Around here, we pretty much love grilling in the summer months. But, one thing we had never made is kabobs. I’m not really sure why because #1 – they’ve always been very appealing to me, and #2 – we have kabob sticks.
When I was introduced to Cave Tools and given the opportunity to check out one of their products, I was immediately attracted to the Kabob Skewers Rack.
When I saw that the rack raised the skewers up so that they aren’t laying directly on the grill, I thought it was a totally genius idea. The skewers lay in indents on the rack, and are easy to grab onto (with a hot pad of some kind!) and turn them for even cooking.
The weather here in PA is normally not conducive to grilling at this time of year. So, when the rack arrived, I set it aside, hoping for one warm day to use it. It’s been unseasonably warm – but rainy – the past several weeks. And Brian – my resident griller – doesn’t get home from work ’til after dark.
When I heard that yesterday was to be warm and not rainy, I laid out some chicken to prepare for lunch after church. I cut the chicken in chunks and alternated it on the skewers with pineapple pieces. I marinated it all in a honey teriyaki blend.
We ate them for lunch yesterday and they were pretty much perfection.
See that round disk at the top of the skewers? That’s there to help you push the meat off the skewer and onto your plate. (Again, you’ll need some sort of hot pad.)
Here are just some of the reasons why we love this rack:
1. It’s easy to use.
I had no trouble getting the food onto the skewers, and nothing fell off in the grilling process. The fact that the skewers are raised up off the grill itself makes it much easier to get a hold of them and turn them for even cooking.
2. It’s easy to clean.
Our dishwasher has a name – Gracie. Even though this rack and skewers are dishwasher safe, we had no problem cleaning them by hand, in the sink. That’s the way we roll!
3. The possibilities are endless!
I can see us using this set over and over again! Next, I want to try beef, but I’ve got sausage variations rolling around in my head as well. There are just so many food combinations that could be put together on these skewers for lots of great meals over the summer months.
And, in addition to that, I love that there are 5 skewers (1 for each person in our family) and they can be customized to each person’s individual tastes. We have some picky eaters around here, so the versatility is important!
This would make a great gift!
