Full Answer

Bamboo skewers can normally be reused as long as they have not become burnt during their time on the grill. A quick way to get the skewers on the grill faster next time is to wash them, soak them and then freeze them in a bag after they are done being used.

Soaking skewers helps prevent them from becoming burnt or catching on fire while on the grill.
