PEORIA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – A Peoria 13-year-old has been recently granted a patent for a cooking tool designed to cook shish kabobs from the inside out.
The invention is called the Skew-B-Que.
Brandon Lev applied for the patent when he was 11-years-old, but it took two years for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Brandon said his mom’s cooking and dad’s challenge inspired him to come up with his Skew-B-Que invention.
“A few summers ago, my dad offered me $100 to come up with 28 inventions in 28 days and I was very motivated to do that and one day, my mom was cooking shish-kabobs and there was a lot of meat on it, so the outside was burnt and the inside was almost raw,” said Brandon.
