    Default Rotisserie for the weber

    Looking for a great way to do rotisserie on the 22.5 weber with out spending 150$. Was thinking a char griller rotisserie with some sort of mod on the weber. I dont have any drums in my area. I have to buy them for 85$ a piece. So i would need to use something else that is non toxic in the heat.

    Any ideas?

    thanx

    Matt

    Get 10 ' of 12" aluminum roof flashing, ekpand it out to fit the inside of the kettle drill and machine screw it together cut the notches for the spit. It will fit snug and be strong. and is redially available and inexpensive.

    They build gassers out of Aluminum, pots and pans, electric skillets and George Foreman grills. so I think you will be ok.

    The char griller is probly fine. I never used one. I like my Master Forge all stainless. $69 at Lowes and comes with 2 sets of forks and counter weight.

    LTY, why don;t you fill out your profile and then everyone will know where you are. Perhaps someone can locate a drum supplier for you.

    New drums should not cost $85.
