Heat source can be wood or solid fuel beads and is intended only as a guide.
Any product cooked on a wood fire is subject to:
Convected heat - this is heat that is rising directly off and above the heat source containing smoke, burnt gases, flame and high amounts of heat.
Radiant heat - produced from the coals, this heat is transferred through the air producing a sterile clean heat but not transferring any flavours to the product. The ideal requirements for spit roasting are good radiant heat, small amounts of flavour enhancing smoke and a simple formula of 70% radiant heat, 30% convected heat.
Therefore the ideal location for the spit bar is slightly off to one side of the heat source gaining predominantly clean radiant heat and picking up small sections of smoke producing a perfect flavoured golden roast meat or vegetable.
Use only dry cured natural cut timber where possible, wet or green wood will give poor radiant heat and undesirable partially burnt gases and very strong smoke which can destroy the flavour of your product when spit roasting.
Each type of wood produces varying degrees of smoke strength, pine will give a lighter flavour and our NZ favourite, Manuka or Kanuka will give a stronger flavour.
Experiment with differing woods. Hardwoods will burn longer and hotter, but best results will always be achieved with good dry wood.
Made from coal, these are convenient where an open type fire is not applicable or wood is not available. Producing a clean radiant heat, try placing small amounts of dry sticks or wood occasionally off to one side to burn with the beads, this again will enhance your product flavour. This is the fuel to use in our Firetray.
Again convenient where solid fuel is not available. If possible place a small tin of sawdust suitably located in the oven, the idea is to gain enough heat for the sawdust to smoulder but not turn to flame and burn; you should be left with a slightly burnt ash in the tin. We have BBQ Adaptors (horizontal & vertical) available in our store to support the Auspit Spit System.
The Auspit Outdoor Rotisserie Grill System can be used at home, on Hunting and Fishing trips, Camping, and in areas where an open or ground fire is not practical.
