Even master grillers tend to leave the rotisserie parts that came with their grills to rust, but putting the motor and spit to use actually turns out to be easier than the grilling itself. There’s no adjusting the burners, flipping the meat, or worrying about achieving expert grill marks. And to make things even easier, we’ve developed three simple, step-by-step rotisserie recipes that will give you enough juicy meat to feed the whole family. Plus, each recipe comes with a built-in vegetable side dish that cooks underneath the meat while it rotates, soaking up all the flavorful drippings. That means more time paying attention to Dad and less time fussing with the grill.
