Skewers and Shish Kebabs

Skewers and Shish Kebabs

You may call them shish kebabs or skewers—they’re the same thing. Either way, kebabs are accommodating, easy to customize, and they’re a natural for mixing ingredients and flavors. Wooden skewers are inexpensive and available in your grocery store. Just be sure to soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before using or they’ll burn. If you grill often, invest in a set of metal skewers, which can be reused, require no soaking, and come in a variety of fun shapes and sizes.
