How do you keep it from melting?

I'd be pissed off if it melted into the camp fire....

Might be fun to play with if you got one from a yard sale for half a buck.

Seems kind of gimmicky to me. How about a battery that gets too hot?

Seems like a squirrel powered one would work. When the squirrel was done, you could eat him too. Not sure how to season though [smilie=sorry.gif]

If I bought one of those I think I would invest in some stainless steel as a heat shield to protect the motor section from cooking itself. and maybe a small solar powered fan to blow on it all the time, (during daylight hours, with a battery back up for the evenings and nights).

All you need is a disposable pan with a hole in it for the shaft to go through and it would get hot at all.

That is also way too big of a fire for a yardbird that close. Nice bed of coals would work much mo betta. I just put a hand crank on that spit rod. Think thats how they done it back in da good old days.

I see guys roasting pigeons on the end of a stick over 50 gallon barrel fires in South Philly. I guess they spin the stick between sips of Thunderbird.

Sounds like a good plan. As far as I can tell they is just king sized doves. I have seen bumper stickers which say..Keep your City clean..Eat Piegons. The bumper stickers is real popular amongst the live piegon contest shooters. No Puff I am way too young to even remember the good old days let alone to have participated in the various rituals.

My Fiance feeds the birds in our backyard. I like to wait until there are about a dozen or so hanging out on the ground feeding and then I let out Libby (our Doberman Pinscher). She has never caught one... yet.

Ya know this is odd but I watched a show on TV yesterday called "Campfire Cooking." Guess it was on the Food Channel or another one similar (we just got a bunch of new channels when we switched over to satellite TV)..at any rate the old Cowboy helping with the cooking had a complete hand operated Rotess setup. He cooked three chickens on it over a nice bed of coals and give the spit rod a 1/4 turn each 15 mins. That should work.
