    Pyrrhic victory

    In the course of conquering 2 pork ribeye roasts today, my Weber rotisserie motor was lost.

    The roasts were delicious but now I need a new spinner...any recommendations? The motor was given to me some years ago and I did open it up and grease it at the time, but I also noticed that it had plastic gears and would someday give up the ghost. Now that that day is here I'd like to get a quality unit that will fit the Weber rotisserie, last a good 20 years or so, and not have soy sauce and eggrolls as part of the manufacturing process. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Some pretty good soy sauce comes from Wisconsin!

    I don't know if the motor would work with everything else you have, but these are probably the best.

    Dustin, I fear there are items from the pacific rim on that site which may offend the OP.
    I’ve been considering one of the DC models for lighter spinning projects though, sometimes it would just be quicker to grab the battery pack model and get a Peruvian chicken going!

    Thanks, Dustin.

    No, I haven't ignored this thread but shortly after I started it the original motor started working again and worked just fine...until tonight. I took the motor apart and found that that a collar had broken loose and its gear could now float, which led to intermittent failure.

    OneGrill's $50 motor doesn't particularly impress me but the $150 model has an all-metal drivetrain, and while I realize that description means I'm likely to get pot metal gears instead of ones cut from steel it still sounds better. However, the motor weighs in at twice the weight (6 lbs. vs. 3) of a standard motor, so would counterbalancing be necessary?

    Tim, *all* of your soy sauce should come from Wisconsin. I have deep family ties to Walworth and Kikkoman is all we use.
