Rotisserie cooking is one of the healthiest ways to cook meat. What results from rotisserie cooking is often juicy, and very tender, meat packed with all of the flavors that you infused into the meat before cooking it.

If you’re health conscientious, you’ll be happy to know that rotisseries require little to no oil at all and in-fact the rotisserie cooking method actually cooks away unwanted fats. Everyone loves to eat but at the same time most of us want to stay healthy; rotisserie cooking allows you to cook great tasting meals without feeling guilty.

How does a rotisserie work?

Barbecue rotisseries work by distributing heat more evenly than regular ovens and they cook the meat more slowly. Some rotisserie models will rotate the meat automatically while with other models the cook will have to turn the meat by hand. The purpose of rotating the meat during the cooking process is to help the meat cook more evenly resulting in a moister, more flavorful meal.

Rotisserie cooking differs from other methods of cooking like frying or stewing because the slow roasting done in a rotisserie retains more of the meats moisture and natural flavors and as a result you will not need to use seasoning as much. However, if you are in the mood for a more unique flavor you can always use your favorite spice rub or BBQ sauce.

Before you go out and buy a new rotisserie, however, be sure to check the owners manual of your kitchen oven because if you live in a newer home you may be surprised to find out that some newer ovens are already equipped with rotisserie attachments. If that is the case all you will need to do is purchase the necessary rotisserie accessories. Ovens with rotisserie attachments have a motor that handles the turning, so the meat will turn out perfectly without overcooking.

Outdoor grilling is an established part of American life, but if you live in an apartment or you just feel like cooking in, then why not get a large slab of ribs and cook it using your new counter-top rotisserie for a change? The main difference between oven roasting and rotisserie cooking are the attachments in in a rotisserie called “spits.” Spits are the steel forks you hang your meat on and if you plan on roasting large pieces of meat over a long period of time “spits” allow for more even cooking yielding a more flavorful meal.

The holiday season is when you will most appreciate the ability to cook large joints of meat to satisfy the hungry crowd. With several holidays on the calendar, delicious roasted meat will make mealtime easier to plan and prepare for, while serving up a huge prime rib will delight family and friends with the quality and flavor.

It makes perfect sense, especially now that barbecue rotisseries are equipped with powerful automatic motors that handles all of the movement of the spit for you. You also have a lot of options, because there are many rotisserie manufacturers in the United States that are shipping directly to households across the country.

If your family meals include barbecue one or more times weekly, consider the value of rotisseries. The expense of going to a restaurant and paying for a limited serving has no comparison to cooking all all-you-can-eat BBQ rotisserie in the convenience of your home.

If you are like most people you probably find eating out over time really is just too expensive. Restaurants know people are willing to pay extra for a well cooked barbecue meal. Why not just save your money, invest in a good brand name rotisserie oven and start preparing restaurant quality BBQ to enjoy at home any time you want?
