Rotisserie Ovens has now gotten more features and functions and that shows to the huge collection and variety of Rotisserie Ovens and Accessories that you can find. Here, we tackle the different accessories that we all can make use of to make our delightful recipes!
1. Rotisserie Spit Rod
Rotisserie isn’t necessarily exclusive to be done on Rotisserie Ovens as it can be done with your current grill equipment! One of the basic elements of rotisserie is having a good Rotisserie Spit Rod to put the meats of our recipes.
An example of which is the OneGrill 60 Inch X 5/8 Inch Hexagon Stainless Steel Grill Rotisserie Spit Rod with 5/16 Inch Square Drive.
You wouldn’t go wrong with the OneGrill 60 Inch X 5/8 Inch Hexagon Stainless Steel Grill Rotisserie Spit Rod with 5/16 Inch Square Drive for your grills as at it is one of the most durable and solid ones out there because of its rugged rust and corrosion resistant 304 stainless steel construction. Its solid structure allows you for a greater variety of food weights without sacrificing strength compared to multi-piece hollow pipe style Rotisserie Spit Rods. It even comes with 45 inch, 53 inch, and 60-inch sizes!
It removes your worry such as bending and sagging due to various food weights. It can even hold up to 50lbs. without any problem. It is beautifully machined and the hex design makes it easy to rotate and hold in place with a C-clamp. If you’re looking for a quality spit rod, this is worth the investment.
Note: Before buying your Spit Rods, make sure it is compatible with the Rotisserie Ovens or Grills you have.
2. Rotisserie Forks
What almost always comes with Rotisserie Spit Rods are Spit Rod Meat Forks. There are a lot of choices out there and you wouldn’t really go wrong with these but what I recommend are the Skyflame Universal 304 Stainless Steel Rotisserie Meat Forks. It fits the following sizes: ½ inch and 3/8 inch hexagon, 3/8 inch and 5/16 inch square, & ½ inch round spit rods.
These are built with true 304 stainless steel construction all the way, much healthier than rusting type of forks, and makes cleaning absolutely easy. It features tapered prongs for easy insertion and removal, a thick collar design for added durability and you’ll definitely find that the large SS loop bolts to be very convenient.
The four tines hold things far more securely so it takes a lot less fiddling around to get things ready. The wing nut is thick and graved to a round rotisserie rod effortlessly. Ultimately, it has a superior machined solid hub with staked tines for added durability over comparable sheet metal fastening systems
These were even used to original meat forks on the Weber Charcoal Rotisserie. But you still need to pay attention to the different spit diameter sizes and select the right one perfect for your Rotisserie Spit Rods.
3. Motorized Rotisserie Spit Rods / Kettle Rotisserie Ring
Motorized Spit Rods have also become more accessible, making Rotisserie much more convenient and even results in much more evenly cooked dishes! One of the best-motorized rotisserie spits out there is the Weber 2290 22-Inch Charcoal Kettle Rotisserie.
The Weber 2290 22-Inch Charcoal Kettle Rotisserie fits all 22-inch charcoal kettle grills and has a durable and long-lasting motor, users even using it since 2012 for their Rotisserie activities!
It features a one-piece spit for greater strength that you can cook two chickens at the same time without ever needing a second spit rod. It comes along with two forks and when you plan on cooking two chickens at the same time, you can use the two forks that came with the kit to press the two birds together and hold them in place.
It has been tried and tested by many users and it stands out at how durable and strong the unit is, with users having used it for years. It has even been tested to cook on even a 21.67lb turkey! It comes along with a heavy-duty electric motor, wooden rod handle and porcelain-enameled ring to elevate the rotisserie to optimize grilling space.
Its drawback is the stability of the equipment when under operation. Depending on the weight of the meat being cooked, you have to take note not to go against its counterweight as it can slow down and imbalance the entire thing. But if the chickens were of similar weight, you shouldn't need the counterweight because their breast weight should cancel each other out.
4. Rotisserie U-Bolts
For large scale cooking such as whole pigs, hog, lambs, and turkeys, it can become more convenient with the use of fork U-bolts. One of the best rated Rotisserie Fork U-Bolt is the SpitJack Stainless Rotisserie Fork U-Bolt.
Using the SpitJack Stainless Rotisserie Fork U-Bolt secures that your rotisserie meat doesn’t move around when cooking, making sure it evenly cooks around the meat.
Varying at 5.5 inch and 7.5 inch sizes, it can carry up to a capacity of 7.5 lbs.! You’ll have to use 2 or more if you’re loading in weights above 75 lbs. It will fit in any Rotisserie Spit Rod of any shape to a maximum of 2 inches diameter.
It has a solid stainless steel construction throughout which removes the worry of bending and rusting. It’s also dishwasher safe! Fastens and tightens your meat as much as you need it, making it one of the most versatile and important Rotisserie Accessories.
5. Rotisserie Baskets
Another tool that makes your Rotisserie experience much wider with more selection of Rotisserie dishes is Rotisserie Baskets. Grill baskets do have a variety of shapes and sizes so you can definitely explore and choose one perfect for your Rotisserie dish! For Round Rotisserie Baskets, we recommend the onlyfire 17-inch Stainless Steel Round Tumble Rotisserie Spit Rod Basket.
These have been tested countless times with chicken, turkey, fish meat, burgers, sausages, & vegetables and it does the job perfectly. Though, you have to be careful in putting smaller sized meat, such as Chicken wings inside the basket as the slats could be too far apart.
These are one of the best constructed with a stainless steel build, easiest to use with its patented thumbscrew to clamp on the spit rod, and to clean Round Tumble Baskets out there – you can just soak it for a short period, and using a brush is more effective than a sponge as it lets you get in between each bar. It also has a two lock construction to easily open the basket when needed and secure enough to remove any worries falling apart despite rolling.
Its dimensions are 17’’ X 6.7’’ X 6.1’’, 15.35’’ excluding the two ears for inserting the Rotisserie Spit Rod, and a 3.54’’ width on the bottom touched ground. It fits to 1/2” Hexagon, 3/8" Hexagon, 3/8" Square & 5/16" Square Rotisserie Spit Rods. These are mostly used on almost all grillers.
If you wish to have the flat version of the basket, you can choose only fire 6042 BBQ Stainless Steel Flat Spit Rotisserie Grill Basket.
It basically has right about the same functions and features as the onlyfire 17-inch Stainless Steel Round Tumble Rotisserie Spit Rod Basket but it has the dimensions of 13.9"X 7.48" X 2.2", length with 2 holders, coming up to a total of 16.22".

Convenience-wise, it has the easy squeeze adjustment tabs allow for tool-less adjustment during preparation, during the cooking process, and when unloading the basket. When cleaning, it can be done with a dishwasher but it can be best done by letting it soak in water overnight and everything will spray write-off without scrubbing.
