Large Custom Spit Rods

We get asked all the time for either extra long or large diameter spit rods for fire pits or cooking whole hogs. The only thing we can really recommend is finding some 304 stainless steel rod stock. Rod stock is readily available either from a local machine shop or online and can be used as is or it can be modified by a local machine shop. The simplest (and cheapest) way to go about it would be to find hardware that would fit the rod stock though.

Here are some links to the basic rod stock that can be ordered in up to 72 inch lengths and up to 1 1/2 inch widths.

You will also need to keep in mind that you may need custom made spit or meat forks and spit rod bearing of some kind if you are going this route. We sell large spit forks that will fit up to a 3/4 inch diameter rod outside of that, the largest diameter forks we have found (shown below) are 1 inch and also a 1 inch diameter bearing.

You will also need some sort of drive mechanism for the motor. Like gears a chain or belt or even a drill like this guy.

There are a lot of youtube videos with home made rotisseries to give you some ideas on how to finish your project. I hope this article helps you on your grilling mission and we would love to see your finished products.
