Gloves for Hot BBQ and Cold Beer?!?

StoneBreaker Tailgaiting Gloves

When do work gloves become “fun” gloves? When they include a bottle opener!

StoneBreaker Tailgating Gloves are designed for the tailgating crowd. These gloves pulls triple duty; keeping hands warm in the winter, protecting them from grill flames and hot dishes and most importantly, the ability to pop the top on the coldies.

These 100% percent leather gloves showcase an extended cuff to keep arm hairs unsinged, a plastic grommet hole so that they can easily hang next to the other grilling tools and a custom stamped, hex nut, aluminum bottle opener in the palm of the right glove.

Now, I can guess what you are thinking, “Do I really need a pair of gloves just for grilling and drinking?” Well, I admit they are a novelty item but, I did find them to be a welcome addition to my grilling arsenal.

I have a propane-assisted grill and use a chimney to start the coals and then dump them into the baskets. Normally I’d use the old oven mitts to reach into the flames but, they are a bit awkward and don’t provide the same flexibility as the gloves.

StoneBreaker Tailgating Gloves Test

To test how much heat they/I could endure, the temperature gauge was redlined and I placed my gloved hand on the dome for 10 seconds. I could DEFINETLY feel the heat but I didn’t get burned.

Built In Bottle Opener

The StoneBreaker Tailgating Gloves have a built-in bottle opener that took some getting used to. I struggled with the choice of using my gloved hand to open the bottle or, use the bottle to leverage the lid off. I found that keeping my hand in place and moving the bottle was easier and provided better line of sight. The company recommends making a fist and rolling the wrist backwards.

Rob Foster

After purchasing a 100+ year-old home, it quickly become apparent that he'd need to learn a thing or two about renovation. As with many who start with great ambitions, Rob soon found out that it takes twice as long and costs twice as much to get things done right. Plus, for every problem you fix, there are many more lurking behind the walls. It was while working on his house that he was able to marry his passion for renovation with his professional life as a public relations consultant. For the past seven years, he has become the go-to guy in the building products PR sector, having worked with Gorilla Glue, TimberTech, Robert Bosch, Skil, C.H. Hanson, Husqvarna, and (currently) the media relations expert for Senco. Now, after putting a whole host of projects under his belt, Rob will be sharing his experiences with us, having kept abreast of the industry from the perspective of a remodeler and manufacturer's representative for the past twelve years.
