So, I made a rotisserie ring for my UDS and have been playing with it quite a bit lately.

It started with making sure the fire basket could sit up near the top cooking grate:

Then, I took a cross-section of a different drum, mounted motor and spit brackets and handles and cut out some slots for the spit to sit down in, capped it with the Weber dome like this:

Then, I rubbed up some whole chix:

...put 'em on the spit over the coals:

...let 'em roll for an hour and a half:

Then ATE 'EM! :becky:

Then, this weekend, I got to use my New-to-me Rib-o-lator. I was a little disappointed that the trays don't fit spares (even trimmed to a STL cut), but I'll get some baby backs some time and try those. However, not to be discouraged, I instead used it as a "Wing-o-lator":

Nope. The rib-o-lator did it's job perfectly.

It's easier even than the UDS itself.

Ah. That makes more sense. I didn't fab the ROL. It's a genuine, patent pending model.
