I mean, this one is just as much about the look as it is about the function. When you’re doing real barbecue, handling a huge hunk of bark-covered, slow-smoked meat is bound to get a little messy. In addition to an apron (you… are wearing an apron, aren’t you?), disposable gloves help keep mop sauces and spice rubs from staining your hands. You’re also, you know, handling raw meat, so be like the pros and keep it sanitary with these.
