MR. GRILL SAID KNOCK YOU OUT!

Every once in a while a note pops into the TYWBBQ mailbox asking if we would be interested in field testing some type of rub, sauce or equipment in our R&D Lab located in the rural retreat of Sloatsburg, NY. These people probably do their homework on us and realize that we are the most electrifying BBQ team on the eastern seaboard.  They see the pictures on our site, they checkout the recipes and marvel at our vast array of hardware pillaged from NEBS and KCBS events up and down the east coast and think...I wonder if these Qonnoisseur's will like my product?  Most companies in the game realize that a stamp of approval from the Hanging Pigs means they can skip the NASDAQ and jump right to the Fortune 500! Yes--we are that full of ourselves which brings us to our latest review.
A representative from Mr. Grill contracted us asking if we would be willing to give some of their new products the once over.  The TrashMan has a policy of not turning down free hooch so after a few emails back and forth Mr. UPS dropped off a pair of Mr. Grill's new kevlar and nomex grill gloves.  Out of the box, these babies are thicker than my winter gloves and fit my large to massive hand quite well.  You can see in the picture above the silicone weave pattern that gives these mitts a nonslip surface.  The construction and stitching oozed quality but keep in mind I do cook on a recycled garbage can and before Mr. Grill came into my life used a $2 set of welding gloves from Harbor Freight!!  That being said--Stevie Wonder could see that these gloves are built to last.
OLD vs NEW--NO CONTEST!!
In celebration of the temperature actually being above freezing for once this month, I decided to put the gloves through their paces by cooking up some swine, yard bird and cornbread.  These gloves were fantastic at allowing me to rotate my grate position on my UDS without slipping or burning myself.
I jacked up the heat in the can to 375 to cook the cornbread and was able to grab the rack and bread pan with no problem at all.  Makes sense since these things are rated at 450 degrees.  The level of protection and dexterity that these gloves provided made my cook much easier than normal.  If only they came with a built in timer preventing me from vaporizing the cornbread!!!!  I guess no product is perfect.
The grill gloves from Mr. Grill get a big lanky thumbs up from the TrashMan and my highest recommendation.  MRSP on the set is $39.95...well worth it for the serious BBQ guy.  I can already see having to fight off the GranPappy of Pork and my other teammates for sole possession of the gloves in between contest time.  Good thing I've been practicing my Muay Thai boxing along with my Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I bet you'll be seeing these gloves in the Octagon in no time.
