    Open pit rotisserie

    I’m probably crazy, but was asked to do a whole pig for a small gathering. I purchased this rig

    https://www.vevor.com/collections/co...-motor-outdoor

    I hope to do a few smaller cooks, chicken, pork butt etc to get familiar with it. My plan is for a 20 lb suckling next month.

    Any advice, other than don’t do it? LOL

      I so want to buy this, but I would have a very tough time convincing SWMBO, especially if she sees this picture!

        Although if you've got an Apple phone, I'd like to see it roasting, so I'll throw my vote in for that.

      You do see my profile picture?

      That little piggy was cooked in my wood fired oven. I no longer live there 🙁

        I see, big red apple.
        Does an apple a day keep the Flys away?

        Did a whole lamb once and it did look a lot like a dog, especially with the head off.

      Looking at the height vs the horizontal bottom stand I’d plan ahead and get some weights, like sandbags, to prevent a tipping accident.

        The rig looks decent enough for the price point. It also looks pretty versatile too. I would anchor the legs if cooking more than 30 pounds or so. It should be fun to pursue your house flavors and techniques with this. Traditional tacos pastor...'nuff said...lol

          Building the pit today with cinder block. Also going to use heave gauge metal mesh floor floor for air flow. I plan to secure the base to this floor. I had wanted to buy additional accessories, rotisserie forks, etc, but this place doesn’t sell any and I can’t find anything that fits on a 3/4” rod. Will need to improvise to use for smaller animals. No dogs, I promise.

                  Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                  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.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                  Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
