Asado or Spit roasting

I'm trying to cook a whole animal (suckling pig, goat, or lamb) on a campfire. Aside from the possibility of renting a generator, I'll have no power source. Does anyone know of any resources or techniques I might employ to get this done. I've looked at medium size spits, around 250$, plus the generator cost, and I'm familiar with asados from Uruguay, but have no idea where one could buy something like that or build it. I'll be cooking for a crowd. I thought about the pit technique (imu), but I'd be too worried it wouldn't cook properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is this what your looking for? Whole pig roasting box.
