Always soak wood skewers in cold water before grilling. This will help prevent the skewers from burning or catching on fire while they are on grill. Your fingers tips will thank you when you go to remove the skewers from the grill.
Don’t overcook your shrimp. Shrimp cook quickly, and only take about 2–3 minutes to cook per side. You will know they are fully cooked when the shrimp turns pinkish on the outside, and white on the inside.
Make your grill grates nonstick by simply cutting a raw potato in half, inserting a fork into the end of the potato, and rubbing the exposed flesh of the potato down across the grates. The heat from the grill extracts the starch in the potato creating a shield on the grates that help prevent food from sticking to them.
