I apologize in advance for the rather neophyte question, but can someone explain to me what makes for a great kebab?
Again not to diminish the quiddity of the kebab, but at its essence isn’t it just grilling meat over an open flame? With the only twist being the skewer? So wouldn’t it come down to just (1) quality of meat and (2) seasoning or marination of that meat?
Is there something else I am missing? I feel like there has to be because the kebabs that I’ve thought were great have all seemed a bit more elevated than typical grilled meat.
(Not necessarily asking about how to make kebabs at home, although that information would be enlightening as well. More curious as to just what makes a good kebab good - be it at home or at a restaurant.)
