I had a hankering for a kabob today. I love meat on sticks. Its just so much more fun. My kids love them too. I often thought if they served salad on sticks I would eat more greens. Probably not but its a nice thought. Its snowing like crazy here today so these were done on my trusty Lil Tex Traeger. I used a mixture of Oak & Hickory Pellets. Super easy to make. Do yourself a favor & double up on this recipe. Freeze a batch for a quick midweek meal. Can be served in a pita with Tzatziki lettuce and thinly sliced red onions.
