How to cook shish kabobs on a gas grill

To all BBQ lover, who doesn’t love kabobs well “burnt” on the grill!

It doesn’t matter if its vegetables, meat or even fruits… Just imagine mixing your favorite pork tenderloin with green peppers and juicy pineapple. Grill them over the heat and “POP” - here comes the tasty kabobs dish for the day!

Grill shish kabobs is a fun and simple grill meal to make.

All you need is

  • Wooden or metal shish kebab skewers
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Chicken, Beef, vegetables and fruit of your choice
  • Ziplock plastic bags
  • Marinade
  • Pastry brush

Preparing the kabobs

There are really no limit to what combination you are doing. You can mix the meat with bell peppers, zucchini, potatoes, small tomatoes, pineapples, mushrooms, peaches and much much more…

Never let anything limit your kabobs imagination!

And with all the meat, vegetables and fruits combine, you have to get them to have the flavor - which is to marinate them.

Once you have all of them cut into cube shape or about 1 – 2 inch squares size, get ready your marinade sauce in a ziplock bag.

Now place your meat and vegetables into the bag. Seal it and leave it in the refrigerator for about 12 hours.

Preparing for the Grill

You have settled the ingredient for the meal, now is the tools.

If you are using wooden or bamboo kabob skewers, make sure you soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before sending them to the gas grill. This is to prevent them from catching fire from the heat.

And if you are using metal skewers, spray some nonstick cooking spray on it so that your meat will not stick to the skewers when cooked.

You can now slide your meats, vegetables and fruits onto the kabob skewers. Based on your preference, you can slide the different ingredients and leave a slight space between each of the ingredient (like meat, pepper, pineapple, tomatoes, meat, so on and so for…)

After you have taken care of the skewers, now is your grill.

If you are using nonstick spray, then spray it on the pastry brush and brush it on your grill grates.

Now pre-heat your gas grill to medium heat for about 15 minutes till the grilling surface has the heat.

Grilling Time

When the grill is all set, you may place your kabobs stick onto the grill.

By now, you should be hearing a sizzling sound coming from the juicy sauce when touching the grill (I love that sound)!

Leave some space between each kabob sticks and cover the grill to cook.

Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, turning kabobs 2 or 3 times.

Once the four sides of the kabob is grilled, remove one stick and check if it’s fully cook.

You may also separate meat on one skewer and vegetables on another skewer. Because in this way, you can have a better control of the heating times as meat and vegetables have different cooking time.

Time for some delicious flavored BBQ Kabob!
