd rather get burned, feel the excrutiating pain of the flames roasting my skin, craking and pealing off leaving the flesh exposed until the flesh itself turns to charcoal and falls, leaving the white bone alone, rather than wear something called BBQ gloves.:cool:

    Seriously, I've cooked countiless asados with burning firewood and charcoal and never needed sometihng like that. Just get a big knife and long fork, and be quick about it.
    Little secret besides that, if you can't set up the meat simply by hurrying a bit, then its just too hot and it will burn rather than cook.

    I guess it depends, but more important you dont really need "BBQ gloves". That's the point.
