Too nasty to grill outside...
Cold outside, with freezing rain. I will be out in it tomorrow at work, so I figured I would grill inside and stay warm today!
I brought out a rotisserie that has been collecting dust in the basement. With an electric heating element, this piece will grill a large roast or bird of any kind. They were very popular in the 60's, but I doubt you could buy one now.
On the grill is 5# loin end pork rib roast. Rubbed with garlic, pepper, thyme and salt, a lite injection of Chiavetta's sauce inside finishes the seasoning.
Garlic mashed potatoes and baby sweet peas complete the meal, Dutch apple pie for dessert.
Monday may suck, but tonight will be sweet!Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.

Sounds wonderful. My grandma has a rotisserie just like that and awears by it.
Am I the only one that seems to do alot more grilling as the weather starts to turn. Not in the freezing rain, but snow never seems to be a problem. It could be that as it gets colder our bussiness slows down a little and I start getting home at a decent hour and feel like cooking. Who knows. Maybe I'm a weirdo, but i grill 2-3 times a week in the winter versus 2-3 times a month in the summer.

I envy your back yard...it looks like your in the country..
Your loin end pork rib roast is a cut that I have not seen around here...I am definitely going to order one...we have had variations of that cut, but not butchered like that....It looks like a prime rib.It's Time To Be Nice To People

Makes me water at the mouth looking at that rib roast, cold as heck here but I will BBQ all winter outside as long as the propane dont freeze up. We should be hitting the minus 40° soon enough.LOL

Thanks all for the kind comments!
Key- That's the front yard... much more behind the house and barn. It's great until you have to cut the grass. The roast is also called a blade roast. It's the end of the rib section near the front quarter. One side is a rib section, the other end has a flat bone in it. This makes it a little tougher to cut, but the meat is very tender and moist.Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.

I'd use one of those in a hotel, but in my home...... that looks like a meter spinner to me!My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

We have a Jen Aire range with a indoor grille. We have the rotisserie with it also.
The range itself is pretty beat so I am getting the War Dept a new gas stove that she has been wanting. The problem is that we are commited to a 30" stove. I looked all over for a gas 30" range with a rotisserie. No gots. But I am thinking that I can keep the rotisserie from the old electric stove and rig up something.
This summer I just got a VT casting BBQ range with rotisserie. So the only time I'd have a problem is when it is real cold out. The new gas stove does have a built in griddle with I MUST have.ESSAYONS

Just take a surplus modulating motor and some residential furnace or boiler burner tubes and everyone can make their own rotisserie. You could also make an electric one by gutting an electric toaster oven. Nobody has tried that yet?
