Default Ever hear of anything like this?

I've got an XLbge in my backyard, but would I would like a rotisserie also. I really don't want a full size weber kettle to convert. I am looking for a Mini rotisserie that could cook maybe just two whole chickens.

Think Ronco sized, but for the outside using charcoal instead of electric.

Ever seen a commercial product like this?

Get an Auspit, and a fire ring. Done!

I wonder if keeping the lid closed would be a big deal.

I expect these would go through the shell of your egg no problem.

My old Kamado had a Rotessorie setup. Here are a couple pictures for ideas for you. Seems like a good setup with a notch cut out of the ceramic base and a piece of metal formed into the slot cut outs.

Front of cooker



Rear between hinges



Only issue that I have not addressed yet is how to mount a bracket for the motor.

get 3 brackets something lilke these and bolt 2 of them together make an H shaped bracket, that you can slip on the edge of your egg..


Drill 1 or more holes and file a u shaped hole in the top of the H -shaped one big enough to rest the handle end of your rotisserie rod..
attach the motor mount to the outside of the other U shaped bracket and slip that one down over the opposite side of your egg..


that way you do not have to modify your egg and after you use the rotisserie you just remove the brackets until next time..

I've got (2) Leantisseries and they work great......battery operated and can be used in the oven as well.

I'm curious how this works out for you. I like the idea, but it would still need some altering, I think. I would like the meat in the rotisserie to see some direct heat.
Keep us posted!
