•
Food preparation steps are the same for rotisserie
cooking as for regular cooking. Indicated timing in
cookbook will be the same.
•
Preheat barbecue for 10 minutes with the lid down.
•
All cooking is done with the lid down.
•
Cook by Indirect Method as indicated in recipe.
•
If foods are too heavy or are irregular shapes, they
may not rotate well and should be cooked by the
Indirect Cooking Method without using
the rotisserie.
•
When meat is done, we recommend that you shut
your grill off and let food rest for a few minutes
before removing from the Rotisserie Basket.
8. Place Rotisserie in grill and allow to rotate a few
turns. If food shrinks and/or becomes unsecure, readjust Meat Clamp as required to secure food in
Rotisserie basket.
WARNING: Rotisserie is metal and will be hot.
9. Remove Rotisserie with food from cooking box before
preheating. Preheat barbecue for 10 minutes with lid
down. Follow cooking instructions in your Weber Gas
Barbecue cookbook and adjust the burners as
needed.
•
Carefully open Meat Clamps and remove food with
a fork and/or tongs from Rotisserie Basket and
place food onto plate or plater.
•
Remove Rotisserie Basket from cooking box once
you are completed with cooking and clean
thoroughly.
Wear oven mits to protect hands during Meat
Clamp adjustment and movement of the
rotisserie.
10. Return rotisserie to the cooking box.
11. Turn the motor on and begin cooking.
12. Check on Meat Clamps periodically making sure
clamps are securely holding food in place.
CAUTION: Re-adjustment of Meat Clamp may be
required more than once during cooking due to
food shrinkage.
WARNING: Rotisserie is metal and will be hot.
Wear oven mits to protect hands during Meat
Clamp adjustment and movement of the
rotisserie.
Tips for Safe Cooking
•
ALWAYS wear protective gloves when handling your
rotisserie or handle.
•
SECURELY tighten thumb screws before starting your
rotisserie.
•
It is normal for meat to shrink during cooking. This can
cause the meat to move around in the Rotisserie
Basket or fall from the basket. It may be necessary to
STOP the rotisserie and secure the Meat Clamp(s),
making sure to once again tighten the Thumb Screws.
Cooking Instructions
•
When cooking more than one variety of meat (chicken
and roast), there is no need to balance the difference
in weights, as the basket is designed to carry the
weights evenly.
•
Can hold up to 2 ten pound whole chickens, whole
pork loin, boneless rump roast, prime rib, split chicken
breasts, ribs, 2 cornish hens, Italian or Polish
sausage, leg of lamb, turkey breasts, or turkey legs.
You can also cook a whole fish depending on its size.
•
Meats or poultry should be brought to room
temperature before cooking. (30 to 60 minutes should
be adequate for most foods. If frozen, defrost
completely before cooking.)
•
Tie meat or poultry with a string to make the shape
as uniform as possible before placing in basket.
•
Remove cooking grates and warming rack to allow
food to turn freely.
•
If you wish to save drippings for gravy, place a drip
pan in the center on top of the Flavorizer Bars before
positioning the rotisserie and food in
the barbecue.
Cleaning Notes
•
Always wash all components before assembly.
•
The rotisserie basket disassembles for easy cleaning in
a dish washer. Steel wool pads and/or grill brush may
be used for cleaning stubborn areas.
