Before you begin building your ‘bobs, keep in mind a few tips: cut ingredients to the same size for even cooking; more dense foods like potatoes, carrots, or squash may need a little pre-cooking or parboiling; oil your grill first. Perhaps most importantly, remember this: If your skewers are wood, soak ’em. if they are metal, don’t touch them with your bare hands once the grilling begins.
