  Skewer (chess) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In chess, a skewer (or thrust) is an attack upon two pieces in a line and is similar to a pin.
In fact, a skewer is sometimes described as a "reverse pin"; the difference is that in a skewer, the more valuable piece is in front of the piece of lesser value.
In the diagram to the left, with Black to move, the fl queen is skewered by White's bishop.

 Chessville - Instruction - Beginner - Basic Tactics - The Skewer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A piece is said to be skewered if it is under attack from an enemy piece in such a way that it is forced to move (i.e., the only remotely rational response is to move), thus exposing another (usually less valuable) piece of the same color to capture by the enemy piece.
You may notice that pins and skewers look a lot alike geometrically: in both cases, the relevant pieces are arranged in a line.
Whether the potentially exposed piece is more valuable (pins) or less valuable (skewer) than the attacked piece is often (but not always) what distinguishes the two.

Threaded onto skewers, the pieces become a single unit to lift and turn--no more rescuing your dinner from the coals.
When loading skewers, keep in mind that meat, poultry, firm-texture fish like swordfish, and shellfish shrink as they cook, tightening their hold on the skewer.
Crisp or firm vegetables and fruit tend to split when pushed onto thick skewers; slender, sharply pointed metal or bamboo skewers work best for these foods (to keep bamboo skewers from charring, soak a few minutes in water before using).

The skewer is equipped with a ring to help push grilled food off of the skewer.
I thought the ring was to hold the end piece of food from falling off during grilling (which is a problem I often have), but it is to aid in pushing the food off the skewer.
Traditional skewers don't have a big handle wasting precious real estate on the grill, these handles are very long, and quite useless when heated to grilling temperatures.

 Hans Christian Andersen: Soup from a Sausage Skewer
The idea that soup could be made from a sausage skewer was to them such an out-of-the-way, unlikely thought, that it was repeated from one to another through the whole forest.
When the morning dawned, and the gentle breeze rippled the glassy mirror of the forest lake, all the delicate veils and flags fluttered away into thin air; the waving garlands of the spider’s web, the hanging bridges and galleries, or whatever else they may be called, vanished away as if they had never been.
She had lost her sausage skewer, but not her voice; for she began to speak at once as if they only waited for her, and would hear her only, and as if nothing else in the world was of the least consequence.
