    Looking to buy a rotisserie to put over my S&S firepit. I’m leaning toward a Charotis Model TSC1.
    Anyone out there do this type of cooking and what do you use?
    Thanks

    All I have is the rotisserie for my Weber charcoal and I love it.

    My advice is...find one you like and buy it. Rotisserie is one of those things that, after you do it, you wonder why you don't do it more often

    But i know nothing about over firepits. Gonna check the one you're asking about.

    I think this is mine. Onegrill. I don't use it much, but it's well made, and the height is easily adjusted. The posts are designed to be hammered into the ground, but I installed a pipe into my fire pit that can hold the post. The end with the motor I keep out of the fire/heat. Part of my problem was that I didn't realize I was ordering the shorter version, so be careful.
    Once did a 20# turkey on it, no problem. My other unit, (Charbroil possibly), would have flexed under that much weight.

    These look well made as well. Titan is another one I’m looking at, they a few dollars cheaper.
