Every year my husband gets me a gadget, cookbook or appliance for Christmas that I would otherwise never buy for myself. Usually it's because it's too expensive or just plain silly. It all started with Ginsu Knife commercials..and then when I was up late at night with my newborn, 24 years ago, I had no idea of the world of late night infomercials. I Had to have this new thing called an electric sandwich maker. I was both fascinated and repelled at the thought and sight of that lady making a spaghetti sandwich.
So this year, the Hubs gave me a Ronco Rotisserie. I've made whole chicken, chicken legs and breasts. So far everything has turned out very well. I have a rack of spare ribs in the freezer that I'd like to try, but I'm unsure as to how long they would take in the oven. Any recipe I've seen calls for baby back ribs. My husbands likes his ribs very tender and I'm worried they wouldn't have enough roasting time in the rotisserie oven. I put an oven thermometer in there and it heated up to 200 degrees. The oven has a timer, but no temperature setting. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas on this? Has anyone ever made spareribs in a rotisserie oven? Thanks for your input!
