Plank Meatball Kebabs

Meatball kebabs are so versatile, whether preparing for the main course or an appetizer, they can be used in many ways. They are also a great way to introduce people to wild-game due to their sample-size portion. 

In this recipe, we prepare our own sauce, but you can also use your favorite prepared BBQ sauce. Try and pick something with a citrus twist.

Use the suggested vegetables or add fruits or vegetables of choice. These are also great with pineapple chunks. If using wooden skewers in this recipe, make sure to soak them in water overnight.
