What is the best cut of beef to skewer and grill as kebabs? I'll be marinating in olive oil, lemon juice, fresh herbs and aromatics. Thanks!

Flat Iron, bar none.

The second most tender muscle in the cow. Coming from the chuck, it's one of the most flavorful. It's also the most forgiving if overcooked.

My personal favorite is ribeye for its tenderness but I've also used sirloin and that's worked out well too.
