Onion Skewers

When using bamboo or wooden skewers the skewers should always be pre-soaked in water before use to help prevent burning but due to the time required to cook sometimes they will still burn. A simple solution is to fold over a long piece of foil to create a heat shield to prvent the skewers burning. Simply line one edge of the grill with the guard and place the kebabs so that the meat is over the heat and the skewers over the guard.
