post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I want to make Kabobs and was wondering if anyone knew of any skewers that are 2 feet long? I am having a party and want people to be amazed at my skewers.:lips:

I get skewers from markets which have Russian, Persian, Armenian and Middle-Eastern clientele and many are 2' long. They sell for around $2 each here in Southern California. Typically the skewers are about 3/8" - 1/2" wide, and have twisted metal or wooden handles.

Good luck,

What's the big deal? Just look up skewers on Amazon. I found two kinds that fit your bill right off the bat. One was a set of "Steve Raichlen" skewers at around $15 for six 18" skewers, and a set of "Rosewood Handle" skewers which were selling for around $12.50 for four 22" skewers. Plus, long, wide-bladed skewers are available in lots of places if you know where to look.

Get wide-blades so food won't spin on them. Don't buy (or Mickey-Mouse) round-stock, at those lengths it will drive you nuts when you try to cook.

If all else fails, go to a fabricator and have him cut you some stainless 3/8 or 1/2 x 1/16 or 3/32 bar-stock with a 45* angle at one end. You don't need handles, you can use pliers. Unless you know someone with a (rudimentary) metal shop, at the end of the day, it's probably cheaper to buy from Amazon.

You can certainly do better than dowels and coat hangers.

Ya, in our nieghborhood there is a few middle eastern type supermarkets. That is where I got mine. They are made specifically for what you want to do, so there is no bending, falling off, twisting.

If you really have a problem finding them, PM me and I will get them for you and mail them off.
