Stick it on the grill
Firing up the family barbeque becomes a little more adventurous with the introduction of Skewers & Spice, 100 percent all-natural birch skewers with an included spice packet. Appropriate for seafood, chicken, pork, beef, or vegetables, the single-use skewers should be soaked for 10 minutes before use; then the seasoned food can be threaded on them and placed on the grill or in the oven, advises Bogart, Ga.-based Fire & Flavor. Varieties are Everyday Rub, Mustard Herb, and Asian Rub. A package of eight skewers retails for a suggested $4.99. Find out more by visiting www.fireandflavor.com or calling (866) 728-8332.
