Wish I could answer you, but I don't have one for mine yet. I'm thinking about getting one, but it'll be next year before that happens.

well, you can achieve much the same result using indirect heat with both sides banked with coals and a drip pan in the middle with the food over it. My whole chix come out spectacularly!

The other grill in my "New Toy" post was made for serious rotisserie cooking. It uses a 1" spit and the burners raise and lower by means of a switch. It can handle a couple turkeys or a whole hog.

I havent done any rotisserie cooking yet, but when I do, I'll use the Easy Roast I have.

I havent even thought of using a rotisserie on the smoker. Now that it's on the patio, it's even farther from a power source. -lol

Anyone ever turn/smoke meat?

That's what I want a rotisserie for. I'd like to use that to smoke whole turkeys. If the meat's on the rotisserie, and the cooking grates are removed, you can fit one, probably two birds into the cooking chamber and use the SFB for heat and smoke. Of course, you'd have to switch the birds around, right for left, so they cook evenly.

Love2Q,

Rotisserie chicken is one of my favorite ways to make chicken. No other method replicates the results. If you want one, get a battery operated machine. I've had mine for twenty years, but have seen them on line recently.

Here it is in use.

Allen, why not set up the fire chamber for indirect grilling? Then you don't need to use the firebox.
