    Shawarma..vertical grill

    Has any one cooked on a vertical rotisserie...
    my kids order this for me as i was not really satisfied with the TROMPO KING..I used it on my green egg..
    came out ok..but I always would have to finish it off on a cast iron pan...
    the booklet with this also claims I may have to do it in a cast iron pan..
    the deal on this one j need to manually turn the meat every 2 to 3 minutes...
    I can be very lazy and would like to be able to hook up a motorized rotisserie..some how..
    sure would appreciate all the input you all can offer..
    I am going to use lump charcoal..fogo or b&b...I did not whish for a electric or gas vertical cooker....
    thank you all

      MAE247 I think you mean the PIT tools in the background.
      And the moonshine Jugs too.

      grillinglousiana Yeah, it is a shame. I plan to remove the top and the upper pizza stone to make room. I'll post pics when I do it.

ID:	1101432 I have used a meat spike indirect on my BGE with decent results at 375, but not the real deal.

      I've used a cheap skewer that I bent and a mini cast iron wok to do it on the kamado as well.

        yep..thats much like what I do with the Trompo...
        I just hope to spin it and shave it off as it cooks..this deal will work for that, just have to keep turning manually...I guess I could let the guest rotate it

      In my part of the woods "spit braai's" are very popular and most of them are home made.
      Almost all use a windscreen wiper motor coupled to a battery to drive the rotisserie shaft. One big gear on the motor and a smaller on on the shaft driven by a chain. The "spits" are big and made for grilling whole lamb and pigs so might be a bit overkill for what you looking at.
      What I can tell from the pic's is that the wheel at the top is the turning mechanism and is driving a gear on the shaft (just a guess). The handle could be replaced with a gear and turned by a chain attached to a motor. Like I said overkill for your need.

      I'm sure some modification at the top allowing a Weber rotisserie motor to link to the shaft would work and a heat shield of course. It's difficult to say whst exactly is possible without physically seeing the stand.
      Might work out to be a pricey exercise.

        you are correct about the wheel at top to turn it..
        I am thinking that I may make a couple rods to hold the split...I have thought about mounting the motor to the bottom of a shop cart and spinning that way..
        thru a drip pan...who knows...I am gonna try something

      #7
      rain today so I bought a shop cart at Harbor freight..turned the top shelf upside down..my plan at this point is to mount a rotisserie under the shelf..drill through the shelf and have a motorized vertical cooker..I am cooking Tacos El Pastour this weekend ...folks have requested that been about a year ..last cook...just a lot of prep time..and I like to marinate the meat 2 days before at least...

        I got it up and running...much to my suprise is how fast it cooked..I used fogo black bag lump..the fire was over 900+..outside of meat on rotation was 300+....basically I was shaving meat regularly...I may try b&b charcoal on char logs next time...mainly because I always have 2 or pits running at same time...sides on one ..main dish on another

      #8
      I'd find a way to hook a string to my beer glass and every time I lift it to take a sip it spins the rotisserie a little...

      Do you know how much they paid for that rig? Love to have one but can't justify a bunch of money for a couple of uses a year.

ID:	1102118 Looks like a cool rig. The closest I have come to this is a vertical skewer with a meat stack done in my pellet smoker.

              Jfrosty27 I did Doner kebab last year with just a $40 spike. See link below. Turned out pretty good.

              Yeesh, that thing better have its own breaker. 2400 watt. O_o

              I prefer the gas/electric combos…

            Glen and Friends is a you tuber who made a video about how he made his is own vertical shawarma cooker from a beer keg with good results. It did not look that difficult to do. I like watching his videos and nothing seems too hard or complicated for him to try.

                  Great looking mod Sir. All those 4 letter plus words will all be worth it when you dont have to get up and manually operate it. Looks really good. Happy days ahead.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


              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.

              3 burner gas grill

              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
