    I dont know why, I certainly wasnt very good this year. But anyway, Id love other rotiserrie-users' favorite things to fix in them, and what kind of seasonings you use. Im sure thats the trick to making great stuff in this thing. When I pulled it out of the box, I thought Id never figure it out, but after watching the DVD that came with it...what a great idea!!....I think I can manage it. Any favorites out there?

    I have a George Forman one. I LOVE it. I just stick a whole bird in it (young of course). I just season it with salt, pepper and onion powder. The skin is to die for. Have fun with it.

    I have a Farberware Openhearth Rotiserrie that's about 30 years old and it still works great. My favorite is pork tenderloin, sprayed lightly with olive oil then liberally covered with lemon pepper and Johnny's seasoning salt.

    When I started doing my own meat birds, I bought a rotiserrie to do some whole birds. I put the bird in the grill and fired it up. Everything worked fine for awhile, until I looked out and my grill was on fire. I needed to use the fire extinguisher it was so big. The bird was trashed, and so was the rotiserrie. I don't know if the extra fat on my home grown bird caused the fire or what, but it was not pleasant.

    Well, I fired up the rotiserie today. I didnt want a big mess in case I messed up, so I did 2 chicken breasts in the basket provided. OMG.....it was fabulous. The only thing I did wrong was that it said for chicken parts to cook for 45 minutes, and I bumped that up to an hour because I was afraid it wouldnt be done enough...it looked very juicy after 45 mins. Next time Ill do it just 45 mins. I can't wait to try all kinds of things now. And I dont know whats more fun to watch, the rotisserie turning, or the hatcher on the table next to it.

    As you see, it doesnt take much to entertain me.
