Thanks Jesse and Marty.
I like the idea of the 2x4 resting on the handle idea. Simple and effective.Will have to get a length long enough!
The other end of the rotisserie is resting on the side table. I had to make it up as the mount was part of the original BBQ.just used two angle brackets screwed in facing each other.
Go for it-I was inspired by joetisserie but didn't like the idea of drilling into the Joe.would be keen to see a photo of your finished product!
Fire bricks could work but since their outside is quite rough, would they accelerate the deterioration of the seal?
Making a form and casting would result in a more professional finish. It's not something I have done before. Is it complicated?
I like the idea of the metal to insulate. Wonder about the thickness required - malleability vs insulation.would have to be thick enough so the wood didn't bake.
