Welcome to the Brethren, you'll love the place. My Dad had a steam engine similar to that, loved watching it run. That reminds me of him.

Like your way of conserving energy.
The chicken your cookin looks fantastic. Good food, good people, what more is there.

I work with numerous South Africans who have migrated to Oz and brought the braai culture here with them.

They are all reknown for their big personality, big ideas, and not doing things by halves.

That steam rotisserie is awesome, and exactly what I'd expect one of my colleagues to do!

They also introduced me to the Ina Paarman range. Very nice seasonings - and badly needed down here to educate all the people who are so used to bland food.

I also buy biltong & boewors. Good eats.

This is the best we have here: http://www.africandelights.com.au

Paul B, I actually have a similar battery operated rotisserie as well. The steam operated rotisserie was made basically because I can, there really is no other explanation. It is a novelty piece and a conversation starter, and the sound of the steam engine just adds to the atmosphere...

I have to say Ina Paarman does make excellent spices, stocks etc and all their spices are MSG-free and tastes very good.
If you live in Africa you have to be a kind of jack of all traits I think that is why you experiance your collegues the way you do. In my sector (engineering) South-African engineeris are known by the following sentance -work hard, party hard- hehehe. Strange for engineers...
On the topic of Biltong & Boerewors, have you tried good quality Chilli-Bytes, those are very nice... In fact in the video I used some chilli-byte spice mixed with lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and truffle salt to baste the chicken turned out awesome!

I didn't know about no MSG - makes me like them even more

Yes, that's certainly the case. I'm in that field, and 3 of my SA colleagues used to work for Toyota doing the automation.
Mind you, one built a gas-starter assisted charcoal spit. He also added a leaf blower to really help get the charcoal going. It was so over-engineered to the point where the first night he tried it, with all of us there to watch - he lit it, and merely a minute later the flames licked the eaves of the house & nearly set fire to the place!
His Braai was an old truck wheel with a grille over the top.

No I haven't. I'll have to see if I can get them here in Sydney. Thanks for the info.

Ok now for some pics:

First off the planning phase the system is drawn in SolidWorks and engineering drawings are made of all parts to be manufactured:


next some photos of the manufactured parts:

and here was the first test of the spit-braai making a beef roast wrapped in bacon:

Note in this picture the lid has not yet been made and the insulation for the pipes has not yet been fitted, also at the moment I am using another steam engine (I have 4 all with differing designs)
