Rotisserie Grilling Gas and Charcoal

Written by

Kevin Kolman

Does rotisserie cooking look intimidating? We’ve taken the mystique out of rotisserie grilling for charcoal and gas enthusiasts alike.

When using a rotisserie always remember these guidelines below:

  1. First and foremost, most Weber rotisseries (gas or charcoal) have a 20 lb. maximum weight limit. The Spirit II rotisseries will hold 10 lbs max. 
  2. Almost any recipe that calls for indirect heat on a large piece of protein will work well on the rotisserie.
  3. When doing rotisserie cooking, using a drip-pan filled with veggies and broth or water can help to impart a great flavor to your food, while also catching the drips to be used later as gravy. 
  4. Always refer to your instruction sheet or manual for proper safety and lighting instructions before turning on the rotisserie
  5. The cooking time and temperature will be the same as with other methods.
  6. Be sure to always use two grill mitts for safety.
  7. When using the Infrared burner in the back of the Summit® S-670™ gas grill, turn it off after 20 minutes of grilling, and finish the food over indirect heat.
