To properly grill a turkey using a rotisserie the unit must be positioned so the heat source is never directly under the bird. The indirect heat will allow the interior portions of the meat to cook thoroughly before the exterior becomes overdone. Preheating must be done before rotisserie grilling your turkey. A 12 to 14 pound bird is the maximum weight that can be accommodated on a standard rotisserie unit. The turkey must be attached securely to the spit assembly making sure it does not slip on the spit as the rotisserie rotates. The turkey must be trussed properly so the wing and legs don't get caught as it turns. The turkey must be balanced on the rotisserie unit for if not it will not turn and burn out the motor. A turkey intended for rotisserie grilling can not be bread stuffed. The slower cooking time may not kill harmful bacteria as rapidly as with oven roasting. Check for doneness with a meat thermometer before removing the turkey from the heat source.
