Just Watched "Super Size Me." 5985
I saw "Super Size Me." The filmmaker (can't remember his name) is a very appealing guy, and is great on camera. Somebody that a lot of people could imagine being their friend. And his filmmaking...
Truss them up on the spit well. As they cook, they tend to loosen. Does the spit come with a weight to act as a counter balance? If so, try to get it as even as possible to lessen the load on the motor. Be sure the spit turns freely and nothing hits.
I also have an infra-red burner. I start it on high and reduce it after about 30 minutes. A Perdue oven stuffer takes about 90 minutes to cook. Smaller birds about 60 to 75.
I put a pan under the bird to catch the drippings. Put a tad of water in it to keep it from drying out and then you can make a gravy or use the dripping in a stock as you see fit.
Season as you would a roasted chicken. Usually some salt, pepper, garlic, whatever. You can use commercial grilling seasonings also, like McCormick Grill Mates. If you want bbq sauce, put that on for just the last 10 minutes or so.
After the chicks are done, I turn off the heat and let them spin another five minutes, then let them rest on a platter for about 15 before cutting. -- Ed
