A simple recipe for making Baharat kabobs on the grill.  In this case we use our indirect smoker, although the recipe will work with any grill set up for indirect cooking.


Baharat Beef Kabobs

A simple recipe for making baharat kabobs.

  • Author: Shoebocks
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Category: Main Course
  • Cuisine: Middle Eastern


  • 2 pounds Beef (chuck was used here but this will be good with ribeye, filet, or sirloin)
  • 23 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Baharat
  • 1 onion (cut in large pieces)
  • 2 bell peppers (cut in large pieces)


  1. Cut the beef into cubes and place in zip-lock bag or container.  Add olive oil and baharat and mix until the cubes are coated.  Refrigerate overnight
  2. While grill is warming you can skewer the kabobs, alternating with what ever vegetables you would like to add.  In this case I used bell pepper and onion.
  3. Set up your grill for indirect cooking or on a gas grill set the grill on low heat.  In this case I put the kabobs in the smoking chamber of my smoker.  On a kettle grill simply place the kabobs on the cool side.
  4. cook the kabobs on low for 15-30 minutes.  If the temps are under 300 you can cook for 30 minutes.  If the temp is higher you will need to cook for less time.
  5. Transfer the kabobs to direct heat and sear them to finish turning often to avoid burning.  For a gas grill simply crank the heat to the highest setting.  For a grill or smoker cook directly over fire.  This will take about 5-10 minutes depending on the desired doneness.  Make sure to pull them before fully finished as they will finish coming to temp while resting.
  6. After cooking cover/wrap the kabobs in foil and let rest for 10-15 minutes.
