Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Back to the basics - Shish kabob

Nothing special but I like that the tomatoes, bell pepper, and jalapeño slices came from the garden.
Filet mignon meat was marinated in JD Smokehouse BBQ sauce, bourbon, brown sugar and garlic powder.

  • Shish Kabobs are made with lamb.  You have Beef Kabobs.  One of my Arab friends gave me a tip for tender Shish Kabobs.  Smear the kabobs with peanut butter and put them in the fridge for several hours.  After you grill them you will not taste the peanut butter, but, wow, what a great flavor and tenderness.


    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    The culinary world is full of terms that aren't
    technically correct, but are accepted. Example:  Fajitas made with anything other than skirt steak should actually be called carne asada, and not fajitas. Fajitas come from the Spanish word "faja" (belt or girdle), which also refers to the cut of beef called skirt steak.

  • Sorry Sam you got it wrong. Kebab refers to meat on a skewer shish is the persian equivilent of six which refers to the number of pieces of meat on the skewer

  • I've had kebabs made by both Persians and Arabs in their respective native countries.

    If you ask for kebab, they bring you meat on a stick. Sometimes it's lamb. Sometimes it's beef. Sometimes it's hand formed ground meat and sometimes it's cut up pieces like VI did.

    I dated a lady named Kebab for a few years, but I won't go into that.  :D

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    Thanks for posting, I was debating what to cook Sunday and that settled it.  Out of curiosity, I see you did those direct, but at what temperature?

  • Great looking cook, whatever the purists want to call it, although I think the origin may have been lamb/goat based 'cause that's what was eaten in most of the middle east centuries ago. In today's use the term Shish Kabob seems to mean meat and veggies on a stick. 

    VI - how do you keep your tomatoes from exploding on the grill? We tend to use sirloin (hit it with the Jaccard) peppers, onion. I do the tomatoes on a separate skewer, over the cooler part of the grill to warm but not split them.

  • @CPARKTX I cooked them at about 400°, direct.

    @Skiddymarker Yes, I've had them explode also.  These tomatoes are firmer than the typical cherry tomatoes.  They're more like a plum tomato, but smaller. I asked for Romas at the nursery, but this is all they had.  Works out real well for the kabobs.

    What Travis said. My aunt told me the same thing, as she has traveled extensively in Europe and the near-Middle East while working for National Geographic. Sometimes it is called shawarma, sometimes it is called al pastor. It is even called a gyro or a pūpū.

    In Turkey, "Şiş kebap" is a dish consisting of lamb on a skewer. Turkey is neither Persian or Arabic.

    This seems eerily similar to the "chili vs meat and bean stew" argument....
