Lamb Kebabs

I am doing some lamb kebabs tonight...lamb chunks with bell peppers, onions and mushrooms...seared for 6 to 8 minutes at 700F. Will that high temp char up the veggies too much? Maybe a lower temp, around 550F, would be better. Any thoughts on this?

    JimW,
    I haven't done lamb, but with beef/pork/chicken, I have been grilling at 450-500 for 5 or 6 minutes a side. The veggies do get charred on the edges. I started cooking the meat and veggies seperately most of the time.. I lay the meat over the hottest coals, and the veggies in the cooler areas.[p]HTH

    Nature Boy,
    Thanks. I'll have to try that trick.

    JimW,
    It works really well. Another possibility is to put some slices of vivalia onion in between the meat...even if they get a bit charred, they will add flavor to the meat.
    Have fun!
