I came across Campfire Cafe on RFD channel. They use a special grilling basket to cook chickens and other similar items. Apparently the company that made the basket they use went out of business and the dealer is selling the last of the stock at an outrageous price. Are there any other sources for grilling baskets out there?

This the the thing they use on the show:


I have tried to cook chicken on my gas grill rotisserie and the damn things keep trying to fall off. No matter how I put the metal prong things in the chicken, they will not hold the chicken securely. I finally used wire to wrap the chicken and it sort of worked, but not well. I would eventually like to do a turkey, but until I can figure out how to do a dang chicken that will have to wait.

Any suggestions out there??

I got a fairly big basket from BBQ Galore which will twirl 3 haves easy and 4 if you want them to be cozy. Home Depot also sells some. Would not work to spin whole birds but the splits come out spectacular. Now my gasser has an issue which maybe some others have in that the stationary heat sources make it hottest directly above the burners and it do not they dont brown up evenly. Comes out with a crispy strip around the meat. Works better with charcoal.

Butcher's twine could work to hold the birds on the spit until you can find a basket.
