Skewered Meat and Veggies Grilling Tips

Metal or wooden skewers? Which is better when grilling meat and veggies? Players’ choice is my answer, however, if you are using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for 30 mins prior to building your skewers.

Skewered Meat and Veggies Grilling Tips

  1. Make sure your veggies and meats are cut the same size. This will allow for even cooking.
  2. I will often build my skewers in a large pan and season them once they are built. Kosher salt, crushed black pepper, rosemary, and chopped parsley are my seasonings of choice.  Feel free to season as you desire.

Grill over medium heat and rotate the skewers through the cooking process. If the outside is cooking too fast, place the skewers on a piece of foil on your grill. This will buffer the heat and allow the skewered meat and veggies to cook through without burning on the outside.
