My new Napoleon BBQ included a really nice rotisserie so I was looking forward to testing it out. It’s a genuine Napoleon rotisserie and is really high quality, it feels like it will last for ever as all metal parts are heavy duty steel. When I was deciding between the Napoleon and the Weber a tick in the Napoleons corner was that it included the rotisserie, with the Weber I would need to purchase the Rotisserie as an extra which runs at around $90+TAX plus the Weber unit was not as heavy duty as the Napoleon rotisserie.
It’s really easy to attach the rotisserie to the BBQ so you’re ready to use it within minutes, one thing to consider when choosing your BBQ location if using a rotisserie is how close it is to the power outlet as I had to run a good 25 feet of cord across my deck. At some point in time I will run a power cord underneath my deck and pop it up right next the BBQ for a tidy and convenient connection.
If your BBQ doesn’t have an infra red burner at the back you can use indirect heat. When cooking with the rotisserie don’t forget to use something to catch the drippings, I just use an old baking tray as you can just wash it and reuse rather than use the foil throwaway trays, this way it saves money and is better for the environment. This unit rotates nice and slowly and at an even pace so it will deliver great results providing you’re cooking at the right temperature, if you don’t have a rotisserie already I highly recommend you get one as it adds to the range of dishes you can do on the BBQ and it’s just so easy to use, your guests will love it!
