@jay1924 I actually pull cast iron pans out of the grill after they have been on direct heat at 450 deg. +. I can comfortably carry the pan from the grill into my kitchen.
I absolutely use them to pull smoked meat directly out of the pit. I wear them to actually pull pork, hold a rack of ribs or brisket flat while carving, etc.
Sizing is tough, but I think i made the right choice going with large. They only offer 2 sizes that I can tell - LG & XL. I was afraid if I went to XL, I would lose some of the dexterity (if that is the right word). For reference, when I wrap a tape measure around the widest part of my palm it is just a shade under 9". The gloves are a little tight to pull off especially when they get a little greasy, but I think the 10" gloves would be a bit too floppy if you will.
