Product Description

Product Description

Convert any 22-1/2" kettle into a rotisserie cooker. Includes a heavy-duty electric motor with a wooden rod handle for safe handling and a counterbalance for smooth turning and less motor wear.

Amazon.com

When you need to grill a feast to feed a small army or a heavy turkey for a festive celebration, you need a reliable and durable rotisserie. Besides providing even cooking on all parts of your delicacy, a rotisserie is a pure pleasure to watch. Weber's kettle barbecue rotisserie includes a heavy-duty electric motor, a wooden rod handle, and (more importantly) a counterbalance for smooth turning and less motor wear. When your turkey is too heavy for the rotisserie, the rotisserie turns until the heaviest part of the bird gets to the top of the rotisserie. To prevent this problem, just slide the counterbalance up and down on its handle until your turkey turns smoothly and gently, grilling to a delicious golden brown. This rotisserie fits all 22-1/2-inch kettles. --Rhonda Langdon

The other reviews are correct. This unit works very well in every way, a basket mesh kind of food holder would be a good option, use a drip pan and keep the coals off to the sides, the ring riser/extension is useful for smoking and cooking big things, etc. It is all good, but there is more:

Who do you know who actually has a charcoal grill and a rotisserie? Nobody. If you get one, your guests will be entertained on several levels and you will be the Master. A rotisseries is professional looking, produces unmatched taste and an exciting demonstration-style cooking experience for everyone. Those that utilize them are seen as proficient and competent. Not a bad label for you, eh? Might get you somewhere.

The best meal I ever had was a rotisserie turkey that saved me from starvation after a Hike of Death. Perhaps it can save you or a loved one.

Rotisserie cooking lends itself to the acclaimed high heat, short cooking time technique. Hot coals and the self-basting action work well here. One of the major gourmet magazines cooked turkeys every way known and strongly recommended the high heat way. This is also the suggested method for cooking heritage meats and wild game.

Starting out at 500+ degrees and ending at something short of US government temperature recommendations is the secret. A turkey, for example, is best taken out of the heat at around 170, or less, and allowed to rest. It will go up around 10 degrees after that.

I tie bacon strips onto the breast and add wet smoking wood chips to the coals. Stuff the cavity with an orange and some garlic. Other things could be used, too. I have rotisseried heritage, free range, organic, kosher and regular good quality supermart turkeys with this high-heat method and they have all been good.

If you want extreme flexibility using your Weber charcoal grill then this rotisserie unit is a must.
The advantages to owning this rotisserie are as follows:
1) Size does not matter. I've cooked a 20 pound turkey, 10 pound rib roast, 8 pound roast beef, 16 chop pork loin, etc. all to perfection on the rotisserie.
2) The time it takes to cook the above is reduced because of the convection type heat in the kettle. Your 3 pound chicken or 12 pound capon will cook precisely to your liking without your standing over the barbeque for large amounts of time.
3) Clean up is a cinch. The electric motor slips off a bracket on the rotisserie, and the skewers and rotisserie rod can be cleaned with a regular sponge in minutes. Nothing burns or sticks to these items. The rotisserie unit itself is simply hung on a hook for future use. There is no cleaning necessary.
Enjoy it!

I love this thing. I just got it, put two chickens on, and 1.5 hours later was eating the juiciest, tastiest chickens I have ever had. No comparison with my smoker or beercan style...the rotisserie beats either method hands down. I had debated the purchase, thinking that this was just going to be another gadget I would use once and then never again. I had been told that the meat comes out no differently than if you just lay it on the grill, and that the motors on rotisseries are loud and obnoxious. Neither statement could be further from the truth. The meat is juicier due to the self-basting aspect, and the motor on this unit is virtually silent. Also, having the counterweight is a great plus for irregularly shaped items. This is a great purchase, and very well built in typical Weber fashion. Highly recommended.

Meat tastes better on a stick--a really big stick in this case. I've done 2 chickens at a time, 16 pound turkeys, legs o' lamb, you name it, it will come out great on this rotisserie attachment. Couldn't be easier to set up and use. Clean up? If you want it to look pristine, you'll have to spend time getting at the nooks and crannies but WHY BOTHER? Give it a light cleanup with a sponge and soap and you're good to go for the next meat-on-a-stick fest.

You know you want it--buy it--it's a great deal and has free shipping!

UPDATE 3/2014
It's been 9 years since my review, and I'm STILL using the original rotisserie attachment about 4 times a year. A small addendum to the original review: I got an extra set of meat holders and can now get 3 chickens on the skewer at once. I've done turkeys that weigh 22 lbs. Legs o' lamb are super delicious and quick. BUY THIS ATTACHMENT!

Funny story from Thanksgiving last year: i loaded a 22 lb turkey onto the rotisserie and hit the on button, and nothing--no turning, no nothing. Crap thought I, what am i gonna do? So I started turning the turkey by hand and scoping out the black friday sales on my phone. 45 minutes and one 500GB SSD drive purchase later, and checked the reset button the GFI plug the rotisserie was plugged into and sure enough, it had popped. I reset the GFI, and the turkey started turning on its own. Nothing like user error.

We have owned Weber barbques for years and the rotisserie is an important accessory if you are doing chickens and turkeys. They are so much more juicy with the rotisserie than just sitting in the rack. Two chickens at a time (actually you can to three) should be about the same size for cooking time. Bigger are better, at least 4 lbs each. They will take about an hour and 20 minutes. Turkeys can be up to about 12 lbs. A pop-out timer is recommended, you can buy them separately if the turkey doesn't come with one. Hickory chips for smoke are good. Use lots of salt on the skin so the smoke will flavor the meat (and don't eat the skin:-) Be sure to catch the drippings in a Weber pan for the gravey.
