I'm thinking that the spit method has become more attractive to me now largely due to the presentation and mystique. There is something about 100 people hanging around watching the pig slowly rotate on the spit that just adds to the anticipation of the meal.
The motor I've found has 600in/lbs of torque which is double the beefiest spit setup I could find for sale (SpitJack) and if I go with some external gearing to slow it down a bit then I'm thinking it should be OK. (but what do I really know until I try it)
Is a supplemental wheel or handle for manually turning the spit important?
Some spits ride on wheels or ball bearings, I think this could be pretty easily incorporated...do you think it's worth doing?
I'm targeting an inaugeral pig for August 20th....it's about time to get to work.
