Weber 6688 kabob skewers are made from stainless steel and are about 11” long. There are four steel skewers in a pack. The design is a simple piece of flat metal with a twist at one end to form a handle.
I’ve got to say, when I first picked up these bbq skewers I thought they’d broken, or there were parts missing, and I started searching around for the rest. But no, what you see is what you get. Which is basically four pieces of flat steel with a twist at one end. At the other end, where the point should be, is instead a blunt. Try loading anything even remotely tough and that blunt is going nowhere.
Once you’ve managed to load up the food on the kebab skewers, and got it on the grill, you’ll immediately spot another problem, how to turn the food. I found two methods for this. One is to put on a pair of oven mitts and grab the end and turn. The other is to use tongs to do the same thing, but this isn’t easy.
I’m not sure where the designer was the day they made these, or the quality control people, but basically I could send one of my kids out to the garage and get them to make me something better in about half an hour.
At the end of the day, a kabob skewer is a simple item, and not that tricky to make. Weber have essentially invented the metal bamboo kabob skewer here, and are trying to sell them to you as some kind of sophisticated item. Personally, I expect more than a piece of flat metal with a twist in it and a blunt end from Weber.
There are better, cheaper, far more practical grill skewers out there, any one of which is preferable to these fancy nails.
