Summer is the peak season for barbecues. As soon as the sun goes down in the evening, there is still the residual temperature of being roasted on the road during the day. After getting off work, invite friends and colleagues to have a barbecue together. Many people eat barbecue in addition to the strong aroma of charcoal grilling, but also the satisfaction of sticking skewers. Some friends will find that some barbecue restaurants use wooden sticks, some use iron sticks, and the types of barbecues worn with sticks of different materials are also different. For those who want to open a barbecue restaurant, it is necessary to know the basic knowledge of how to choose iron and wooden sticks. Next, I will tell you about the knowledge of barbecue sticks.

For barbecue restaurants, the choice of sticks also has a great impact on the taste of barbecue and the taste of diners’ skewers.
When making kebabs or larger ingredients such as chicken wings and drumsticks, it is more suitable to use an iron skewer.
1.Iron sticks are easier to wear than wooden sticks.
2.The above-mentioned ingredients take a long time to bake to be fully cooked. If you use a wooden skewer, it will be easily roasted and broken. At the same time, the metal has strong thermal conductivity, and at the same heat, using an iron stick will cook faster and reduce the adhesion of the meat to the stick.
3.For barbecue restaurants, a lot of sticks are needed every day. The surface of the iron sticks is smooth and not easy to hide dirt and dirt. It is easier to clean and store for secondary use, and it is more environmentally friendly.


Bamboo skewers are basically used for the roast meat packaged by the diners or the dressing of most vegetables. The iron stick is relatively smooth, which means that some vegetables are not suitable for wearing with iron sticks. For example, vegetables such as cabbage have a lot of water. It is difficult to fix with iron sticks and easy to slide down, and it is difficult to turn over on the oven. The friction of the wooden stick itself will hold the vegetables better. Secondly, the use of thick wooden sticks can serve the purpose of strong skewers, that is, the meat of the same size. The thicker the sticks used, the bigger the skewers.

How to prevent wooden skewers from breaking when grilling?
Some barbecue beginners often encounter the phenomenon that the wooden stick is roasted and broken. To prevent sticks from burning off, do the following:
1.Before using wooden skewers to wear dishes, soak them in salt water. This can not only effectively prevent barbs from appearing on the wooden stick, but also prevent the stick from being roasted.
2.The length of the meat should preferably be about the same as the width of the barbecue stove, and the sticks should be exposed as little as possible before and after.
3.Pay attention to the control of the charcoal fire. If the charcoal is spread in different lengths and sizes when grilling things, or the charcoal is not fully burned, the oil drips on the charcoal and it will catch fire, which may also cause the wooden skewer to be roasted.
