Steven Raichlen knows BBQ and BBQ products and these gloves are a great example of that.
The great looking Steven Raichlen Extra Long Suede Gloves have two contrasting colors: A smooth black suede upper, and a rougher textured tan colored glove and fingers.
At 17.5", these gloves are the longest ones we tested. They are lined with cotton, said to be heat safe to 475°F, and recommended by Cook’s Illustrated magazine, although their reviewers griped that the gloves are not machine washable. As with other leather gloves, you can wipe them off but washing is discouraged.
Pitmaster Club member "Steve B" likes these gloves and comments, “So far I have no complaints. They seem well constructed, comfortable and they do fit my rather large hands. And they do reach up to my elbow.”
