FireWire–Flexible Skewer

While shopping for a smoker, we came across some grilling skewers made of  3/32″ stainless steel pre-formed cable. They have a loop on one end and
a fixed probe on the other.  With meat and veggies strung on the
cable, the loaded cable can be dangled, loop-side-down, and formed to
fit onto the grill any which way that works best, straight out, serpentine
or circled–with the probe end extended over the edge of the grill grate,
if you wish. Since stainless steel is non-reactive, raw product, skewer
and all, can be marinated if you are using only one marinade for both
veggies and meat (not to my liking). They are really long–30 inches!
Sufficient to load enough food for two on each skewer.  Manufactured
by Inno-Labs (, the FireWire won a kitchen accessory
award last year. Big Green Egg vendors have them and others too. Preformed cable is expensive–the skewers are $20 the pair. But neato!
