I know this is OT, but I must say that ducks done in the Showtime rotisserie ARE, as I said before, fabulous.

When I first tried one, I sat there waiting for everything to catch fire because of all the fat ducks produce. Nothing happened. In fact, I didn't even have to empty the drip tray during the roasting. I can only suggest that perhaps the intense heat drives the fat & juices into the meat, but the meat doesn't turn out greasy either. Go figure.

All I know is that it turns out a really really nice duck.

I bought a Showtime rotisserie about 8 yrs ago and used it at least once a week. Unfortunately, it's in storage and I have no idea where to begin to look. It's probably right next to the pasta machine and many other kitchen necessities.

The rotisserie makes the best turkey I've ever had, too. Great kabobs, pork chops .... Never tried duck because of the same reasons you mentioned but that will be the first thing I make when I find the darned machine.

I have one of the showtime rotisseries. I brush the chicken with olive oil. Then I either use McCormick Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning or Lawrys Perfect Blend Seasoning and Rub for Chicken and Poultry. The olive oil makes the chicken moist and golden brown plus helps the seasoning stick to the chicken. I coat the chicken with the seasoning, a little kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. It is always moist and yummy.

You are not alone, the only reason I haven't bought one is because i have no space on the counter.

Celery seed, black pepper and a little salt rubbed inside and out, with a sprig of rosemary and a couple cloves of garlic stuffed in the cavity should be tasty.

And just to whet your whistles - lol - we did our Easter duck on our "Showtime" rotisserie & it turned out FABULOUS!!!!!! Crispy skin, moist but not greasy meat, no smoke or oven fires - lol!! It was SO DELICIOUS!!!! Duck was just about 6 pounds & took about 1-1/2 hours total. Plus, we left it spinning on "no heat" for a bit while the side dishes finished up.

It will take a LOT for me to do a duck any other way after doing them on my good old "Ron Popeil Showtime Rotisserie". And no - I have no connection with the company - lol!!!
