I'm guessing that it would fall apart as it gets done. However, it might work in a spit basket. ??

Is there such a thing? The more I use my rotiss the more I like it. A basket for the rotiss would open up some interesting possibilities.

Yep! I bought one from Lowes, if memory serves. CharBroil brand.

Haven't used it yet. I bought the CB spit and returned it. Kept the basket to use on the CG rotis that I ordered instead.

BTW, these folks also have several other accessories for the rotis.

Hope this helps.

I tried a flat basket on slab of boneless salmon fillet, and I was not happy at the results. The heavy chrome center bar squish-cooked a heavy dent down the centerline of the meat . :evil: It even overcooked that area because the increased heat transfer of the heavier bar. :evil: This hard impression made the salmon look sooo UGLY! :evil: I cannot imagine a whole fish with its thickest point under that center bar would fare much better, IMHO.

I think the better idea is shown in the photo above, using only fish steaks...or perhaps dispensing with the basket altogther for fillets and larger fish steaks, and using the hot/clean/oiled grill method Steve R. speaks of so often. This also is considering the extra time needed to clean the rotisserie basket after all is said and done.

If I can ever get some photos posted, I will post a pic of this turner I got from my pops that is OLD...carbon steel, 3" wide, 1 foot long (not including handle) and is beautifully THIN and rather flexible. It works great for flipping things like fillets, fish steaks, and two burgers at a time! :)

Thinking back, I'm sure that I found it a Lowes. If you have one nearby, you may want to take a hands on look at it.

Cooking on a Rotiss is a fun thing to do. The more I think about it there is very little you couldn't do. Espescially with the right attachment. Check out Grill Lover's they have some really neat ones.
But as far as recipes go, just take your favorite ones and make them spin. It doesn't need to be "made for a rotiss."

Mako is my favorite of all the sharks.. If you're a fan of shark, have you ever tried Blue Marlin ?? It's a nice fish in the shark/swordfish texture family. The raw meat is BRIGHT pink ..

No Doubt about the E-Z Que Guys. I bought one a long time ago off the recommendations from users off the VIrtual Weber Bullet Board. And I could not be happier with my purchase. I have not gone wrong with one thing yet with it. I have the one for my Weber Kettle and it is absoluetly amazing way to cook.

I haven't had it for quite a while but I have had Blue Marlin once, it was given to me by a friend. I don't know if I can find it in a fish market though.

    JFM,
    Longmill is correct in her memory. I bought the same basket at Lowes. Don't know if there are any in Mass? I checked the BBQ Galore website. They also have several rotiss accessories including the basket............Argon

    Thanks for the info. Here in Mass. Home Depots are everywhere, but Lowes are few and far between. The nearest one is about 40 minutes from where I live. Next time I head out in that direction I'll make some time to visit Lowes Never been to one, so it's about time anyways.

    JFM,
    I rechecked the BBQ Galore site. Their version available over the internet is about $20 and is non stick. Also, their store locator indicates they have a store in next door to you in Connecticut ......................Argon
