I would like to know the do and don’t?

Link, you will be setting it up for indirect cooking. I have a Weber kettle and I remove the cooking grate. Set the coals on both sides and the food will spin in the center. Set a pan under the food to catch drippings.( These can be saved for sauce) Start cooking and I figure 20 minutes per pound of food. About 45 minutes before the cook should end, I start taking reading with a instant read thermometer. Chickens are my favorite on the rotis. Marinade them, rub them down, making sure you get rub in the cavity, throw a stick of butter in the cavity and let them go. Enjoy and don't forget the pics!

You could go either way. I don't use salted butter, my colestrol (sp) is high and I'm adding my own with rubs so I have a little control.
