The Man Law BBQ Products High Heat Gloves are the most unique gloves we tested, looking like something astronauts would wear on the moon.
They come in three sizes, are said to be heat-resistant up to 572°F, and are 13″ in length. The gloves are lined with 100% rayon/cotton for a comfortable feel, and the exterior is constructed of food rated silicone. While the sleeves of the gloves are smooth and easily cleaned, the fingers and palms have thick ridges to help hold items, and the ridges easily trap food and grease. They can be hand washed with soap and water and laid out to dry.
Heat resistance. 54 seconds
Dexterity. No problem using tongs, but some difficulty using a knife
Comfort. Slightly uncomfortable and awkward at first
Food handling. No problem and gloves merely got warm
Prices vary. About $38.57 for small/medium; $30.00 for medium/large; $34.99 for large/extra large.

The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
