You should also look at your rotisserie motor to be sure it has a square drive. A hex rod will work in a square drive but a square rod will not work in a hex drive. The rod should also fit into your motor a little loose. Heat from the grilling process will expand the metal of the rod, so if it is a tight fit to begin with you may not be able to remove it from the motor when it is hot.
