No burnt food because the food rotates.
No undercooked food because the food is left on longer.
The rotisserie means the food cooks in its own juices leaving the meat tender and moist, similar to the rotisserie chickens sold in supermarkets. With the lid closed, the moisture absorbs the smoke giving the food the best ever barbecue flavour in the world.
Large cover also available separately BARCOVERL.
HELP CHOOSING A BARBECUE
Charcoal or Gas? Choose charcoal for taste. Choose gas for convenience. Two-thirds of the UK prefer charcoal and call it the "real thing". Gas barbecues are becoming more popular as people want to fire up their barbecue quickly.
But isn't charcoal hard to light? Not nowadays. Simply place two charcoal lighter bags (or just one for the BarbeSkew II) in the charcoal tray, light the bag, leave the lid open and come back in 15 minutes and it's ready to use.
What is the difference between the types of lid?
1. Always feel the weight of the lid to determine the quality. A big heavy lid denotes quality whereas a flimsy wobbly lid won't last very long.
2. Porcelain Enamel vs Stainless Steel. Porcelain enamel (enamel infused with glass) is baked on at 870 degrees centigrade and makes it the toughest finish available. Do not get mixed up between porcelain enamel and high temperature paint. Only the highest quality barbecues like BarbeSkew use porcelain enamel. Lower quality barbecues tend to use the high temperature paint, and this will be reflected in their low price and their shorter life-span.
Stainless steel looks attractive, but needs an inner lining lid protection as the stainless steel tarnishes under heat. So it's a poor material to use on a barbecue, but it looks nice.
Do I need to buy a cover? In a word, yes. The high quality BarbeSkew cover will not only protect the two motors, but will also protect and extend the life of your BarbeSkew.
How long do the batteries last? Each motor takes 2 "D" cell batteries, providing enough power to turn the skewers for approximately 34 hours of barbecuing.
