We’re incorrigible fans of barbecue in all its forms (even strange ones), which leads us to try out all kinds of barbecue tools and whatnot. One thing you’ll always need, especially when you start contemplating pig roasts and cranking up your ceramic grill to 900 degrees for wood fired pizza, is a great pair of gloves.
The Deluxe Fireplace Gloves ($25), from Spitjack, will give you the kind of protection necessary to tend the flames. They have a full leather palm, foam padding, and a foil layer for heat protection, Kevlar stitching for durability, and are fully lined with felt for comfort. See? Now you have no excuse not to go whole hog.
