Hey Ben. Check out my web site and see if that is the kind of smoker you need or want. If it is, let me know and I will send you what I have in drawings.

Let me check my Granger catalog. I would go with a shaded pole DC gear motor with a reostat. That way you could control the speed with out a whole bunch of pullys gears Chain and sprockets exc. I'll get back to you.

The majority of bbq pits built by folks over on the BBQ Forum, have a speed of 3/4 to 1 rpm. Don't know if this helps you at all but in searching there yesterday that seemed to be the speed most felt was the best for your type of pit.

Sorry, can't help you with the size motor it will take to move 200lbs, 1rpm. You've got my entire knowledge bank of off set rotisserie pits right here.
