I’ve always been curious about silicone grilling gloves, so when WKC member @fedex posted up an Amazon deal that was too good to pass up I decided to give them a try. This particular offering is made by a company called Ancient BBQ and can be found here: Amazon – Silicone Grilling Gloves
Below is some additional information found on the AncientBBQ website:

So do the gloves really live up to the claims? … Indeed they do!
While recently cooking a pork shoulder I was easily able to pick up the meat and remove it from the grill with only so much as a hint of the heat getting through the glove. Turning chicken wings or other small items is also quite easy as the silicone material is quite pliable. There are small raised dots over the surface of the glove to further protect you from the heat and also to provide some extra grip. Cleanup was simple using a soft bristle dish brush and soapy water.
I was originally skeptical but am now a believer in these gloves and would recommend them to friends at the SALE price on Amazon. At the time of this writing they are being sold for $16 shipped which I feel is a fair price based on the product received. However, the regular list price of $59.99 is far too much in my opinion so hang in there if they are not on sale and wait for a better deal.
