Brazilian Style Mixed Grill

Here is an example of a Brazilian mixed grill. The whole thing is based on a vinegar and oil marinade, and the object is to provide a variety of grilled meats at the same time. In this case, use some beef tri-tip, turkey tenderloins, and some smoky links of Polish sausage. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for an hour before use. Have your meat thermometer handy -- especially for the poultry.
