To ensure that kebab ingredients obey when you try to flip them - instead of staying put as the skewer spins - spear them on two skewers. The extra handle also decreases the likelihood of meat or vegetables breaking free and dropping into the coals

Happy 4th July grilling!!

You can also use metal skewers that are flat rather than round to prevent this problem.

Yeah, but I make them sometimes in a large pan, stove top - then I use 2 skewers

Excellent tip! Also, be sure to soak wood skewers in water before use, to prevent burning or overheating.

For the best answers only trained professionals should grill kebabs as to their whereabouts at the time of the crime.
