Not for everyone
on September 7, 2013
The best use for this is when you are cooking enough food to spread out and balance everything evenly among all the trays. It is more work all around; setting up, balancing, breaking down and cleaning it up afterwards. You cannot effectively sear anything on it, therefore, indirect cooking is the best method using this device. My first experience was with chicken legs; once they were oiled up and seasoned, they slipped all over the trays causing precarious balancing problems. I can see where this device might be very useful with balanced loaded up trays, slow cooking for a party of people; you wouldn't have to touch anything until it was done cooking. I wouldn't break it out for less than that. If you have a decent sized grill, you don't need this extravagance; it will not take the place of a rotisserie either. It would be a waste of time and energy for cooking hamburgers, steaks, chops, hot dogs etc. Use this device for cooking a load of wings or ribs, that is where it could really shine.
