This doesn't effect my love of the Fill it and Grill it Basket in anyway.  The Fill it and grill it will still be the choice for tumbling Chicken Wings, Seafood and larger items.  

 

I wanted a Tumble Basket that could handle rotisserie roasting vegetables, nuts, meatballs and other small items.  I had to search far and wide to find a Tumble Basket up to the task.  

 

The Drummy was the only true Tumble Basket I could find with smaller holes.

 I've tried roasting vegetables in the Fill-It-N-Grill it Tumble Basket with limited success.  The bars have large spaces that allow a lot of veg to go up in flames after falling into the fire.  This is not ideal if you have a lot of hungry mouths to feed.  

 

I can't imagine trying to run the Fit it and Grill it Basket with Meat Balls, nuts or smaller items.  I'm hoping the Drummy will fair better for spinning difficult times that don't fit in conventional baskets.  

 

It's going to be harder to clean rhe drummy.  it's on a bar hinge and does not break dowm into sections like the Fill it and Grill it.

 

The Drummy is quite big and will require a Big Joe or XL Egg to use the Rotisserie.  The Fit and Grill it Basket literally fits inside the Drummy Tumble Basket with an inch and half to spare on each side.  The Dummy is also 2-1/2 wider in diameter.  It will be able to fit a ton of eats. 

 

I plan to test the Drummy this weekend with a almond roasting.  I'll post some feedback during a vegetable roasting over the weekend.

Have you tried the drummy with chicken wings?  Seems like you could get more in there.  Any updates on one vs the other would be cool.  Is the drummy the one to get that does it all?

 

As soon as I receive my replacement Joetisserie ring I’m planning to use the Drummy to make some honey roasted almonds.  I have to wait for a party to make some wings.   Most of family members aren’t keen on dark meat.  I have to invite a more opened minded crowd over for dinner.

 

I made seared Tuna steaks with a acid injection to lightly cook the center without drying it out.  I’m still taking tongue lashing for my Tuna steaks.   

 

I also want to try a Turkish Meatball recipe that will be a perfect fit for the Drummy’s design.  

 

I think the fill-it and grill open bar basket I have will be a better fit for chicken wings.  The Fill-it and Grill It basket’s design allows for a lot more direct heat exposure for short cooks vs the Drummy which is mostly indirect and radiant heat.  The Fill-It & Grill It is probably a better fit for chicken wing tumbles.

There will be an opportunity to take the Drummy for a spin this weekend to make a Middle Eastren fusion treat, Turkish Meat balls.

I am still undecided about these baskets.  I have not had the opportunity to use one yet.  I am still trying to decide, based on what I have seen with them, what the advantage is compared to putting the food that goes in them directly on the grill.  Maybe you can shed some light on that for me?

On cleaning. An idea. My <go to>  for hard to clean grill items:

Break your drummy down and put it in the dishwasher on a heavy soil cycle (if you have one). Hope the drummy will fit.

I run the faucet, same hot water line as the dishwasher, to ensure that the hot water is at optimum temp despite the water heat up portion of the dishwasher cycle. I.e. the manufacturers idea of hot may not be mine.

The Drummy will not breakdown.  It uses a piano hinge.  Unfortunately, It doesn’t come apart without welding it back together.

I would say the advantage is that you can put in small veggies kind of like a stir fry.  It takes too long to flip tiny veggies, they fall through the grill, and taking all that time gets the fire going too hot.  I like the idea of a bunch of hot wings, evenly cooked on all sides that I don’t have to flip.

I often grill chicken-only shish kebabs next to vegetable-only ones.  They are seasoned differently but cook at the same temperature.  Is there a way to put a partition inside so that the chicken and vegetables don't mix seasonings?

      I stumbled upon a very cool Rotiserrie basket searching online.  It's the first decent tumble basket I've seen for roasting small veg and nuts with small holes and a decent round shape to it.

      I'm seriously thinking about getting this one.
