Convert any 22" kettle into a rotisserie cooker. Includes a heavy-duty electric motor with a wooden rod handle for safe handling. Improved design no longer requires counterbalance for smooth wear.
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

EDIT: I did cook a 12 pound turkey on this recently and it worked flawlessly! It had no problem spinning the bird. Just need to make sure to tie legs and wings tight.
First of all, it arrived in pristine condition -- not a dent on the box, which necessarily has to be pretty large since the main component -- the enamel-coated steel ring that supports the rotisserie itself -- ships in one piece and all ready for use. It's the same material Weber uses for the kettle and lid of their famous grills, and it's welded prior to enamel coating, so there's no exposed steel. Next, the spit (or skewer, if that word is offensive to you) is heavy duty stainless steel, thick enough to span the grill without sagging under those heavy loads. The skewer forks (you get two) are also heavy duty stainless and come with comfortably large thumbscrews to secure them in place on the skewer. The motor is housed in a steel and plastic casing with an on/off switch, but a very short (2.5 feet) cord.
Operation couldn't be simpler -- put the rotisserie ring on your kettle base, slide the motor onto the mount, load your food on the spit and slide the pointy end into the motor. Don't worry about the somewhat loose fit -- the lid tightens it up and heat expansion will help seal the gaps. You'll notice I skipped all the niceties about removing the cooking grate and how to arrange your charcoal -- I'll leave some of the mystery to you to decipher. But I found that Weber's charcoal holders (http://www.amazon.com/Weber-7403-Char-Basket-Charcoal-Briquet/dp/B000WEMGM4/ref=pd_bxgy_lg_img_y) are the perfect way to fire up your coals and then split them for indirect cooking. You'll also want some sort of drip pan to place under your food between the charcoal holders, otherwise your Weber's ash catcher will fill up with runoff from the cooking process.
Now, let me describe the first run -- two 5.5 pound chickens lightly seasoned with seasoned salt and stuffed with celery and onion, 50 pieces of charcoal, and an hour and 20 minutes resulted in the most delicious chicken I have ever pulled out of my Weber!!! Every inch of both birds was browned and crisped by the continuous self-basting a rotisserie experience provides. Every forkful was tender, juicy and flavorful! While each one of those chickens effectively cost about $90 (when you amortize all the equipment and ingredients), I expect the per-dish cost will come down substantially over the next few months.
This is definitely an investment in food satisfaction -- prepare to become a grilling legend, a rotisserie rock star, and the most sought after barbeque invitation in town!
UPDATE -- As we start 2015, I'm thinking back on all the great meals that came off this rotisserie. Yes, more chickens, of course, but also:
* pork tenderloin, skewered churrascurria style, slathered in a chipotle spice rub and flavored with mesquite and oak smoke
* beef tenderloin, skewered lengthwise, rubbed with seasoned salt (heavy on the garlic!) and turned for about 40 minutes in a hickory-heavy smoke
* standing rib roast, rubbed with seasoned salt and cooked in mesquite/hickory smoke mix
* Mediterranean spiced leg of lamb, marinated overnight and rolled for about an hour and a half over hardwood lump charcoal
So now I'm impatiently waiting for Easter, when I plan to redo that leg of lamb, this time with pecan smoke. Are you still waiting? Why haven't you bought one of these yet?
Very satisfied with the purchase because, well....it's made by Weber!
