  • Keep a little room between ingredients on the skewer. It helps with heat circulation and more even cooking.
  • Make your vegetables around the same size so they all get done at the same time. Alternatively, par bake the larger ingredients, like we do in this recipe for the potatoes.
  • Invest in a meat thermometer, Unless you’re a professional, it can be difficult to judge when the meat is done. The thermometer will take the guess work out of it for you.
