Buffalo Pork Kabobs with Grilled Celery, Onion and Jalapeno

The first thing I made on Terra Bella were these Buffalo Pork Kabobs with Grilled Celery, Onion and Jalapeno. You might be thinking "celery on the grill?"... But it's really good folks! I was also very pleasantly surprised by how great jalapenos are on kabobs too, but feel free to sub bell peppers if you'd prefer. This is a nice way to enjoy Buffalo flavoring while saving a few calories... If you opt out of the blue cheese dressing of course:@) I used Tabasco Buffalo Style Hot Sauce and it's very good, has some body to it and sticks well to meat while grilling.
  I tried squares of jalapeno and some 1/2" rounds, I'd stick with the squares.

Bella was smokin'!!!
Just like all grills, there were hot spots on this little pig hibachi, so I'll need to keep a close eye on what I'm cooking. This type of grill can only be used for things that cook quickly over direct heat. And yes, it does get plenty hot!
Want to add something sweet to the skewers? Pineapple would be perfect...
These kabobs would be great with chicken, turkey or shrimp too-why not make it a party and grill some of each!

I'm lovin' my new piggy grill:@)

  7. Because I have been so out of pocket, I had to go back and read the post about Terrabella. I love that!! I see that you haven't painted her yet, but I do hope you do something fun like you mentioned. The kabobs look delicious. I love kabobs because you can mix and match and be creative. I would never have thought to grill celery. I'll give it a whirl.
