Believe it or not there's a company in Oz that imports a grill made in Greece that has an ingenious rotating mechanism both for long and shorter spits.

Not sure if it's worth buying or not as I seldom cook stuff on a spit, but it's definitely worth a look.

I will find the address and post it here or in the relevant part of the forum

I love using the spit, a 2.2Kg brined chicken, 8 big chunks of charcoal, 2hrs time, and hey presto fall apart chicken dinner for 2 and enough left over for quite a few sangers.

I brought it through a Greek company I worked for, Its  a Cypriot charcoal spit that they import. And yes, theres something hypnotic that draws men and beer together!. I never "carve as you go" I always rest my meat properly before carving. BUT......always put a "NibbleStick on so the main event can do its thing. I get killer meat ends from work, bacon, ham, beef, chicken, whatever and just heat it up with a mandatory beer!!  ;D

Got one of these & love it.
What are the large disc's in the first photo?  Assume they are to push the meat together - just haven't seen them before.
Need to work on using the skewer rotisserie - I do some different skewers just never seem to remember this attachment at the time...

Cheers

ha ha, yeah Iv had it for 4-5 years and I reckon 6 months ago I gave the skewers a go, worked great. Made up a heap of diced meat and veg and we all sat around making our own skewers. The discs are for yiros/souvlaki meat, I do chicken and lamb and with a secret blend of spices marinated over night and thread them on and away you go!

So - went on a hunt yesterday for some disc's - found the place I bought it from4 years ago - wow time flies.
Cyprus Grills - main name is "The BBQ Store".  Found out they have a physical shop in Sydney & picked up some accessories.
Thought you might be interested
a. Charcoal tray - metal tray insert into the base.  Mine is a bit rusty & this should extend the life span
b. Canvas Cover - again another attempt to extend the life
c. Mini 4 prong Forks - for small chunks of meat
d. Double sided & Single sided 2 Prong forks - also for small bits of meat
e. Disc's - coming soon arrive in a couple of weeks
f. Triple skewer for - also in a couple of weeks.  I've found some skewer meats rotate around the skewer - hope this stops that

Cheers

nice, first thing I did was get hold of a piece of sheet stainless steel for the bottom of mine to help prolong its life. Yeah you can get an amazing array of accessories, The place I go in Adelaide Is Gaganis Bros, they have all that and Iv even seen adjustable counter weights to balance your spit rods  ;)

G'day
Don't have a charcoal rotti but have one fitted to a Weber Q200. Gives you a lovely roast the drips on the hot grill gives you s great flavour.
Favourite accessory would be the basket by far. Allows you to cook other things than large pieces of meat. Favourite is chicken pieces and veg. As long as they are roughly the same size your good!

G'day
It's gas but what the heck you can cheat.
This is my banksia nut burner plate above the gas burner but under the grill bars.
Works on lower temps than a box or aluminium packet on the grill bar.
