Soak skewers in woater for :30 minutes.  Cut sausage links into 1-inch rounds.  Core, but don't peel, apples.  Cut each into 8 equal wedges.  Cover wedges with water in a large bowl and stir in lemon juice.  Set aside.

Peel onion and cut off root and stem ends.  Cut onion into 8 equal wedges, stem to root.  Heat grill to medium-high ( 375° to 400° ).  Thread ingredients on bamboo skewers: sausage, apple wedge, onion wedge.  Repeat so each skewer has two pieces of each ingredient.  Finish skewer with one more sausage round.

Brush skewers lightly with Apple Thyme Glaze.  Grill :03 to :04 minutes.  Turn skewers over and brush again with glaze.  Grill :03 to :04 more minutes.  Brush once more with glaze just before removing from the grill.
