The RHS steel frame is smooth so there is no damage to the oven floor.

I must warn you that the rod with food on is extremely hot even with gloves on, I would hate to have to juggle the rod plus food on and off a holding devise at the back of the oven.

Brickie - thanks for the terrific pics of the oven spit on your website!

I am envious of the access you have to a supplier of heavy duty spit parts. After looking at their website, I searched for something similar in the USA. So far, I have come up empty handed. It appears that everything available over here is made for residential gas grills - too short, probably too flimsy, and underpowered.

If anyone in the states knows of a source for heavy duty rotisserie parts, please post!

That may be an option. I hate to think what the freight charge will be to ship a solid stainless steel bar 5.5 feet by 1 inch diameter from upside-down to the far side of upside-up. But even with freight it would probably be cheaper than this. The spit and motor alone are more than USD 525!

I bought the Stainless rod from a local supplier, I shaped the point with a grinder and drilled the hole.

Why not contact your local marine store as a ski boat prop shaft is the same and freely available. I even have a spare one just laying around the garage somewhere.

Does it come with a coffee roasting attachment? I just wired two half round metal sieves together and could use that to rotate the basket. would make a great coffee roaster too.

I love the concept, but the weight and bulkiness are a major factor. I like the concept of having a detachable spit that you could pull out independent of all the other stuff. If you could, as suggested, have a good size V in the back of the oven and set the spit on that and another rest at the door opening. even just a modified door with a hole. The motor plugs into the handle of the spit with the same universal joint. You could maybe have a small dolly to hold the far end of the spit to facilitate dragging it out of the oven HOT for heavy items. A pan can always be slid underneath. That whole frame is going to be hot, I would prefer to handle just the spit rather than the whole frame. You definitely need two people for this operation.

Great idea, have been wondering how I can do a roisterer in the oven. Thanks for the share.

There is considerable information and detail for coffee roasting and baskets here:

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/25/r...html#post57197 (roasting green coffee beans)

I haven't personally done any but green beans are quite hard to get and a lot more expensive than freshly roasted beans from the multitude available here in Adelaide.

Thanks for the link Neill. Coffee grows on our property and am trying to exploit it. We got about 40 kilos this year of coffee cherries and now my wife wants me to roast them...
