Default Advise... Santa Maria Rotisserie conversion

I'm hoping to get the boards input and advise on ringing up a roti on my SM grill. I was thinking about the roti dwfisk put on that grill a little while back.
I think I like the onegrill but not sure what size would be best to fit my grill and what motor would be best also. I'm also open to other ideas. Oh and octoforks what do I need to do for these?
The cook grate is 33 wide. Her are a couple of pictures

This is how I made them for TropicDad, simple but they work great

It looks like you need the 37" spit rod. Just let me know, be happy to set you up with a set of brackets.

PS, if you don't have power nearby I've been real happy with the OneGrill DC motor.
PS#2, we sized TropicDad's brackets to use Keith's Octoforks

It doesn't need to be fancy. I use a extender made from a trashed road sign, a motor, spit, and attachments that I inherited from my Dad.

It doesn't seal, so it is basically always a high heat cook.

I talked with Kieth he steered my to the 5/16 47 inch kit I was thinking 37 like Dave said but I remeasured and the longer spit will all the counter balance to clear the outside of the grill body for more vertical range.

So I order the 47 kit and a 47 1/2 spit for later when I get his new toys or bigger meat.

If your cooking grate comes out of the frame i would just use the brackets it comes with and mount them to the side of the L framing. If it doesn't i would make something up like Dave mentioned. I also think it would be bad ass if you had dual rotis. One on either side

Yep, if you look at the photos in the link the chrome brackets are what come with the kit, the black "L" brackets I made are bolted to the cooking grate and then the brackets in the kit are bolted to them to raise the rotisserie 6"-8" above the cooking grate.

Yea even the 18.5 CB had a special size spit made for their kit which with the handle is 28"

Definitely when you consider the extra to go to the motor and plenty for the plastic handle to extend on the other side an additional 10" is comfortable. Since your pit is 34" and your rod is 45" you'll be golden.

this is my plan right now, but if I find a reason I'll rig up one like Dave did.

Great info on this thread and good luck Tom! Dave is a great help every time and gives great pointers on which route to go. I haven't got around to it but I want to install one on my SM grill also. Initially I wanted to do it in my stick burner oven but the SM is more practical. I'll be watching this thread.

This is the one I've got from SB BBQ Outfitters.
