Default I missed the 'cooking chicken on the gas grill spit' posts.........

.......sorry if this a repeat question:

We plan to cook 2 medium size chickens outside on our new gas grill using a
an electric rotating skewer/spit and the infra red cooker option on the
grill.

Any suggestions on:

1. Cooking instructions.

2. Seasoning suggestions.

Thanks in advance folks. You have always been very helpful. :-)

Most grills require removal of the cooking grate when using
rotisserie... be sure ther eare no obstructions

Use low indirect heat.

Be sure to properly balance food on the spit, and never ever leave an
operating rotisserie unattended.

2. Seasoning suggestions.


Whatever you like. I like Penzeys Adobo.

Truss them up on the spit well. As they cook, they tend to loosen. Does the
spit come with a weight to act as a counter balance? If so, try to get it
as even as possible to lessen the load on the motor. Be sure the spit turns
freely and nothing hits.

I also have an infra-red burner. I start it on high and reduce it after
about 30 minutes. A Perdue oven stuffer takes about 90 minutes to cook.
Smaller birds about 60 to 75.

I put a pan under the bird to catch the drippings. Put a tad of water in it
to keep it from drying out and then you can make a gravy or use the dripping
in a stock as you see fit.

Season as you would a roasted chicken. Usually some salt, pepper, garlic,
whatever. You can use commercial grilling seasonings also, like McCormick
Grill Mates. If you want bbq sauce, put that on for just the last 10
minutes or so.

After the chicks are done, I turn off the heat and let them spin another
five minutes, then let them rest on a platter for about 15 before cutting.

Thanks for the heads up... I still haven't read the instruction manual
of my "newish" Cheap Ass gas BBQ (how hard is it to turn on the gas?)
and adding a rotisserie attachment is in mind for the future (End of
Summer Sales are coming soon). Did I sound like a real man's man?

Not having any experience of any sort with rotisserie cooking, I would
have left the grill grates in the BBQ and regulated the heat by
selecting which burners to turn on. It was a non-issue to this point
because I was totally ignorant on the subject. So, thanks to both of
you for the information. Now I know I should (find and) consult the
manual after I buy a rotisserie.

LOL!

For future reference, I want to point out that Google is your friend.
You can locate cooking directions easily via Google. The company who
made your barbecue grill might even have a web site with cooking
information on it. You can also go to http://groups.google.com and look
up previously posted articles in this newsgroup and many others.

Thanks to all for the advice, most especially Edwin. ;-)

Stan, I do not need a lecture on how to use google. If my question bothered
you all you had to do was ignore it.

Thank you for your expert advice Edwin. I cooked the chickens this week
following you directions and they turned out excellent.

We spend a whole $6.50 for a chickens weighing in at 9 pounds and ended up
with 2 nights worth of dinner.

Thank you.
