    How do I keep my Maverick probe wire from wrapping around my rotisserie? (humor)

    Should the rotisserie rotate only 180 degrees in alternating directions?

    Just zip tie the receiver unit to the rotisserie and it should be all good... It is a Maverick and it can handle the heat. Seems legit anyway...

    Oddly enough though and joking aside... Maverick does have a Rotisserie Thermometer ET-75 and according to Amazon there is only one left for $69.99..... unless I decide to buy it lol...

          You just need a really long cord. Like the old telephone cords. I believe BBQBS.com sells them

            If you think about how the earth rotates every 24 hrs, if you cook low & slow enough there's really no need for a rotisserie, right? Or something like that.

                And this is precisely why rotisseries in the southern hemisphere always rotate in the opposite direction from northern hemisphere rotisseries ...

                Same thing happens when you flush a toilet. Clockwise in North and counter clockwise way down Yonder.🤔

                I LOVE the rotisserie!!!!!! I may just try attaching the Maverick receiver to the spit handle. With the remote receiver too, I won't even need to stop the rotation in order to read the temp...

                  It'd be good to have docblonder weigh in here to confirm my opinion (it's been a while since I took physics), but the shooting demo above has nothing to do with the Coriolis effect. That effect is a "left/right" (more accurately, north/south) appearing phenomenon, not an "up/down". To be even more picky, it's core--ee--OH--liss, not core--ee--ALL--liss.

                    Nah, I only cook with wood!

                    Now some prefer the flavor from smoking with Alkaline Copper Quartenary wood but I find it a little strong and pretentious. But to each his own.

                    I do have a small stash of the old arsenic treated stuff I bring out for special occasions like a Wagyu brisket. Mmm, mmm.

                      Actually, the coriolis (your pronunciation is correct) effect really does introduce an up/down error when shooting true West/East and a left/right error when shooting true North/South ... all of which are pretty easy to calculate. It gets just a little tougher when you're trying to compute the compound coriolis error when shooting any direction but true North, South, East, or West. Note that the direction has to be true ... not magnetic because the earth's true and magnetic poles are not co-located. FWIW, even though I am a career geophysicist (recently retired) who supposedly knows these sorts of things to be true, on my first trip to Australia I just had to fill a wash basin, let it stabilize for quite a long time, then watch it drain counter-clockwise ... magical!

                        I hate to show ignorance, but the up/down effect described due the the earth rotating and getting "higher" or "lower" in the time of flight seems not to be Coriolis to me. I need to read more, I guess.

                      the good one grill
                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      kareubequ bbq smoker

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
