Spit roasts
« on: March 17, 2014, 07:42:44 pm »
Anyone any experience of these?

this is something I'd like to try in the summer, as in try it myself, not get a company in to do it.

We have Kune Kunes and I think they would be an ideal size for a small BBQ or family gathering.

Having a look at the various methods and equipment used just now but I do like the look of the side/indirect heating with the large drip try below.

We are rearing a one at the moment for my mates wedding. I agree with the side heating ones. The big ones that enclose the full pig miss the drama in my eyes
