Alton Brown is the undisputed king of kitchen hacks, and this one, from his Instagram account, is so simple it's genius. The next time you want to grill kebabs, keep your skewers in a recycled water bottle full of water. It keeps the skewers moist, prevents burning, and a squeeze pushes them up so you can snag one when you need it.
I actually saw this one when he posted it a while ago. It's simple genius -- just make sure you don't keep them in there for too long, you don't want your skewers to start to rot or get mildew-y or anything. We'd suggest putting them in there the day (maybe the night before) you plan to grill and using them up as quickly as possible.
