    Adding rotisserie to my barrel smoker.

    Hi,

    I am about to receive my new smoker trailer and want to add a rotisserie to it.

    The barrel has a fire tray for the lower level in order to use it as a grill station as well.
    So I am planning to burn wood on the far end of the barrel. And add a 'large animal rotisserie to the outside of the grill. by simply adding 2 rings next to the 44" door. So by moving the firetray back and forth, I can change distance and heat accordingly. To my information a 12" distance would be a rule of thumb. To be verified with the 7-second rule.
    Motor will just be stuck on the end of the spit. And prevented to turn by a bracket/chain.

    Smoker door will work as heat deflector and lifted by chain for adjustments.

    Under the spit a stainless tray will catch drippings with a center discharge tap. And liquids are for basting. And will not cause flare-ups.
    Tray will be placed in the already available grid rails.

    Rotisserie can hold hogs/lamb/turkeys and chicken on a round carrousel.

    Did I tick all the boxes to make this a showpiece during catering jobs and events?

        Every time I see that thing all I can say is WOW. I then realize I have seen it before. But it's like it's the first time.

          Just drove around town and heard many WOW's. Note that here in Spain they haven't seen traditional smoker trailers ever. Even the chef's left their kitchens and took pictures with it. LOL. Click image for larger version
