    Jim's Chicken Shawarma and Kabob Marinade

    I've made several batches recently of chicken shawarma and veggie kabobs, using a marinade my wife always loved, that is in her cookbook on a little card that says "Carla's BBQ Marinade". Carla is her sister, and she probably got this card from her 20+ years ago. I felt it was lacking in areas, so have tweaked it with my own additions of ginger and toasted sesame oil, and its got a great flavor with those additions. May try a little garlic, but for now, thought I would share.

    First, the results:

    Jim’s Shawarma & Kabob Marinade

    1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
    1/3 Cup vegetable oil (I usually use olive oil)
    1/4 cup honey
    1/4 cup vinegar
    1 teaspoon curry powder
    1 teaspoon freshly grated or minced ginger
    1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

    Marinade for chicken or veggie kabobs

    Mix ingredients, preferably emulsifying in a blender. Marinate chicken for 4 hours or overnight, discarding marinade that chicken was in. Grill chicken shawarma style or on skewers. Brush reserved marinade on vegetable skewers before and during grilling. Also works well as a dipping sauce.

    This recipe as written makes enough to marinate about 2.5 pounds of boneless skinless chicken thighs. I quadrupled the recipe in order to grill 5 pounds of boneless skinless chicken - marinated overnight in half - and the number of veggie skewers shown above, reserving some that was not used on the skewers as a dipping sauce.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
