It’s summer time which means grill time. Let’s get cookin’ with a great new kabob recipe!

Whether you’re looking for a new recipe or a twist on an old one, this kabob recipe will surely please a crowd. Sweet sesame summer kabobs can be prepared vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, or with your favorite meat.

Lyndsay Gower, one of our marketing gurus here at KaTom checked out this recipe over the weekend and seems hooked. She tried it with chicken but agreed that the flavors would pair well with just about any protein or veggie combination.

The real star of this meal was the Primo ceramic grill she prepared her dinner on. The even heating and use of cedar chips yielded both vegetables and proteins cooked to perfection. Instead of having to battle with proper temperatures and hot spots in the grill, the convection-like heat had Lyndsay impressing her family with what will become a summer regular.

Though Lyndsay used the Kamado, Primo grills come in a variety of sizes including the Kamado, Oval Junior, and Oval XL. Each size can also be paired with a variety of accessories from thermometers, to holding fixtures, and even side shelving. Primo grills offer everything your friends and family need for a delicious summer grill out.
