5.0 out of 5 stars It's Cool!, January 3, 2007
This review is from: Weber 2290 22-1/2-Inch Charcoal Kettle Rotisserie (Lawn & Patio)
I like this Rotisserie's quality, ease of use, and functionality. The rotisserie fits my Weber Performer grill (which I also like a lot) perfectly, which is no surprise since it's made specifically for Weber's 22 1/2 inch kettle grill. The spit has a nice chrome finish, as do the forks, and appears that it will last.

This is my first rotisserie unit, and perhaps this might be common knowledge, but after using it a few times, I found that using the balancing weight works best by first putting your bird or roast on the spit, then inserting the loaded spit in the ring without the weight tightened down or inserted in the motor, so that the spit may find its own balance, which naturally will have its heavy-side down. Next, I tighten the weight opposite of this heavy side, insert it in the motor, & turn it on. I then play with the positioning of the weight relative to the spit, but remaining opposite of the heavy side, so that it spins with the least amount of strain to the motor. (Hope that wasn't too wordy.) Anyway, I've cooked chickens, a roast, and a 12 pound turkey (hoping to cook a big honkin' turkey soon), all with great success.

In conjunction with the rotisserie, I've finally discovered the Canjun Injector, the hypodermic needle-like flavor injector. Using both brings out juicy and flavorful foods.

One other tip...carfully open and keep the box that the rotisserie came in for storage. I put some self-stick velcro on the box ends, and it keeps this otherwise awkward to store gizmo safe and stack-able.

I plan to buy another rotisserie unit for my Weber gas grill. I don't know why, but in addition to the more succulent outcome of the food, seeing your food spin around the fire adds to the anticipation of the meal.
