Shish Kabob Grilling Baskets

We like to take advantage of the grilling season here in Western New York because around here the snow will be flying before you know it. Fran saw an advertisement for these shish kabob grilling baskets and she knew we had to have them.

Fran bought two sets of four of the grilling baskets. We had them for about three weeks, and I just couldn't wait any longer to give them a try.

I picked up two 10oz. steaks, one Rib Eye, and one Strip steak along with three boneless chicken breasts. For the vegetables, we used one green and one red bell pepper, one large onion, and fresh mushrooms.

Kabob Grilling Baskets:

I cut the steak and chicken breasts into cubes to fit the baskets, about 2-inch cubes. I marinated the steak and chicken overnight in Chiavetta's Barbeque Marinade. This is a perfect marinade for chicken and beef, we use this faithfully.  After marinating, I sprayed the kabob baskets with cooking spray and filled the baskets with the meat. We used six out of the eight baskets we bought.

 The cooking spray makes for easy clean up of the baskets.  Then, I seasoned them with Penzeys Chicago Steak Seasoning.  

Close the top of the basket slide the ring up to lock in place and you're ready to grill. I choose to load the baskets with all meat. But you can alternate meat and vegetables if you like.

 I cleaned the mushrooms and removed the stems, cut the peppers, and onion. I marinated the vegetables for about 30 minutes with an 8oz. bottle  Wegmans Basting Oil. Then, I grilled the vegetables in a separate grilling basket.

This is the end result right out of the kabob baskets. The steak grilled to an internal temperature of 125 degrees for a perfect medium-rare, and the chicken grilled to 165 degrees internal temperature. The vegetables were grilled until they were nice and tender but still a bit crispy.

In my opinion, the Kabob Baskets are amazing, I'll never use skewers again. As long as you spray them with cooking spray before grilling clean up is fairly easy.

Tip: The kabob baskets have wooden handles which makes it difficult to close the grill lid. I used a mini bread pan to stop the grill lid from touching the handles. This kept the grill lid about 3-inches from the handles and allowed me to keep some heat as they grilled.

  1. Wow, Sam. Shish Kabob on the grill made easy by using grilling baskets. I can see why Fran wanted them. No more putting each individual item on a kabob skewer, which is very time consuming. Popping everything into baskets sounds like a real time and effort saver! What will they think of next?

    BTW, fun to see mention of products by Wegmans. Brings back memories of a great grocery store to this displaced New Yorker! :)

  2. You sure know how to make a gal hungry first thing in the morning Sam. These grilling baskets look amazing and I'm sue are so useful. I wish I had a grill to use, but alas I'm not that lucky. Rest assured if I did, I would make sure we had some of these grilling baskets to use. I need to show these to my kids.

  3. I am certain my husband would love the shish kabab grilling baskets, as well as the way you prepared the meat. I like steak medium well. I guess that means the chicken would end up overcooked though. Perhaps, he could make one shish kabob with only steak and I could eat some of his chicken. Btw, I never would have thought to spray them with a cooking spray for an easier clean up, but it makes sense now that you have said it. You always come up with new ideas and recipes that are awesome!

    1. The spray did make for easy clean up. The baskets are a little more difficult to clean and do cost a more but to me it is all well worth it. Okay, here is what you need to do, if the chicken is done first leave the steak on while you take the chicken out of the baskets. You probably need only 2 or 3 more minutes to reach 145 degrees on the steak, that will give a medium to medium well. I don't guess any more, I use my instant read thermometer for everything.

  5. What a great gift idea for the avid griller in the family. I would love to have a set of these kabob grilling baskets. Hope you get to enjoy several more cookouts before the snow flies there. Too late here. The snow started flying at suppertime last night. No grilling for me at the moment.

  6. Sam, great minds and similar tastes, lol! I adore Penzeys Chicago Steak Seasoning, which is tied with Penzeys Mitchell Street seasoning for my favorite beef or pork seasoning. (All of Penzeys spices are so good! ) I also shop at Wegmans a lot, and love their house brand products as well. I’ve had my eye on kabob grilling baskets like these for years, but sadly, there just isn’t a good spot for our decades-old old Weber kettle here, especially since our driveway is on a very steep slope. John and I talked about laying a square of bricks hidden behind one of our huge rhododendrons on the front lawn for the grill, and if we ever do, we’ll definitely be ordering some of those grill baskets!

    1. Margaret, I'm glad to hear somebody else uses Penzeys seasoning. Our daughter introduced us to Penzeys a few years ago and we use them a lot. We love the Galena Street Rib and Chicken Rub. We do most of our shopping at Wegmans, I love their store. I hope you find a place for your grill. Thanks!
