Re: spit

Hey Reggie welcome. Dearly deceased DIL go up to Missouri each year to a big hawg cooking contest around the Lake of the Ozarks. His Uncle had a marina up there. At any rate they make dedicated hawg cookers out of two split barrells tacked end to end and the rotess which spans the space is some kinda car axle or maybe a sub assembly thereof. Had a electric motor and chain drive with gears on one end to make it spin. To cook you just throw some charcoal in the bottom of the barrells and flippy the switch. Try Googling around for a Lake of the Ozarks hawg cooking apparatus from Missouri.

Re: spit

You betcha sir hope you find it. Know it aint all that exotic of a part I dont think. Know when the DIL came back from up there he had one built just like the ones he saw. Don't think he ever got around to lighting a fire in it.
