    Cajun Bandit Rotisserie

    Got my Christmas gift early and put it to immediate use. So far, I have done Peruvian style chicken and leg of lamb. Today I am doing a small piece (3#) of leg of goat. I haven't seen too many rotisserie recipes on here. Does anyone here have a good source for rotisserie recipes?

    That is neat!!


      Lookin' good Zman! Many of the recipes found here would be excellent for rotisserie. The rubs, marinades, and brines would work well in terms of what you might like flavor wise, as rotisserie cooking is still "just" cooking low and slow(usually) right? As a long time chef and line dog, one learns to look at flavor profile first. The method will follow. The opposite is also true. So, if you want, for example, a "Texas bbq" flavor from a chicken, find a recipe that will give you that flavor. Even on a rotisserie, you still cook chicken to 155 or so, right? So, marinate, rub, etc, then just cook. Traditional rotisserie recipes such as Churrasco are fairly simple, but just take time. Greek rotisserie is also simple, but takes time. Match the meat to recipes you find here, then just cook 'em up. Try not to "over think" it, as it is actually pretty simple.

      In looking at your excellent images, I can see you are a good and experienced cook. So, just go for it and do what you do, as what you are doing now is great. Having trained and worked with a ton of cooks in my career, I know talent when I see it, and you have it. Seasons greetings from Houston, Alaska...


        +1000 !


          Thanks for the advice and kind words, Strat. I worked in kitchens throughout college, as banquet and line cook. It was fun and I learned a lot. These days it's a hobby/passion.

            You are most welcome. My wife and I want to adapt our rig for a rotisserie to do some of the traditionally styled Brazilian bbq she grew up with. She saw your pics and freaked, so I guess I'm on a quest...lol

          Just finished the goat leg. It was a small 3# piece. Salted it earlier today and added pepper before cooking. When it was time to go in the rotisserie, I put a pan with diced potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, S&P, and water under while it cooked. It was on the rotisserie a little over an hour.

            A prime example of major yumminess! Excuse me, I'm hungry now...lol

          You are giving me flashbacks to Kenny Rogers Roasters! Awesome! Bet you get a nice, even cook.

            Are they completely out of business? Every time I hear that name I think of Kramer's secret obsession on Seinfeld.

            I think KRR are all out of biz. We only had a couple in the Columbia, SC area - but they were good!

            I can still taste that pulled chicken pita sammich!!

            If I lived above a KRR like Kramer did I probably would have become obsessed like he did too!

          Look forward to more delicious pics!


            I was just thinking about this today: Has anybody made a whole chicken on a rotisserie with MH's Huli Huli sauce/marinade? I'll bet it would be awesome. I will probably try it in the spring.


              It's on the top of my list when I finally break down and buy a rotisserie

              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.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              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.

              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.
