Editor's Qs

Will soaking skewers in water keep them from burning?

All the recipes say it, right? Soaking skewers in cold water will prevent them from catching fire on the grill. It might delay it a little longer, but it won't keep them from catching fire.

Think about this for a minute. The amount of water that a bamboo skewer can hold after soaking probably won't amount to much more than a teaspoon full. If you expose that to the heat of a grill, it will dry out and catch fire. It's just a matter of time, how hot the fire is, and how close you put it to the fire.

It's still a good idea to soak your skewers before use, though. Just don't be misled to think they won't burn. Another thing that you may want to try is to place a piece of aluminum foil under the ends to protect them.

As a general rule for skewers, use metal for high heat items like beef, and bamboo for lower temperature cooking like shrimp and seafood.

The Challenge Continues.

I don't want to give you the idea that I can't be stumped, but... let's see what happens.
