Skewer Recommendation

I got tired of double skewing my kabobs, so I went out on a hunt for some better skewers.

Came across these at Linens & Things. Nice and wide so the food doesn't spin around on ya.

My other choice was a person on Ebay who makes SS ones from scratch. Lost the link though.

I have some skewers that are flat and wide, and it will keep you from having to use double skewers. I don't like the round skewers giving me spinning kabobs.

I like that..... double skewering with "helpers" is even more fun.....
I stopped even bothering to "kebob" because it gets so frustrating. Either you double, which sucks or your food does the hula dance!
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

I have a set of skewers that were handed down from my parents. They are two-foot long pieces of iron rods. They look like the black iron a blacksmith would use. They are square in the cross section.

I find that smaller pieces of meat turn less on the skewer.

I have a set of Coleman double skewers. They really keep everything stable when trying to flip the kabob.

I was not able to find the on the net anywhere but did find a similar product called the Grill Friends Double Kabob Skewer.

I've only boughten kabobs, so they were skewered with those round wooden ones. I reach down there with both hands, grab the ends and roll them over, never leaving the grill surface. Gotta be quick.

Cool pic Charlie. Nice craftmanship on those skewers! How much would you charge for a set of 4?

Here's the measurements. Since they are so wide, I picked up a thinner set from Lowes for smaller things like shrimp, etc.
