3 Chickens on a 26 roti?
« on: May 10, 2017, 05:13:57 PM »
Was wondering if anyone has ever seen or actually rotied 3 chickens on a 26? 

I have never even cooked a chicken on my rotisserie.  I've done beef roast, turkeys, pork loins, pork shoulders, ribs and a bunch of stuff  on the ribolator but never a single chicken. 

I know I can do 2 chickens on a 22 easy but was thinking I could fit 3 on the 26?  Let me know what you guys think. Here's a picture in action to give the idea of size.  23lb turkey and a turkey breast.

I use a Weber 9891 cradle on my 26'r and could squeeze 3 small birds in the 3.5-4lb range.

These were over 5lbs. each

Take a look at the Octoforks, they are more versatile than the 2 prong spit forks.

Normally the chickens we get are around 2-2.5lbs. I can fit 2 easy on the 22 with room left over. I don't see an issue with getting three on a 26'er. At least not my size chickens.

I buy the ones with the extra hormones and what not. 6.5 + lbs. Kroger had them for .69/lb so why not. I think you'd be fine on the 26er
