bbq skewers

"It's unlikely that a cooking technique as universal as roasting meat on a stick over a fire originated at any single time in any single country. But if it had, Iran would make a likely birthplace.

Grilling has been part of Persian culture for hundreds, probably thousands, of years.

Look at 500-year-old Persian miniatures and you'll often find depictions of servants spit-roasting a chicken for a hunting party or setting skewers of meat above the fire.

The 10th-century poet Ferdowsi makes room in his poetry for a detailed description of a veal marinade made with saffron, rosewater, musk and old wine. And, after all, that all-American cookout favorite "kebab" is the Persian word for grilled meat...."


How to keep kebabs from rolling on the skewers

Standard round skewers do not work well when cooking kebab koobideh. As ground-meat cooks, it becomes slippery. So, when it comes time to turn over the kebab, a round skewer will merely spin inside the meat, making it difficult to cook the food evenly.

So how do you keep kebabs from rolling around the skewer? A flat skewer provides a broader surface for the meat to rest on. As the ground-meat cooks, it won't lose its shape. Most important, flat skewers won't spin inside the meat. This makes turning over kebabs very easy and ensures the food is cooked evenly.

"...I was looking everywhere for wide bbq skewers for my son-in-law for his birthday. He wanted skewers that were wide like his father used to use to make Persian kebabs on. He was very pleased when he opened his present! These were very sturdy and exactly what he wanted."

"... "This skewer is what one needs if they are tired of having the pieces of what you're cooking roll on the skewer when you attempt to turn it to a different cooking postition. Does away with the frustration of trying to keep what you are cooking from rolling to the heavy side as happens with round skewers."

"...These stainless steel jems are simply the best..The quality and workmanship is excellent. Unlike water soaked bamboo skewers that will burn up, you can cook your kabobs on very hot fires and get that crusty exterior that makes em taste great. The meat and veggies will not spin. They are dish washer safe."

"These are great! Bought to replace a small grill set that were constantly spinning on their own or allowing the meat or veggies to spin. Not going to happen with these. They are huge. A friend introduced me to shashlik. I am now trying as many recipes as I can find. Look it up. It's delicious. I would only suggest to make sure you cut your meat or vegetables big enough to cope with the size of the skewer."

"I like this product for many reasons. One was the design for easy storage. It is not a cumbersome one piece frame, and so it could be easily stored in any drawer in the kitchen. The second reason I like it is the notches in the frame allow the skewers to be positioned in 4 ways allowing for proper flipping of the shishkabob to ensure even cooking. The third reason is the flat skewer design. This allowed a meat,vegetable, or fruit to stay in one place, allowing flipping to be an ease."
