Food Poisoning Hazard
Do not let food sit for more than
one hour before or after cooking.
Doing so can result in food
poisoning or sickness.
(Rotisserie available on some models)
Rotisserie cooking rotates food in front
of an infrared burner, creating an intense
heat for searing the outside and sealing
in natural juices.
• The infrared burner reaches cooking
temperatures in about one minute. Do
not preheat when using the rotisserie.
• Select tender meat and poultry.
Allow at least 1 inch space between
infrared burner and the food.
• Rotisserie can be used in combination
with the smoker and/or the grill.
• Use a portable meat thermometer to check internal doneness of the item.
• Turn off rotisserie burner when meat thermometer reads 5°F lower than desired
internal temperature. Continue rotating, hood closed, for 10 minutes before carving.
• Timing is affected by weather conditions such as wind and outside temperature.
• To make cleanup easier, place a pan
under the food to catch drippings.
• The cover can be opened or closed,
but when using the rotisserie with the
smoker the cover should be closed.
• Add barbecue sauce or glaze only
during the last 10 minutes of cooking
to prevent sauce from burning.
