    Hi..spun another bird on the rotisserie yesterday, smoked with cherry and hickory. Got a late start so bumped the temp a little, 330°~340°. Injected with some marinade just before smoking (forgot to inject it the night before [​IMG]).

    Not the best one, but still good [​IMG]. Meat texture and juiciness was not as good because the injection didn't have time to break things down overnight. Also temp should have been more like 325°, but this was an express job and cut up for my lunches (love smoked turkey sandwiches).

    The bird was a 16lbs, done in a little over 3 hrs.

    On and ready



    1 hr, sprayed with Pam. Internal temp 92°


    2 hrs, internal temp 129°


    3 hrs and 10 min, internal temp 166°. Done [​IMG]. Nice smoky flavor and very crispy. Still plenty juicy [​IMG].

    Excellent job! How'd you keep your meat therm from wrapping around the rotisserie?

    how do you keep the therm. wire from tangling? or, did you pull it out before closing the lid.

    Thanks for the nice comments [​IMG].

    I sneak the wire through the rod bearing along side the rod (rod has flat edges) and connect the display to the handle with rubber band technology [​IMG].

    [​IMG] Now I have to add a THIRD tool to my tool box [​IMG]
    I have the wd-40 for when it should move and doesn't .
    Duct tape for when it shouldn't move and does .
    Now I have to add the High Tech rubberbands for a temporary duct tape job without the sticky residue . [​IMG]

    Great tip for the spinners too ,[​IMG]

    That's it. I gotta build a plug-in device to allow this to work without the rubber band... ;{) Nice bodge-up tho!
