These long, thin spikes used for grilling small pieces of food can be made of metal or wood. I have some larger stainless steel skewers that I use for recipes like the Lamb Kabobs. For smaller items I like to use 10 - 12 inch wooden skewers. These are widely available at most grocery stores and are inexpensive. If you use wood, soak them in water to keep them from burning.

Dr. Gourmet Recommends:

This is a good set of inexpensive 14 inch stainless skewers.
