We grill a whole chicken at least once a week and more often than not, on a rotisserie. Whether grilled over charcoal or gas, a rotisserie chicken is a meal of simplistic beauty. The slow roasting and self-basting action of the rotisserie creates one of the most succulent pieces of meat to grace my deck.
While my go-to chicken is a favorite, It is also only one of many meals I mount on a spit. When it comes to grilling, I like options, and a rotisserie is another great option in my grilling tool box. Here are some ideas for your next rotisserie dinner:
Ribs: Yes, ribs. One of my Dad’s favorite meals is when I use the rotisserie to grill ribs. On the Summit Grill Center, I can thread two racks of babyback ribs down the spit. They are different and delicious.
Turkey: If you can rotisserie a chicken, you can rotisserie a turkey. Different meal. Same awesome results.
Pineapple: The rotisserie handles more than dinner, it tackles dessert too. Imagine the looks from your guest’s as they see a sugary glazed pineapple spinning on the grill as they finish their meals.
Next time you fire up the grill, remember the rotisserie isn’t just for chicken.
