BBQ Creations B-005 PortaSpit Charcoal Rotisserie Grill (Detailed Honest Review)
Updated: Aug 31, 2020
Camping out and tasting the smokey delicious flavor of whole rotisserie pork belly is an experience adventurers and travelers alike would want to experience. And there is nothing better than a very compact charcoal rotisserie grill like the BBQ Creations B-005 PortaSpit Charcoal Rotisserie Grill.
Being a more compact version of the BBQ Creations B-007, its overall dimensions are 21 x 8.2 x19 inches, while having a grilling surface of 18.3 x 8.2 inches. It has a total Rotisserie Spit Rod length of 20.8 inches paired with a battery-operated motor that can turn up to 12 pounds of meat.
The entire charcoal rotisserie grill only weighs 17 pounds and since the motor is battery operated, it only needs 1 “D” battery and it can run up to 6 hours.
The construction of the B-005 is made from stainless steel so it’s a pretty solid build while being lightweight enough to maximize portability. Out of the box, it contains the different components for assembly but assembling it is very easy and wouldn’t take long. If you’re only looking for rotisserie small meats, this is definitely one of the most compact charcoal rotisserie grills in the market.
The cooking experience is practically the same with the BBQ Creations B-007 but with a smaller footprint. It maintains its interesting and amazing design of having the charcoal placement at the sides to avoid the sudden burst of flames due to the oil/fat dripping down from the meat. That way, you can really ensure an even cook all throughout the meat.
You can fit in here up to 12 pounds, comfortably around 10 pounds, of pork belly or other types of meat. If you wish to have rotisserie chicken, you can fit two in here but I’d recommend only one chicken to evenly cook the chicken at all sides. If you’re cooking for a rotisserie chicken or any meat that’s quite on the heavy side, make sure to center the weight evenly on the Rotisserie spit Rod to prevent it from flopping.
It also includes a BBQ grilling rack which is perfect for cooking steaks, hotdogs, burgers, and more!
