  • wood fired spit roaster

    I've been asked assist in puting together a kit oven by a guy who also wants a wood fired spit roaster. Anyone had some experience ? I was thinking along the lines of a fire brick pit (a few holes in the side to allow air in) over vermicrete, with a s'steel lid and inside an electric powered spit. Help !
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

    You could take a Forno Bravo Fireplace Kit and bore a hole in each side and mount the motor on one side add a grate to hold a tray if you need one . Bingo an instant Wood Fired roaster and a cozy Fireplace when your not interested in Roasting.

        CK, good to hear from you!

        I have a couple of windsheild wiper motors that may just do the trick. I love the ideas one can find here.

          Make sure you add some heat shielding, I made one from a wiper motor, and the casing ended up glowing red!!!
