BBQ Kielbasa or Smoked Sausage Kabobs with Sweet Potatoes

Here's a nice little twist for the grill, BBQ Kielbasa or Smoked Sausage Shish-Kabobs with Sweet Potatoes, and squash, peppers and onions. If you haven't cooked a kielbasa type sausage on the grill before folks, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. I always have smoked turkey sausage in the freezer, it's a nice easy go-to. It's also ~really~ good with barbecue sauce, and I suggest placing the sweet potatoes next to the meat and brushing them with the sauce too. Actually... There isn't anything on the skewer a little Sweet Baby Rays wouldn't make extra happy and tasty:@)

I like to peel and slice the sweet potato and then add it to a steamer basket over boiling water for about 7 minutes.
Then the steamer basket of squash goes into the fridge to cool off completely.
That way it's mostly cooked yet still firm enough to be skewered and grilled. 
I used jalapeno, any green pepper you'd like or have would add great flavor and color.

BBQ Kielbasa/Smoked Sausage Kabobs with Sweet Potatoes
Kielbasa or smoked sausage cut into 1/2-1" slices-I like smoked turkey sausage
Thin sweet potatoes, peeled, sliced into 1/2" slices, steamed for 7 minutes and cooled in fridge
Onion, 1" chunks
Red bell pepper, 1" chunks
Green pepper of choice, 1" chunks
Thin summer squash, 1/2" slices
Olive oil
Your favorite seasoned salt-I used my The 'One' BBQ Rub HERE
Your favorite BBQ Sauce-We're fond of Sweet Baby Ray's
  1. Place everything in a big bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
  2. Sprinkle liberal amount of your favorite seasoned salt (or rub) and mix well.
  3. Skewer everything and grill over medium/high heat for about 4 minutes a side (think of it as having 4 sides). 
  4. After the second turn brush the meat (or everything) with BBQ sauce. Cook for the last couple turns basting with sauce as desired.
Try something new on the grill and have a happy day:@)
