This is mostly due it is a universal rotisserie kit.
The rotisserie cooking on it was smooth and as what you expect. It can comfortably fit in 2 small-sized chickens, 1 large-sized bird, or any other cuts of meat such as ribs and loins.

The 4-watt motor worked great and didn’t show any signs of struggle turning that much weight.
Advertised to fit most 2 to 6 burner grills, be reminded of its original dimensions as it may be installed on your 6-burner grills, but it might definitely be smaller than you plan on cooking on it.
