That'll likely be a collectors item someday. In the meantime you and Robert will have to take it along ice fishing this winter.  :happy1:

Sadly, Ron Popeil passed away this past July. May he rest in peace...but wait, there's more!

Had my ALDI gift steak....and I cut it in half. 12 oz of medium-rare juicy YUM!
It was a great steak! (you were right, Mikey) Didn't have room for the broccoli salad, barely made it thru all this. Other half went in the freezer for another time.  :tongue:

Izzat gas or charcoal? Either way it'd be delish! Something I haven't tried on the charcoal rotisserie is a whole chicky. Might be time to locate one.  :scratch:

Have always wanted a rotisserie on a grill.  We did get a Ronco thing that actually works great for chicky or prime rib.  Maybe I could take it apart and make it fit the pellet grill?

We haven't used it in years and surprisingly it works great.  If the wife saw me try to modify it she would probably modify me and that might not be a good thing.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

It's with a good old Weber kettle with charcoal & direct heat, had 1 for a long time. We do have a Weber gas grill up here as well. Actually wore out the rotisserie motor on 1 of the last birds, had a new 1 within ~ a week. ;) :rolleyes: :laugh:  Found an extra counterweight at a garage sale up here this year too, they weren't even sure what it was.

Those counterweights aren't something you run across every day altho like you said, if you go direct to Weber, you can get about anything you want and it shows up quickly. I opted for a couple more of the rotisserie forks so I could do 2 half legs. Talked to an actual human being to do it. Odd.

Unable to locate a whole chicken locally yesterday & the chicky thighs weren't on sale in the grocery store. At ~ $7.50 for 8 thighs I punted & got marinated chicken breasts at the meat market. Also got some of Rebs pigger steaks. Been a while. Prolly grill the latter tonite & let the breasts thaw for tomorrow nite. Been working my way thru the last of the lamb burgers I left for Mrs. Cheviot. She likely thought she was doing me a big favor leaving them for me. Not so. I made those well done for her so they're devoid of any fat. Like well done hamburgers warmed up after grilling, they make good Ruby food and that's about it.

I've always wanted a rotisserie for the big charcoal unit at home, but it's on its last leg now. The oldest and I are lake side which we worked up an appetite,  one burglar left after doing our best emptying the fridge for the season..lol.

Izzat one of those 26" behemoths boober? I bet Mrs. Boober had a hard time leaving your buns alone after that!  :evil:

Still enjoying my fortress of solitude here. Only one here to bug is me Ruby. She snores a lot but she's a purty good fat eater and plate licker. Pigger steaks a la Reb only with my secret Dotch BBQ sauce. Each batch is unique, sorta like Pfeiffer's beer, where no two tasted the same!  :shocked: Plenty of homegrown garden sides to go with as well as COVID meds.  :happy1:

Well, guess we can talk about pig chops here without Glenn going  :tut: :tut: :tut:        :rotflmao::surrender:

Out grocery shopping this AM, picked up my 'scrip at Walfart, haven't shopped there in about two months. Thought I'd see if anything had changed and grab a 12 pack of Diet-pepsi before I left. Nope. Outta Pepsi. Outta A&W root beer. Lunch meat aisle was decimated. Outta spring water. And...not ONE single carton of cottage cheese. That dairy cooler was empty. I had to just laugh, how the he** do they even stay in business?!? Anyway, walked past the meat aisle, guy was putting out pkgs of pig chops...not center cuts, not boneless, just some raggedy lookin' kinda thin regular chops....$5.99 a lb!  :shocked: You gotta be sh***n me!!! I couldn't believe it! Glad I was headed to ALDI's for groceries...got some nice, thick, pigger chops there for $2.99 lb, reg price.

This thread has me hungry and it's not even 10am.

Agreed about rotisserie cooking,as a kids my mother had a big ole electric cooker with a built in rotissrie she used for all the game I brought home,rabbits,pheants ducks etc she did a good job cooking wild game,,then fast forward early 2000 bought a Ron Popel rotisserie,used it at least once/week,did the best prime rib on that thing.

to day it's the webber charcoal grill rotisserie,most often just for birds over indirect and a pool of herbs steaming below the birds on the spit,fantastic.

I know I do c-cuts a lot because they're relatively cheap, available & easy, sorta like glenn!  :rotflmao: The real stars of the show tho have been the fall veggies. Might've sliced up the last of the cukes.  :sad: Mrs. Cheviot has been busy yapping on the phone so I slipped this batch in under the radar.  :happy1:

Gonna do a nice rack of extra meaty baby backs.  I usually wrap in foil after a couple of hours but I am going to do the no peek method today.  Put in smoker at 225.  Will put some sauce on them at the 4.5 hr mark then take out at 5 hours.
