  • Stove glove

    I am wondering what gloves people use for stove work.

    I tend to look for lighter simpler gear but all suggestions and experiences are welcome, likely someone else will benefit.

    I got these gloves a couple years ago and have been very happy with them until a thumb seam let go last night.

    They are easy on off, have enough dexterity for doing wood processing, reasonably light/compact, affordable, and provide enough protection for me. I can pick up coals, stoke the fire, and even grab the hot pipe to make adjustments.

    I have been considering experimenting with some knit BBQ mittens, I have seen impressive tests of them.

    So, what do you use?

    The pair pictured look OK.

      I have some insulated welding gloves I bought from Princess Auto. They are kept in the stove bag and stay in the tent. I suspect the stitching on welding gloves is better able to handle high temperatures Unfortunately I get very cold painful hands when chopping and sawing wood and have to wear mitts so have a pair of unlined leather "chopper" mitts that i wear over my woolen mitts for that task.

        Looks good... I'm more a fan of light weight mig gloves but these should work just fine!

          I work at a place where I can get my hands on used mig/tig welding gloves, so that is what I use.

            I use any leather glove, something with a little insulation is nice because without it you ain't got much time.
            I really only use mine if something goes wrong, I have to adjust the pipe, or tweak the stove position a little.
            I don't use them for stoking or cooking.
            I have some high heat resistant gloves in the shop that I use for other none stove purposes, but they are all to heavy and bulky for me to pack for such a rare need.

              If you don’t have heavy gloves along how do you carry the hot stove out of the the tent to empty the coals when packing up the tent in the morning? Or do you hang around for it to get cold?

                I sometimes carry a Cold Steel shovel that I use as an ash shovel to clean out the stove.
                My stove also has a handle on the back, so I latch the door and carry it out by the handle, kick the latch open and dump it out that way.
                But my stove is probably smaller and lighter than what a lot of people use too.

              I use a light pair of welding gloves which were provided by the stove maker. They sit by the stove or under it just incase I have to quickly grab the pipe or adjust an unstable stove. Their main purpose to grab a hot stove and take it out of the tent like BV suggests above.

              I did have a really nice pair of gloves given to my by a local fireman, but I haven't been able to locate them.

                Thanks for all the reply. I need to hit the Hardware store this weekend and will checkout their welding gloves.

                  not that I am arguing I am just questioning - aren't welding glove a little overkill? what fire and stove tasks not doable by cheap, light, easy to dry suede work gloves? https://www.homedepot.ca/product/fir...rge/1000539478
                  one pair lasts few seasons, no problem to handle burring wood, hot pots, open and close doors, adjust pipe...

                    See above about carrying a hot stove. I have also had occasion to have to pick up hot coals that have fallen from the open door and even have to remove a log that was cut a little too long long for the firebox. Once in the stove it caught immediately and then we found the door wouldn’t shut. Had to reach in, pull it out and evict the burning log from the tent. Good gloves meant I had more time to not turn a problem into a serious disaster.
                    If you are ever unlucky enough to have a stove pipe separate inside the tent they would also be a life saver.

                      may be it is about sensitivity to temperature. I used those gloves to carry red-white hot rocks from camp fire to sauna tent 4-6 yards away. it was hot but manageable


                      they could be back up for welders just in case.

                        It is often times nice to have leather gloves that have a forearm "cuff" extension on them as that is the area that can come into contact with the sides of the door opening when inserting fuel wood
