Rotisserie turkey, how to secure

We have a deep frying rotisserie and was able to secure the bird without issues the first time but the second, not so much. Was thinking of trying a meat net this time. Will that work? The bird will be about 15#'s, lookalike a number 24 is the biggest????

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I kinda don’t understand this. A “rotisserie” is basically meat on a spit that rotates over (and sometimes in front of) a heat source. Deep frying involves submerging the meat in hot oil. How does a deep frying rotisserie work? Mind you, I’ve never rotisseried anything, and I really suck at deep frying, so I’m probably not your go to person!

The instead of rotating over heat, the meat is half submerged in a deep fryer at any given time as it rotates. It uses a lot less oil. You can do a search for a Waring Pro Turkey Deep Fryer

I looked it up, and watched the video on the Waring website. I've never seen anything like it.

I rotisserie cook on my charcoal grill all the time, and always just tie my birds with butcher's twine. It takes a lot of tying for a turkey. Have you looked at the video at the Waring site? They show how they tie a turkey with butcher's twine.

I have bought roasts with meat netting, but have never netted any meat at home. You will still have to make sure the net is very tight all over the bird.

I would tend to stick with twine, and just make sure to use a lot of it, and tie it tight.

That's all I got.

Of course, I could do a search, but I’m a very lazy person (others on the site will back me up on that), and you posting a link would be so much easier. For me, anyway!

I'm guessing it rotates horizontally through a bath of hot oil.

Lol, my first thought would be that otherwise, vertically, it would have to be a huge, gyroscopic thing.

Nonetheless, try some chickenwire. You can make it as tight as needed.

Be careful with regular rotisseries. Mine has a 12 lb limit. Hardly enough for a turkey.

I use a charcoal rotisserie a lot, I use wire bought from my hardware store. About 1mm thick.
