Can Bamboo Skewers Go in the Oven?When your intending to use wooden or bamboo skewers on the grill or in the oven, it's recommended to soak them in water. This will keep your skewers from burning to a crisp. You will at least want to soak them for 30 minutes, this will do a decent job at keeping your skewers intact during the cooking process. If possible though, for best results, you may want to soak your skewers overnight. It can take awhile for the skewers to absorb any water, so overnight will yield the best results.
Alternatively, if you want to add some flavor to your kebabs or other foods you intend to grill, you can consider soaking your skewers in juice. This will add a little more flavor over going the traditional water soak method.
