Used a chicken As a guinea pig. With the "ring" in place there is enough air leak to stoke the fire with the bottom vents closed- i had them part open and the temp pegged the thermometer in just a few minutes.
Got it back but it stayed warm, bird done (hair overdone) in an hour.
Here's the Question. If you run the rotisserie with the top off, do you still light two boxes of charcoal and split them apart, or one box off to one? What say you?
I have been using my Hasty Bake (its going on CL tomorrow BTW) to grill for two years now after I burned my last kettle plum through. I forgot how wonderful those things are. I'll never be without again!
