I think this is a good score

Haven't gone through it yet, but looks like a full rotisserie kit, a Ribolator, and 2 new char baskets. Rotisserie looks to have been used one or twice at the most. Ribolator and char baskets look untouched.

By my math that's nearly $350 retail with taxes for $30. Wow. I'm half expecting the motor to not work or something. It was a porch pickup and I didn't want to waste any time before they rethought it. Lol

So, earlier today after picking this up I was running some other errands. In between stops I decided to quickly plug the rotisserie motor into my jump starter inverter in my trunk just to see if the motor works. Even if the motor is kaput, it's still a great deal for what I got. Plug it in, and nothing. Hmmmmm. So, I told myself I would try it at home to make sure.

Had some friends over for dinner and a movie tonight so now that everyone is gone and wife and dogs are in bed, it's time to check this out. I plugged it all in and still nothing. Ugh. So, I did a google search. No real good answers except that the motor just might be broken. One of the forum posts I found someone suggested "hitting it on the side." So, as I'm standing there staring at this motor not working I thought to myself, why not? Hit the side and sure as **** the beast fires up and starts moving. lol So, I'm in business.

I can't wait to fire up this ribolator. Ready to do 4 racks of babybacks on the SS Performer. The timing is perfect as I love making ribs, but just traded out my 22 WSM for a 14 WSM. So, now I can do them on the ribolator. I will properly document with pics and post when I fire it up.

Ribolator = pain in the neck to clean. Be sure to give it a
good coating of cooking spray before use to make life
easier. Great score.

I know the trays are diswasher safe. Was going to put them in the dishwasher after my first use to see what they look like when they come out.
