veggie and meat kabobs on a grill smoking

Build Your Own Kabob

veggie and meat kabobs on a grill smoking

Grilling calls for a variety of recipes, with kabobs coming in on top! Whether it’s a fajita style skewer or a veggie medley, these tips and tricks will make sure your kabobs are the talk of the BBQ.

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.
