made some giant metal skewers today
 
So i was at home depot and i found some plain flat steel and some scape wood on discount. so i bought it and made 4 24inch metal skewers. They are pretty cool. look like giant swords. haha

hopefully it was ok to use non stainless steel and non galvanized steel. just plain steel. Hope i dont get sick. totally forgot about that. any info on that would be nice. I imagine i will be fine though. I mean the weber kettles charcoal grate is plain steel. But then again i dont cook food on it. haha

Mild steel is the way to go. They will work fine I think.

Awesome. Im excited to use them. It will make it not as painful to have skewers now over an open fire haha

Matt those look nice! Great idea too!

Heck yes, I use cold rolled/mild steel for everything BBQ unless I need stainless (ouch, pricey). Just make sure you burn the oil and grundge off that steel before you slide on a piece of meat. Very nice!

Thanks guys. I was tired of getting burned from the little skewers i had. So i wanted to make some larger ones haha. Gonna use them with pineapple and maybe some gyro meat haha

Ok, I'll ask... On what do you plan on cooking anything attached to these on? They look great, and I agree with the others that they are probably food safe. But those wooden handles seem like they will burn up, especially at the high temps most skewered food gets cook at.
