Chasin the design of a portable spit roaster

Postby dearis » Wed Apr 19, 2006 12:19 am

G'day,

new to the forum, howdy all. I am chasing the net for the design of a portable spit roaster, something about the size of a 20-22 gallon drum, run on gas powered by a generator or car battery. I have searched but been unable to locate.

Hope everyone had a great w/e

Regards Darren
Got my first cod over easter, been chasing it for over 22 years and it was worth the wait, he went 31 pound :)

If your looking for the 'design' of one, I assume you plan on making it yourself? If you can make it yourself, shouldn't you be able to design it too?

I reckon I could come up with a half decent design. You can get little battery powered motors to turn it easily enough, then just need 1/2 cut 44 Gal Drum with long BBQ burner mounted at the bottom, plumbed to a gas bottle :idea:
A friend of mine made a real basic one outta just 5mm steel, and removable grilles so it can be a BBQ or a Spit. Runs on wood fuel though :wink:

was going to use a 20-22gallon drum(i think that size is correct but unsure) want to attach it to the tow bars of the trailer i think 44 would be too big.
