    Rotisserie...for the grill, or for the smoker?

    Hi Folks,

    I've been considering a rotisserie. I have an 18" WSM, and a 22" Kettle...which makes more sense for the rotisserie? (also a jumbo joe, but I can't imagine hauling the rotisserie around, so portability isn't a concern....unless it should be?)

    Thanks ahead for your thoughts!

    IMO, although I use both a "gas" grill and a WSM, I only have a rotisserie for the grill. There is no direct flame when smoking so I honestly can't see a need.
    So many recipes, so little time

    I think the kettle is the best bet

    I have one for my Kettle and I am super happy with it being on there and not on smoker. Best add-on for the kettle so far.

    Yeah years ago (back in the 70's) I bought a large kettle and the rotisserie ring/kit for it. Have to say that was da' bomb

    Both...
    You could use the 18" without the middle section and then you have the direct heat
    I got an 18" rotisserie (for my kettle) and it easily holds 2 small chickens. But since mine is not a deep kettle, I have to be careful with loading the charcoal

    I suppose it's up to you, what do you want to cook on it? And for how many people?
    I find that my 22" kettle uses too much charcoal....
