21 #MealPrep Ideas That Are Anything but Boring

Wooden Skewers vs. Metal Skewers

What Kind of Skewers Do You Grill With?

During summertime, there's nothing more natural to me than grilling kebabs for dinner. They're quick-cooking, simple to construct, and I think everything tastes better on a stick anyway. Even though you have to soak them for half an hour before use, I prefer to use wooden skewers; I stay away from metal ones because they conduct heat. However, my parents have the metal kind and love that they're reusable. Which do you prefer?

Metal, although when RVing I use wood. On the millions of cooking shows that I view, someone said "leave spaces between your food and it will cook more evenly". I tried it and it worked for me!

I prefer the wooden ones, but my bf hates them and wants to get metal ones... so far we haven't bought any though.

I use metal. I like that I don't have to soak them and the ones I have are longer then any wood ones I have ever used. The main reason I stopped using wood ones was because there are a big waste since you only use them once.
