Not everyone is aware of the amazing benefits that a rotisserie will do for barbecues. Most of you buy barbecue grills and roasters but forget to add a rotisserie kit in your carts. And that’s what we want to talk about today. Surely, you won’t only be cooking whole pigs with your La Caja China, right? Our rotisserie may be small but it does provide a lot of convenience to your barbecue cooking and also deliver amazingly delicious roasts, too. So let’s start by getting to know the rotisserie a little bit more.
What is a rotisserie?
A rotisserie is a food preparation style that involves sticking the meat in a long solid rod and cooking it over fire, usually in campfire, fireplace or oven. Skewering rotates the meat in a consistent pace, thus ensuring that it cooks evenly and allowing it to self-baste. This cooking method has long been used in households, even dating back to the medieval times. There are two types of rotisserie: horizontal and vertical. You’ll see the horizontal type being used in open broilers or grills to roast chicken or meat. The vertical rotisserie on the other hand is commonly used in roasting large pieces of beef for shawarmas and kebabs.
What are the advantages of using a rotisserie?
Using a rotisserie is great for cooking a lot of food at the same time. While you’re busy waiting for your whole suckling pig to cook inside your La Caja China roasting box, you can set up the rotisserie on top of the grill and cook your chicken. And oh, you can also use our basket rotisserie so that you can barbecue smaller food items such as sausages, pork chops, corns, bell peppers and what-nots. It will save you a lot of time and energy, too.
Another advantage of using a rotisserie is that it allows food to self-baste. Meaning, the food is periodically coating itself with its own juice. No marinade or juice is wasted at all because as the food rotates, it reabsorbs the juices that come out of it. Of course, you might expect some drips but that will be easy to scoop out and re-use for basting again.
