If you’re looking for a decent-sized Charcoal Rotisserie Grill with portability in mind that’s perfect both at home and at camps, this could be the one for you.


With overall dimensions of 32 x 8.5 x 22 inches, it has around 29 x 8.5 inches of grilling surface. It has a decent spit length of 31.8 inches. Instead of having the motor run through a plug, it has a 12-hour battery operated rotating spit motor than can carry up to 30 pounds of meat.

You can also easily fit in 2-3 chickens for Rotisserie at the same time! The total weight of this charcoal rotisserie grill is 17 pounds and since the motor is battery operated, it only needs 3 “AA” batteries.


BUILD


The entire Charcoal Rotisserie Grill is made of stainless steel, making for quite a solid build. Out of the box, it comes in parts for assembly but the entire process was very easy and didn’t take too long. The entire build is quite compact compared to other Charcoal Rotisserie Grills available but it makes up for its portability having a battery-operated motor, foldup legs, if you don’t plan to rotisserie any more than 30 pounds of pig or meat, this is definitely the one for you.


COOKING EXPERIENCE

Cooking with the B-007 was definitely interesting and amazing because this grill charcoal placement is at the sides therefore the meat doesn’t suddenly go up in flames when its oil/fat drops down. Using lump charcoal also helps the quality of the heat and the period of time. The height of the Rotisserie Spit Rod can also be quickly adjusted for more flexibility. They even provided a rough drawing of how to avoid flames going up!

When cooking these large cuts of meat, you have to provide it enough cooking time. It usually takes right around 3-4 hours for a slow roast on large meats such as pork bellies and pork rib roasts. A slow and steady rotisserie makes up for quite a crispy exterior and deliciously juicy interior of the meat!


If you plan on having rotisserie chickens, you can comfortably fit in 2-3 simultaneously and with its included standard BBQ grilling rack, you can conveniently use it to barbeque steaks, hotdogs, patties, and more!

CLEANING EXPERIENCE


Since it is made of stainless steel, it was very easy to clean. Its more compact size makes up for a low maintenance rotisserie experience. Since all pieces are easily removable, all pieces are quick to clean, and throwing out the ashes was hassle-free.


REMINDERS


One big and obvious reminder to take into consideration is its size. This charcoal rotisserie grill is definitely smaller compared to other charcoal rotisserie grills in the market. I’d recommend you to other larger sized charcoal rotisserie grills if you plan on to rotisserie anything larger than 30 pounds and longer than 31 inches. Also, it can have quite sharp edges and welding could be improved.
