Having a barbecue usually means you’ll be drinking while you cook. For this reason alone, the Pit Mitt is a good idea.

It’s smooth, earthy and delicious as hell.

A little Kahlua & milk in the mustache is one thing, but the Dude would not be down for Sombrero rings on the table or spills on the rug. Definitely not the rug. If you want to keep the whole living room tied together, get a stack of letter-press Lebowski paper coasters. No mess, no stress.
