Kabob Grilling 101
Preheat the grill until you reach a consistent temperature before placing any skewers on it. We recommend around 375 degrees.
Be sure to cut your meat and vegetables into similar sizes so they can cook evenly.
Assess the space on the grill, and cut your meat and vegetables larger than the space between the griddles so they have a larger surface area of heat.
Submerge your wooden skewers in water before cooking to avoid burning the wood.
In order to create the desired grill marks, be sure to let your kabob settle and cook long enough before rotating them.
Add some olive or vegetable oil onto your kabobs before placing them on the grill.
It is helpful to set a timer with each turn to ensure each side of the kabob gets even heat.
Grilling your kabob at a consistent medium heat than cranking the heat up too high. This will help you avoid a tough and burned kabob.
Average Cooking Times
Most meats cook for around 12-15 minutes.
Fish should take around 10 minutes.
Veggies should take around 8-10 minutes.
