I'm throwing my annual Daytona 500 party Sunday and I grabbed 5 racks of baby backs at $2.68/lb. Boneless ribeye is on sale for $7.98/lb, so I'm planning on trying out the new rotisserie stand I got for Christmas over an easy cinder block pit I'm going to set up with a 7-8 lb rib roast. Never rotisserie'd anything before, so this could be a disaster. A few questions for each... There will be a lot happening at once, so I'd like to get more done during the prep than during and after the cooks. I'm wondering if cutting the ribs into sections--or even individually as this article suggests https://www.smoking-meat.com/august-13-2015-pre-slicing-ribs-before-smoking-them--has been a success for anyone. My thoughts are smoke them for about 2 hours, put them all in an aluminum pan or two with some juice/sauce and rub covered for another 2, then take the top off the pans to finish them off for a bit. After that I can just set the pans out and let people have at it. This works beautifully with beef ribs, but I've never tried it with pork. It sure would save me time and aluminum foil during the cook. It will also keep anyone from grabbing too many and throwing meat away. As far as the prime rib on the rotisserie, I'm planning on lighting a good base of coals topped with hickory logs I have and letting that dwindle down to a hot heap of coals. Should I offset the roast a little with a pan underneath with some water in it to use the juices? If so, I may be able to use our fire pit. I think this will be a 5+ hour process, so I'm sure I'll have to add coals. Since it'll be boneless, do I need to tie it with string or wire, or will the forks suffice? This is going to be an experiment for sure, so I'm glad I'll have the baby back-ups. Any open flame rotisserie experts out there? As always, thanks for the help!
