    The more I look at it the more I like it. Is yours the 36" or 48". How well is it constructed?

    I got the 36". It really is pretty solid. The rotis is kind-of a joke but everything else works easy and good. What is nice is when you need to add more charcoal/wood, just hoist up the grate and put it in . What is bad is no air vents in the bottom, but that could be fixed w/some "bale'n wire and gray tape", like any other farmer would do.

    If you guys are more interested, I can take more pix. The site I ordered it from was great, no s&h and everything was packed very well. Easy to put together, and it is heavy.

    With a hand rotisserie don't you just turn it occasionally to get even cooking?I don't think it is intended that you stand there and continually turn it.

    Yep, your right Paul. And you can lower the rotis to about any height. I'm sure it would work fine. One problem is you'd need to take all the collars off to put the rod thru the meat. But that would take a whole 5 min.

    Most all adjustments are made w/allen wrenches that are provided. One is on one side the other is what holds the rotis/grate cable in place.

    The pic shows 1 chim of coal. We used 2 to do burgers, dogs and smores. Lasted plenty long for us.

    I think it was a great investment Jason.Anything that you can have the family do together is great!

    Make sure you show us its final spot once the weather shapes up!

    BTW, it really is for the wife and kids. I like my pellet pooper and the one touch. But this thing will be fun w/wood, my next project...look'n for trees.
    Nice toy Jase, but for that much $, it really ought to have a motor.
