It means that those kick arse rotisserie units will probably be available for a deep discount again. Fark! Now I gotta buy one

Yep! It may take awhile to get them but you probably won't get a better price. I don't have a link to the Kickstarter but here's a link to the product if you haven't seen it before. http://carsonrodizio.com

Can someone explain this kickstarter thing? People invest, donate, buy new things at a discount? Just don't know how KS works. Thanks

Yeah... Kickstarter?!?!? I had one on my bike when I was in my 20's... But I don't think that's what you're talking about.

No link to the Kickstarter site yet. I'll find it tomorrow and post here

Kickstarter is a way for people with a product idea to get some funding to bring their idea to fruition. Often times you're getting a discounted price for an item, but you may wait a long time for the product to actually make it through production. This one is a bit different. He's already done a KS campaign and those units have shipped. I think he's doing it again to get the cash together for another production run. Some campaigns never see the light of day but since this one has done it already (meaning all the engineering is done etc) it should be pretty smooth.

Wish more brethren had one. Looks sweet but is it worth having one or is it gimmicky and will sit somewhere for years after its first use?

Wonder how heat tolerant are the motors and cabling? Would be tricky to make sure those things are away from the heat.

I pledged one, but would like to pledge for 3 units but there's no option to do that. Anyone knows how?
Do I just pledge triple the amount?

I sent them a message on Kickstarter about this and here is the response...

Depending on the application you'll want to mask the heat as much as possible. The kit's motor is extremely durable though. Its been handling as much as 500 degrees for the past few years we've been testing it. The kit comes with a 3 year warranty. Here's a quick trouble shooting video to check out. You'll be able to get a good look at how everything is machined. https://vimeo.com/137842997

For gas all you do is wrap the part of the burners that sits underneath the kit with aluminum foil. For the egg you sit the kit as far back as you can and concentrate the coals more towards the front.

Put it this way we had it cooking on well over 700 degrees this past weekend. Don't recommend it but it can handle it. Opened her up to check for any damage and everything was perfect!

Send them a message on Kickstarter. I received a response in less than 10 minutes.

You just go back in and change the pledge amount to 3x the amount. Once it's complete you will get a survey and you just put on the survey how many you pledged for.

That was my first thought...how much would I use it?

I mean, for rotisserie, I have my weber basic kettle grill with the rotisserie insert and motor...and I don't often think to rotisserie something small....but only larger things, like a standing rib roast or a couple of chickens, a turkey, etc.

Also, I was looking and wondering if putting this thing with the motor unit ON my BGE XL...with the lid open, I'm thinking I'd pretty much smelt the thing into ingots... not to mention the carbonization of any food attached to it.
:)


However, a neat concept, and it has 59 days to go on the kickstarter...although the lower Early Bird ones where the price is $250 for a $498 item are about half filled....that is tempting.

I'm debating, as that I want to get more add-ons for the recently purchased BGE....

Hmmm...

Seems like a neat gadget but honestly it doesn't really excite me that much.
I just don't see me spinning food. The Jonny rotisserie was cool! I love the photo of all them beef ribs out in the desert. Always thought it would be cool to spin chickens but my chicken comes out great without it so why bother. Not sure why I would spin anything else.
Now, if I'm dropping 250 bucks on another cooking tool it's gonna be the blackstone griddle.
I could see using that thing allot!
Hope they meet their goal.

I love dizzy food, not quite sure i like the small portion stuff but it would be great for party food. I want to spin bigger stuff more like pork butts, whole or halved birds and spare ribs.

Roti food just tastes better for what ever reason.

Three of these would fit perfectly on my 48x30 Santa Maria grill in the Lonestar Grillz trailer that I ordered.

Looks somewhat like this:

I've been looking for a rotisserie solution for that Santa Maria, and looks like this may be the answer.

I just about got dizzy seeing your new avatar.:becky:

I've been contemplating some type of a spinning apparatus and this did it. I skewer a lot of meat so definitely going to use it a lot. Agreed on the roti food tasting better.

The specs say it'll handle up about 30lbs of grub. They've got some bigger skewers with tines that fork out for doing things like roasts.

I got mine several days ago and hope to put it through its paces over Labor Day weekend.

Do me a favor and measure the skewers diameter and let me know if it's 1/2" or skinnier.

The small is about 7/16" wide and the medium is about 9/16". They're not really flat, they're rounded or V shaped.

Here's a link to the 3-tined skewer for larger cuts of meat. (http://carsonrodizio.com/store/carson-3-prong-Rotisserie-skewer) and here is a link to a similarly styled 5-tined skewer. (http://carsonrodizio.com/store/carson-4-prong-rotisserie-skewer)

If you watch any of the vids, they do roti some pretty large cuts of meat. Will this fit as large of cut as a traditional roti? I doubt it, but it will still fit a good amount.

Thanks for those links. Looking at the large one I can see that working for very light and small roasts..3-4 lbs but not much bigger and still balance. Those forks do open it up to more things like the holding hotdogs concept.

How often do you have so many people over that your are going to need that? Plus, the top temp has to be way cooler than the bottom and you have fat spewing all over your grill.. I'm out!

That's what I wonder about. It looks cool, but how much would I use it?

I've got one from the first go around, along with his original suitcase cooker. The new kit is amazing. It is so over engineered that it is going to last a long time. For the small footprint it takes up, you can cook a boatload of food on it. I have done breakfast, lunch and dinner on it. You will not be disappointed.

09-03-2015, 03:18 PM
What improvements over the first go around? Also if he doesn't hit his 50k will we still get the cooker or does it have to hit its mark?

alecksjaycubs
09-03-2015, 04:52 PM
I don't know of any improvement on this one. I think he's just raising the cash for the next production run. His last campaign didn't reach goal either (it was set really high, this one is much more achievable) and everybody who pledged DID get their units. That's just the history of his first KS, and of course has nothing to do with this one, but it's a good track record.

For today, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 ONLY, for those of you that picked up the Early Bird for $250, if you upgrade it to Early Adapter ($48 more) you get a tumbler skewer thrown in. Or if you haven't pledged at all and pledge for the Early Adapter you get the tumbler. Today only. It's a little more confusing if you already pledged for the Early Adapter. Below is the text from the promotional email...

---
Today is "FREE KICKSTART FRIDAY" Pledge to back our Kickstarter project right now and get a FREE tumbler skewer valued at $136 included with your pledge today only. (Applies to EARLY ADAPTER BACKERS or more!)
If you have already pledged for the Early Bird and still want this deal no problem. Simply increase your pledge to the EARLY ADAPTER BACKER or more and we got you!
If you've already pledged for the EARLY ADAPTER BACKER and still want in on the promo no problem. Either cancel it and pledge it again so we can have record of it being pledge today or simply increase your pledge and we got you.

He also has the tumbler skewer as a standalone too.

Tomorrow only, if you pledge Tailgater Backer ($375) you get 6 extra Medium Skewers in addition to the 7 Medium Skewers and 2 small Skewers that it contains.

So for those of you on the fence, let's get this funded.

It sucks to be retired on a fixed income!!!!!

About 3 months ago, we (DD, SIL and SWMBO) ate at Fogo de Chao in Austin. It is a Brazilian steak house. That was the most deliciously awesome experience I've ever had eating meat. If this thing will let you cook like those chefs at Fogo did, it is well worth the price.
