Kabobs (chunks of skewered meat or vegetables) are an international delight and a staple of any barbecue experience. In North America, grills have grates, but in much of the world, grilling is done on flat skewers over a grate-less grill. This system is especially useful when grilling delicate ground meat kebabs or fish that is prone to stick to a grill grate. The Charcoal Companion & Steven Raichlen Best Of Barbecue Kabob Rack raises the skewer and kabob above the grate, enabling grate-less grilling on a conventional grill. The rack’s design allows for complete and easy rotation of skewers so food cooks evenly on all sides. And the notches in the rack hold the skewers steady without slipping or spinning. The set includes six flat, sturdy extra wide skewers. Middle Eastern kofta kabobs, Central Asian seekh kabobs, chunks of beef or pork, fish, even wet vegetables, like tomatoes and mushrooms won't slip or spin as they do on thin conventional skewers. Turn these skewers without worrying about losing food. And unlike ordinary skewers, these all-metal handles won’t burn. Each skewer measures 3/8 inch wide by 17 inches long. Dishwasher safe. Clean as you would any stainless steel product. Dry well after each use. Please note: Rack and skewers get hot – use caution when handling.
