This is a Rotisserie on Weber I find from eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Weber-22...item43b454de9c

But my Rotisserie will be 3 skewers to hold meat more secure.
and I make the Rotisserie and Middle section from stainless steel

Do you have any pictures of this middle section?

Id be interested in one if I had a chance to see it but will probably wait until spring time if I was going to buy it.

I am planning to do this new project.
But I would like to hear from you guys first.
Is there a market for it.
Do you need the Rotisserie only
or Rotisserie plus middle section
Do you need 110V motor
or 12 VDC motor plus AC/DC adapter

Personally I am in the market for something like:

Cajun Bandit

or

Smoke EZ
http://i45.tinypic.com/16k5ndl.jpg


Im not interested in a rotisserie but I can only speak for myself.

Those two are different units so they have different sizing and work slightly differently. I dont own either of them so I couldnt give you sizes for them. I also think this is the wrong way to approach it, you should look to see what is good out there and look to improve on it.

If I gave you sizing and my preferences could you make one for me based on my measurements? I like both of those products and would like to combine some things.

woodpelletsmoker 11-10-2012 09:26 PM

You are absolute right

I will not simply clone.
Without upgrade I would like to give up.
If you can help to develop a model, it will be yours.

For example I dislike the fire pot or fire grate in Weber. The way it burns simply wastes some of your effective grill area

Give me about a week to research this a bit more and ill have some rough blueprints for you as well as my thoughts on it.

But read posts here, you place coal on one side, you can not place meat direct above coal, and you waste that area

I understand what you mean now. You are right, in that sense it is an inefficient smoker.

Most people smoke on the Weber kettle as a secondary use, mainly people buy them to grill on. People accept that they cannot use the entire surface to smoke on since they see it as a grill first not a smoker. They are also very cheap and very durable so they are popular.

If for grilling, a Rotisserie may be a great help.
But a smart clip for meat may be needed

Possibly for some but mostly people cook hamburgers and hotdogs or other non complicated things on their Weber kettles. A rotisserie is really for a niche market and I dont think its a very large percentage of people want them, I could be wrong though.

I think you will find a lot more people who are interested in this "middle section" at an affordable price. This is a lot easier venture than electronics and the chances are a lot lower for failure on the user side. Also, many, many people already own a Weber 22 inch kettle so your market here is very large.
