    Recipe Tips

    Prepare kabobs as directed, substituting 2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the sirloin steak.

    To broil kabobs instead of grilling them, assemble kabobs as directed, then place on rack of broiler pan. Broil, 5 to 7 inches from heat, for 6-10 minutes for medium doneness (140°F), turning and brushing occasionally with barbecue sauce.

    To make BBQ Grilled Shrimp Kabobs, replace steak with shrimp and substitute pineapple chunks for the mushrooms and zucchini. Arrange 2 lbs of cleaned, large shrimp on skewers alternately with onion wedges, red pepper strips and pineapple chunks. Grill over medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes, or until shrimp turn pink, turning and brushing occasionally with barbecue sauce.

The Best Way to Grill Beef Kabobs

When grilling kabobs, you want to keep different ingredients (beef, chicken, veggies, seafood, etc.) on separate sticks as they will each have different cook times.

Before you preheat the grill, make sure to brush the cooking grate clean. Preheat the grill for 10-15 minutes before putting the kabobs on.
