Kamado Joe Shawarma Spit prototype

Recommended Posts

I had to get a little creative this weekend for the  Shawarma challenge,  I wanted to cook my chicken vertically and created a shawarma/gyro vertical spit.    for about $6 or so in parts, it worked out great.


I will be posting the shawarma cook a little later today.

@In2Fish what are the parts for this?


Fairly basic easy to find stuff:

  • two pack of metal 9" pie pans from Target for $1.99
  • 3ft length 1/4" steel rod from Home Depot about $5.00 
    • used about 13-14" of the rod, and used a 1/4"-20 die to thread about 1" of the rod
  • Two stainless steel 1/4" wing nuts, and two stainless steel fender washers (the over priced HD small pre-packed bags found in the hardware isle)
    • the washers and wing nuts are used to secure the rod to the base (the pie pans)
  • one used vegetable can (label removed & cleaned) free :-) 

Assembly is easy,

  • drill a hole in the center of the pie pans and the can, 
  • if you bend the rod (see the picture),  insert the rod through the can.
  • thread a wing nut and washer on to the rod
  • line up the pie pans (pan bottom to pan bottom), and insert the rod through holes
  • Secure the rod with the second pair of nut and washer.
  • tighten the wing nuts as best as possible
  • Now cook!!

Wins on all the points. Easy to make. Parts easy to source. Can be taken apart to store. Cheap to make. The pictures show that it works just like the ones in the shops. The only thing missing is rotation and with a circular Kamado this is not required.
