    Default EZ Que vs. Weber

    I'm thinking about asking Santa for a rotisserie for my 22.5" Weber One Touch Silver. Which is better?

    EZ Que-no contest at all.

    Better motor, 304 stainless ring, heavier gauge metal, and the EZque cradle beats a spit all to he!!.

    I'm not sure if you need to be a member to read the post. If so some members are having problems with EZ Que. Not getting what they paid for and no replies to email.

    Thread came through clear for me, and I'm not a member. Doesn't sound like EZ Que is getting the job done.

    I tried to call Shane ( EZ Que) yesterday and the phone rang busy all day.

    I own both the EZ-Que and Weber rotisserie rings and anyone would be pleased with either one.

    The only differences between the two is the EZ-Que is two pieces rolled and formed stainless steel that bolt together to form the ring, the tabs that rest on the kettle are punched, and there are two spit rod cutouts.

    Weber on the other hand is a one piece porcelain coated ring with welded tabs and only one cutout and the spit rod is inserted through a hole on the motor mount side. **Advantage EZ-Que, but easily attainable buy making two cuts on each side of the rod hole**

    The Cradle vs the Spit Rod and forks- no brainer! **Advantage EZ-Que**

    The motors both have plastic gears and the EZ-Que has a Stainless steel housing and IMO I feel the weight ratings of the EZ-Que are overstated.

    Weber does not show the rotisserie ring on its Accessories links on their website, and the last time I ordered replacement parts I inquired about it and was told they no longer stock it.

    I tried e-mailing and left phone messages to EZ-Que inquiring about the AC/DC motor availability and never got ANY response. I know from the bullet site others have tried to contact them with the same results and others have tried to order with PayPal and have been unsuccessful.

    I will say that if you want a ring, keep your eyes peeled on E-bay or Amazon
    and get one any way you can. Hopefully EZ-Que will bounce back or the guys at Cajun Bandit fill the void and market their own. I know B-O-B of Rib-O-Lator fame has some ideas in the works too.

    I love rotisserie cooking and even have a dedicated Weber gasser for a cofee roaster.

    Brian, as an owner of an EZ Que, and an ex owner of a weber rotiss, I must say the the motor of the EZ Que is much stronger than the Weber. I also has a slower rotation, which to me is an asset. It is also the quietest rotiss motor in that size range that I have experienced.

    I won't argue that, but after time, my EZ-Que motor has gotten louder, and has a tendency to develope a "flat spot", where the the cradle tends to drop on the downward stroke of the revolution.

    I hope the economy or whatever has taken its toll on EZ-Que turns around and they can get back on track and are able to keep doing what they do best!
