    Belated happy Thanksgiving, Gary! Made all the more happy with a feast like that :) 

    I'm particularly impressed with the kababs. Did you use any binder in the mix? Its usually anybody's guess if my seekh kababs will stay on the skewer or not :)

    That's because the one time you made them perfectly and they stayed on the skewer, you had not measured and recorded the ingredients - so now it's not reproducible.

    Bite me :smiley:

    I've tried different binders for kababs (eggs, rice, whole wheat flour, chickpea flour) but don't care for what they do to the taste and texture. The one thing that has been promising is kneading the meat mix until it becomes tacky, like when we made our sausage .

    @Canugghead has been at this for a while, and I'm sure he has tricks up his sleeve that I can learn from!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    @caliking No starch, egg, bread crumb, etc. to bind. You answered your own question ... knead till tacky. The recipe above didn't have water but I added some, sorry didn't measure.

    However, I think cooking them on pellet pooper is one big reason they didn't come loose (except for few odd ones) ... I only needed to flip each once, and no worry with burning skewers.  I was worried they wouldn't stay because the skewer was skinny and tapered.

    It's one of the reasons I chose to cook on Traeger at the fest this year, didn't want to flip/rotate hundreds of appetizer kebabs and wings on the BGE  =)

    Haha, it was two events in one ... I jumped ship and cooked with pre-sold  Traeger + KJ demos. Blasphemy indeed  :)

    With the kind of eats you crank out, you're allowed that :)
