This Weber kettle rotisserie is 22” in diameter and 7” deep. It’s made from steel, powder coated gloss black. It consists of the support ring, an electric motor, powered via a standard power outlet, and a one piece spit with a wooden handle. There are two adjustable two-prong forks on the spit for securing the food.
You might wonder where all your money has gone when you get this charcoal kettle rotisserie, there really isn’t a lot to it. It is heavier than I expected, at around 7lbs, and the electric motor is sturdy enough. If you’ve seen the older model rotisseries, you might be wondering where the counterbalance is. This version of the Weber charcoal rotisserie doesn’t need one because of it’s improved design, at least according to the manufacturer. Although this grilling rotisserie is designed to fit on Weber kettles, it should fit on any similar 22” or 22.5” kettle style BBQ.
The powerful motor allows you to load up this charcoal grill rotisserie with large pieces of meat and still get an even grill. It will take a couple of chickens, a turkey, and even ribs, and many other things. The trick is to get the food to stay on the forks, and to balance it as best you can. This isn’t as easy as it sounds, particularly with irregular shaped food, but it’s worth doing, and it gets easier with practice.
Cleaning up is very easy, it rarely takes more than a wipe down with a soapy sponge. And it all comes apart for easy access.
The Weber BBQ rotisserie obviously needs a power outlet nearby, so it’s not truly portable. And of course it takes up the whole grilling area, so you can’t really cook anything else while this is going. But once you’ve used it you’ll wonder why you didn’t buy one years ago.
