Camp cooking with a rotisserie.
Just because you are camping does not mean that you can’t enjoy delicious food while on the move. Another one of our favorite pieces of cooking equipment is our easy to pack and set up rotisserie. This piece of kit has provided us with some very tasty meals over the years.So what is it? a rotisserie basically is a style of roasting where meat is slowly cooked on a battery operated rotating motor. This method of cooking has been used for centuries with the name first emerging in France where it first appeared in Paris shops around 1450. This method of cooking ensures that the meat or joint of choice is cooked evenly. When using a rotisserie you should always place the meat on the middle of the rotisserie skewer and fasten as firmly as you can. If you are cooking chicken or some type of bird remember to secure the wings and legs in as tightly as possible. If parts of the meat are loose to flop around as it turns this can affect the speed of the rotisserie, you can also burn the meat if it is not balanced correctly on the rod, keeping you meat balanced on the skewer will provide perfect results. As you are sitting around the fire enjoying a cold beverage there is nothing quite like waiting for your meal to cook on the rotisserie while you marinate the meat as it cooks slowly over the fire. We have cooked, lamb, beef, chicken, bacon you name it on our rotisserie and I have to say the meat always tastes superb.
