That is a good point.
We have a simple A frame made from 2 x 4s joined at the top with door hinges. It is paneled with galvanized steel roof panels and the bottom of the A is secured with a cross brace on each end. When erected over the spit it makes a nice tent to reflect the heat and trap smoke.
Obviously you need some sort of bushing or bearing to support the spit rod. I think rollers are probably the easiest to engineer. If you use a bearing that requires grease, check it often to make sure it doesn't go dry, as the heat from the rod could cause the bearing grease to liquify and spin out.
