Good eatings to you with your new purchase. I just received a portable gas grill on Ebay for $29 + $8 shipping. Very hard to find. I'm giving it a go this weekend. Just like you, I used to bbq game hens on this type lava rock gas grill. I adapted "Son of Hibachi's" D battery operated Rotisserie ($29) to work with this unit. I had this setup working years ago, but lost touch with it.
I replaced the lava rocks with ceramic briquettes for less flare ups. This is the basic model bbq that's hard to find now.
I'll post pics showing the rotisserie and explain how it was adapted to fit.
