New Rotisserie...need help!

Ok, so I almost burnt down my house yesterday. A couple weeks ago I bought a new grill with a rotisserie. Yesterday I finally got to use the new Stainless marvel, and I had the wife bring home a whole chicken. So I figured rub it down with olive oil, shake some salt and pepper on it, jamb a few stripes of bacon inside, and toothpick a few strips on the outside. Set it and forget it. Well, those 4 strips inside filled the inside with grease, and thus pouring out onto the hot grill was more than I bargained for. It didnt last very long, and didnt do much damage to the chicken.

What I want to know is how do you guys and gals from all over the states prepare and cook ANYTHING for the Rotisserie.

Thank you!

If I even think of putting any chicken other than white meat on my grill it flares up. I keep a squirt bottle full of water on my counter to knock down the grease fires while cooking.

I get the grill really hot, and put the meat on then turn it down to nothing and cook at low temps with the lid closed to reduce the flair ups. Never used a rotisserie.

Turn down your heat, when cooking with a rotisserie it should take double the cooking time.

I completely agree. Doesn't matter if it's chicken or lamb.. low heat is the key. Indirect heat would be best. But if you have a back side burner designed for the rotisserie, that is what you want to use.

Don't sear any meats before a slow cook either. Even Alton Brown proved that to be a myth.

Also, look into dry rubs for rotisserie cooking.

It's low heat and should glow a bluish orange.

Exactly. But a good injectable brine is very nice also.


God... how I love to cook.

Ya know I was wondering about a 24 hr brine, but thought all the salt might dry the meat out while you are rotisseri'ing it.
