I agree with Craig.

I grew up in an Armenian household where shish kebab (always with lamb) was a regular meal. My dad, a chef, always cooked them on the grill. First he grilled bell peppers, onions and tomatoes and removed them to a covered bowl to steam so my mom could peel them. Then the meat skewers would go on the grill with just a thin piece of onion between each kebab.

As a kid growing up, I didn't know there was a specific reason it was done this way. After a failure or two on my own, I figured it out.

I've been making these kebabs for over a decade and this method, with the items cut to the sizes specified, works well for me. As with anything, YMMV

I have no doubt you have it figured out. I was not attacking your method.

As Craig said, if you don't want to figure out the size ratios, as you did, it's simpler to do things separately.

I didn't think you were. It just seemed like an odd thing to say since I *have* figured it out
