Leather gloves are handy for grilling, especially if you're cooking with things with handles like cast iron skillets. Grill gloves are easily the most important grilling and meat smoking accessory I've purchased. You don't have to think; you just open the lid and grab.
This pair of leather grill gloves are made of durable brown leather, and they give you better dexterity than an oven mitt. You could also use them for indoor cooking. If you had too.
