If You Follow These Steps Then Nothing To Worry !
Charcoal spit roasters are most commonly used to rotisserie cook meat over charcoal. Charcoal spit roasting is a slow cooking process that self-bastes meat in its own juices to produce moist, tender, smoke flavored roast meats. Although a charcoal spit roaster is best used for cooking larger pieces of meat or poultry, nearly anything can be used if prepared properly.
Allow plenty of time for preparation and cooking. Cooking times will vary depending on the type and size of meat.
Today's Tip : If you are using charcoal for your smoker, the 100% Lump Charcoal is always preferred over the briquettes because it stays hotter while burning. But it is also more expensive than all types of briquettes.

---- SAFeTY FIRST -----
- Do not operate your spit roaster before reading and following manufacturer instructions.
- Position your spit roaster outdoors in a well ventilated area and on a level, non-flammable surface. Ensure it is located where you intend to cook as it should not be moved whilst in use.
- Never burn BBQ fuel inside homes, vehicles, tents or enclosed areas. Burning BBQ fuel inside can kill you. It gives off carbon monoxide, which has no odour.
- Do not place articles on or against your spit roaster.
- Do not store chemicals or flammable materials near the spit roaster.
- Keep children and pets at least 3 meters away from the charcoal spit roaster when in use.
- Do not leave your spit roaster unattended when in use.
- Wear heatproof gloves when preparing fuel and adjusting roaster.
--- PREPARE FUEL AND SPIT ROASTER ---
- The amount of charcoal required varies with the amount of meat you are cooking. Natural Charcoal Briquettes are available to purchase from Mitre 10 in 4kg and 10kg bags.
- Allow approximately 1 kg of charcoal for each kg of meat. Have more charcoal than required on hand, just in case you need to top up!
- Remove the cooking grill. If available, place the charcoal grate on the floor of the fire box. This will protect the floor from burning out and prolong the life of the spit roaster.
- Place approximately 2/3 of the required charcoal into the firebox and light. Fire lighters or a charcoal fire starter will assist with ignition and are available to purchase at Mitre 10.
- Do not pour flammable fuels, oils or spirits into the firebox as this could cause an explosion and result in personal injury.
- Once well lit, use a long handled tool to spread the charcoal to the same length of your prepared meat. The flame should not be directly under the meat, instead is should sit around the meat. This prevents fats from dripping onto the charcoal which can cause flare ups and burning to meat.
- Replace the cooking grill.
- Place a drip pan onto the grill to catch drips of fat from the meat.
