Kettle ID help
« on: August 12, 2014, 08:02:25 AM »
Any idea what brand kettle this is?  Although it looks like a Weber, the crease in the bowl makes me think otherwise.

By the looks of that photo, it could be Spider-Man's personal cooker! The rare "Arachno-Joe"!

Otherwise I'm thinking Sears too,  I think they had the crease.

Make your own Weber rotisserie for $30.00
You will need
1 Old Weber
1 Universal rotisserie kit, home center about $30.00
1 Thermometer for the lid about $6 at the home center. You will not know your cook temperature without this.

1. Drill 2 5/16 holes, one inch below lower kettle rim, in the center of the kettle parallel to the wheels.
2. Run spit rod through holes, mount motor bracket on left side. Bracket will have to be shimmed out do to curvature of kettle.
    Do not attach bracket without shims for this will add heat transfer to the bracket and motor.
3. I sawed off the non-point end of the skewer rod so only a few inches protrude when in use.

Rotated this Turkey on New Years day. Five hours on the grill, one hour in the oven due to low light conditions outside. This is the best Turkey I have ever had, in one word, spectacular! Twenty one pounds of gastric delite.

With the Turkey on spite, load squire from right to left. First into the right hole, then back into the left hole, and then into the motor. Move bushing to the right to keep the squire from walking out of the motor.

Questions?










I'm about to this very similarily...thanks for the inspiration.  Question before I drill, did you find the turkey or chicken you do is to close to the coals compared to the roti ring attachment?  I saw you had foil over the coals.  Did you use a lower temp then someone would with a roti ring?

@Winz
Those Kettles were likely made by Weber to sell  At sears or wards at a lower price.
No frills grills. Not to be confused with a Happy Cooker. I don't think those discount grills had internal pans like a HC.
They had plain vents with no markings.  If I am correct, the indent was to hold the grate. They had no tabs.
