It's just a Char-Broil Universal Rotisserie Kit, Probably and big box store you just have to figure out a place to mount the motor mount and fab the spit down to the smaller round diameter so it turns with the lid closed I lose a little smoke around the spit but not much. I have ran it about a half a dozen times with no ill effect on the gasket.

darn I think I would have a hard time fab the split.

I don't have a lathe to turn it down but I do have a bench grinder I'm thinking to mount the spit rod in a drill and grind whilst spinning the drill. 

I will let you know how it goes.

this sounds like a good idea. please post pictures or video if possible.

It will be photos I'm not one for videos I don't have the equipment... 

 

My Rotisserie kit arrived in the post today to be honest I only paid £20 for it and it shows. The quality is terrible I will have to run a tap through all of the threads just to get the supplied screws through.  I will still do the mod and will add photos for your viewing pleasure.

Unfortunately my idea for the drill and bench grinder was a epic fail the bar was made of the  worst grade steel I've ever encountered and it snapped. I have a friend who has a lathe and he was very helpful and made me a replacement pictured. It is currently raining cats and dogs here so can't show it in place.
