Tips for Cooking with the Rotisserie Kit
Making sure your meat is balanced and secured properly is key to a good cook. The Gravity Series Rotisserie Kit can handle up to 20 pounds of food.
When selecting your meat to cook, look for pieces that are even all over for the best balance. Adjust the claws as needed whenever the meat cooks and the fibers start to break down.
For whole birds, use butcher twine to hold the legs and wings in place. You’ll want to cross the drumsticks and tie together while also tying the wings against the body. Run the spit rod through the entire cavity of the bird, keeping parallel to the backbone and through the opening near the tail bone. Use the claws to hold the bird in place.
For pork, ham, beef, or lamb, skewer the meat lengthwise through the longest part to hold in place. Center your meat and hold in place with the claws.
Check the weight of your skewer before cooking. If the meat feels uneven or rolls more heavily to one side, readjust and secure to ensure even cooking and rotation throughout the cook.
For larger, fattier cuts of meat, place a drip pan underneath the food to help avoid any flare-ups during the cook.
Keep the lid of your grill closed during the cook to prevent heat from escaping and causing uneven cooking spots.
Do not operate at temperatures above 450°F.
And don’t forget to remove the rotisserie kit when not in use.
