I was watching a neighbor grill assorted types of meat kabobs on our shared apartment community gas grill, and noticed that he was using metal skewers for some and bamboo skewers for others.
When I teased about how he must not have enough metal skewers for the amount of food he was grilling, he slyly smiled. He explained that he uses bamboo for beef because he likes his beef medium rare. Makes a lot of sense!
This was a light bulb moment for me because, when using metal, it would indeed transfer a lot more heat into the interior than bamboo!
