During barbecues, your hands will be spending some considerable amount of time near hot flames from grills or smokers. As such, having a decent pair of BBQ gloves that protects you from insanely hot flames, juices, or steams is indispensable.
Barbecue gloves are made of different materials. The most common are woven fabric and silicone. The latter are more versatile. They are waterproof and will, therefore, protect you from hot steams and juices. In addition, they are also mess-free and easy to keep clean. On the downside, most of them offer little dexterity and grip on slick and smaller items.Conversely, woven fabric ovens offer more dexterity and superior grips. However, these won’t protect you from steams and hot juices. They also get messy easily.
When shopping for these gloves, it’s important to consider the size. The gloves shouldn’t be too tight or too bulky for your hands. They should also be easy to put on and to pull out. Gloves with raised non-slip tracts tend to be more functional since they offer superior comfortable grips on food items and cooking equipment.
