Good morning to you all!
Here at our house, we have almost made it all the way through all of the first week of school craziness! We did all the last minute shopping and appointments for the dentist, eye doctor, orthodontist and whatever else needed checking before school started last week, and now we have just about finished up this first week for all of the kids. It was a busy couple of weeks, and Don’s school district started a whole week before our kids did, so it’s been a tiny bit hectic!
Thankfully, we have some great go-to meals that are fast and easy to prepare, and they’re great for this time of year. Kabobs are one of our favorite things to do in the summer especially, because we love the mix of meat and grilled veggies, and they’re fun to eat! You can marinate them or just cook them as is, and either way they are fantastic!
Recently I had the opportunity to try out another Cave Tools product, and since we loved their BBQ set over the summer, we couldn’t wait to see what their Kabob Skewers Rack had in store for us! Prior to getting the Kabob Skewers Rack, we would use wooden skewers whenever we do kabobs, and it’s frustrating to have the meat sliding off the stick as we’re trying to cook them, and it’s hard to slide the meat off the stick once it’s cooked on there. Additionally, it’s very hard to get them evenly cooked, as they sit right on top of the grill grates.
This very affordable Cave Tools Kabob Skewers Rack had features and benefits that would ease our kabob cooking frustrations and we were anxious to try it out. I was thrilled to find out that it’s completely dishwasher safe, and it comes with a Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee. I love companies that stand behind their products. I also love companies that include recipes with their products and this product came with 25 recipes to try!
Don was anxious to try out the rack on the grill, and he was really pleased with the fact that the meat was not directly on the grill grates, thanks to the rack that keeps them just the right distance off the grates yet provides a great finished cooked product. He said it was the best, most evenly cooked meat he’s ever done on the grill, thanks to the rack.
The set comes with five flat skewers, which is perfect for our family of five, since everything seems to always come in a four-pack, everywhere we go. The skewers each have a little disc on them which can be used to slide your meat right off the skewer and onto the plate. That was ultra convenient!
Each skewer also has a locking mechanism to keep it in place, which was great and tricky at the same time. It was great because the skewers didn’t slide around or come off of the rack while cooking, but a little bit tricky because they get hot and to unlock them to turn them for one of the eight cooking positions was a little bit tough. However, with a set of tongs and a potholder, it can be done, and the even grilling made it worth it.
If I could make one recommendation about the product it would be that we wished it came with some sort of dish or tray that the rack would fit onto for setting up the kabobs and carrying them out of the house and to the grill. We ended up finding a Pyrex glass dish that was the perfect size so that the handles of the rack fit on the handles of the dish and the chicken juice could drip down into the Pyrex without the food sitting in it or having anything dripping onto the floor as we carried the food outside.
At such a busy time of year, this set made a quick meal even better, and I can see us getting a lot of use out of the Cave Tools Kabob Skewers Rack in the future. So far, we are big fans of the Cave Tools products! I hope that you’ll check out their site to see all that they have to offer. If you are a fan of using Amazon to order your products, you can find the Cave Tools Kabob Skewers Rack there as well!
Enjoy the rest of the week and this upcoming long weekend!
