The Rotisserie Grilling Cookbook
While you can grill a burger or steak without a cookbook, rotisserie grilling is tricky. With
everyday grilling, most people cook things with roughly even thickness and they can tell when
the meats are done just by looking at them. Try something bigger, like a leg of lamb, a whole
turkey, or a full pork shoulder, and they have a problem. Most grills will completely char the
outside long before the inside is cooked to a safe temperature. The solution, of course, is a
rotisserie. The Rotisserie Grilling Cookbook shows how to set up, maintain, use and troubleshoot
a rotisserie spit. It includes 105 recipes will expand your outdoor cooking repertoire,
including dry-brined Thanksgiving turkey, whole country ham for other holidays, whole chicken,
duck, game hens, and big cuts like beef ribeye roast or leg of lamb. Beyond the meat recipes
that are the core of the book, it includes rubs, glazes, and mops that are specifically crafted
for long, slow cooking over a rotisserie, and even some ideas, like a spit-roasted whole pineapple,
from beyond the world of poultry and meats.

About.com
Founded in 1997 as a human powered alternative to Yahoo, About.com grew into one of the
largest content sites on the internet. As the sole author of all Barbecue & Grilling
related content, this section of About.com grew to over 5,000 individual documents and a
word count that amounted to the equivalent of more than 8 volumes of product reviews,
recipes, and how-to articles. Ultimately, the Barbecue & Grilling section of
About.com generated more than 80,000,000 annual pageviews and was read by a global
audience in the tens of millions. Since the internet is an ever evolving platform,
About.com began a process of verticalization in 2016 and ultimately ended as a single
