    First Time Rotisserie Chicken

    Good morning! My wife gave me a rotisserie for my Primo XL grill! I'm excited to give it a try!
    I'm looking for some advice about how to set my fire on my Primo. From what I've read, I shouldn't use heat deflectors but instead just put the chicken on a spit over the direct flames and let it turn on the rotisserie... What say you?

    Also, I'm wanting to be sure about the cooking temp at the rotisserie level... I've read 325 is ideal...

    Finally, to keep an eye on the temp, my thought was to remove the built in thermometer, and place the pit probe from my Maverick thermometer through the hole... But that means I'll have a ½ inch hole that will let uncontrolled air in. Any thoughts on what I can use to plug it up temporarily?

    Any help would be very appreciated.

    Thanks

    Tim

    I can't help with the Primo, but I cook very hot on my Kettle. I suggest 350° minimum, and I wouldn't upset with temps a bit higher.

    I don't know how close the fire will be in your Primo, but you should keep an eye on the bird and if it gets as brown as you want it before it's done, you might need to put the deflector in.

      Perfect application for a cordless thermometer like a MEATER

        I use my Meater exclusively with the roto. Works great.

      When I rotisserie on my Kamado, I don’t pay terrible attention to the fire really. I start a fire banked back against the charcoal basket and let it go from there. As long as you don’t really load up on charcoal it’ll settle in fairly well.

        Our Favorite Backyard 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.

        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!

        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.

        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.

        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’.
