Fire Wire Review & Giveaway -- ENDED


This is our first summer in our new house. DH finally bought a BBQ grill and we have been cooking outdoors at least once a week. Since this is our first BBQ grill , DH is slowly picking up all of the supplies we need. When I realized that we needed some skewers, I immediately reached for Fire Wire. The Fire Wire's flexible cable style skewer allows you to effectively use the space on your grill. Each set comes with 2 skewers and you can actually marinate with them.
Normally I also put red and orange peppers on our Fire Wire, but on the night I took this photo, we just did chicken and mushrooms. I marinated some chicken using lemon juice, salt, pepper and garlic. The chicken turned out amazing.
We really like that the Fire Wire cools down very quickly so we could handle it shortly after the meat is cooked. The needle-like tip makes it very easy to slide the vegetables and meats onto the skewers and to take the food off them too. After we are done, I just washed them in warm soapy water. Besides the fact that these work really well, my favorite thing is that you can reuse these over and over again. When I lived with my parents, we used to use the wooden skewers. Looking back I realized that we were creating a lot of unnecessary waste by using and tossing out these one time use only wooden skewers.

If you have a BBQ grill and you do a lot of outdoor cooking, we recommend checking out the Fire Wire.

Many thanks to Fire Wire. The company has generously offered 1 set of Fire Wire as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).
