Fire Pit Summer Kabobs

Fire Pit Summer Kabobs

Kabobs are one of the most straightforward recipes to follow while also being able to feed a crowd. No matter what meat or vegetables you have on hand, place it on a skewer and put it over the fire. This can be an excellent summer staple for the whole family. You can also customize them with whatever you prefer! These kabobs will cook quickly on a cooking grate over a wood-burning fire pit.

For all these recipes you will need skewers. Make sure to soak the skewers in water for at least 30 minutes before placing your ingredients.

Here are our recommended combinations and how to make them!

Steak Kabobs

What you need:

- 1.5lbs steak

- 3 Bell peppers

- 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

- ¼ cup Soy Sauce

- 1 tbsp Honey

- 2 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice

- 1 tbsp Minced Garlic

- Garlic powder

- Salt/pepper


  1. First, you will need to marinate your steak. Whisk together the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, lemon juice, honey, and minced garlic in a medium-size bowl.
  2. Chop the steak into 1 ½ inch pieces and place it in a gallon-size Ziploc bag. Pour marinade over the top and seal the bag taking as much air out as possible. Then place the Ziploc bag into the refrigerator and let marinate for 3-5 hours.
  3. Chop bell peppers and the onion till you have an even amount of 1 ½ chunk. Then drizzle them with olive oil and add salt, pepper, and onion powder.
  4. Using presoaked wooden skewers or metal skewers, build your kabob by alternating between steak, pepper, onion, mushroom, and so on or however you would like to create them!
  5. Place the kabobs onto your fire pit grate and cook until the steak temperature is at 140-145 degrees for medium, turning the kabobs occasionally.
