It’s frustrating when grilling anything on a skewer, generally it tends to light on fire or burn horrifically, and the metal skewers? Who wants to do dishes?! Brilliant, mad genius, Ted Reader has the solution. A vertical plank to hold your skewered food upright.
Always soak the plank and the skewers prior to grilling.
When skewering meats leave 1–2 inches of open space at the pointed end of the skewer so that it will fit in the plank’s support hole.
Use skewers that are 8–10 inches long so that you can leave space on the blunt end of the skewer as well. This makes for great presentation, and guests can just grab a skewer off the plank.
Make sure that there is clearance between the top of the skewer and the lid of your grill.
Grilling is quite the adventure. When I hear of new ways to do it and new techniques to try, well I am all over it. This is no different. What crazy contraption have you created to make your grilling more fun or easy? I would love to hear!

With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too.View Details
