Hey, all -

I've had an "old-school" electric rotisserie (Open Hearth by Farberware) for years - I am sure many of you have seen them, possibly in your mother's, grandmother's or aunt's kitchen. It looks very similar to this, except for some colour differences:


I was in the mood to rotisserie something this weekend, but since we were going to be out of town for part of the day, I decided to use the electric so that all my older son had to do was baste it now and then, rather than tend a fire etc. 

Alas, when I went to get my trusty Farberware rotisserie, it appeared that some pieces might be missing (or actually temporarily misplaced, knowing my house). I thought that might put off my spin-cooking for the foreseeable future, until I found the pieces again - but then while scrolling through the local yard sale on FaceBook, I found this for almost nothing (sample photo):


The price was right, so I picked it up; I'm hoping to try it this weekend with a chicken or a pork loin, but maybe I will get crazy and do something else. I haven't had a chance to look through it yet, and I am sure that a few of the "extras" are missing such as the kabob skewers etc., but not big deal.

More later ~

That's definitely on the list, Dave! 

Lamb is a bit difficult to come by here - or, I should say, is rather expensive; however, I'm thinking a beef or beef/pork mixture will work just fine.

First chicken turned out very nicely. I basted it with homemade barbecue sause as it cooked, and results were - as they say - finger-lickin'! 

One thing I don't like is that the minimum temperature is 3550 degrees (to a maximum of 500), but aside from that, this is a pretty good little unit!
