If your skewers are wooden, make sure you soak them in water for half an hour before building your kabobs, so they won't burn on the grill. Good combos: Pre-cooked sausage, pineapple chunks, green onion and grape tomatoes or chunks of chicken breasts with sliced peppers and onions. Preheat the grill. Once your kabobs are built, sprinkle them generously with spices and as they cook, baste them with a marinade you like.
