  • Beef roast (marinated works great but just a plain beef roast is fine).


  1. You can use a plain cut of beef or you can buy a pre-marinated piece, alternatively you can marinate your own overnight in your favourite marinade.
  2. Mix together all dry rub ingredients and thoroughly coat beef roast with the mix.
  3. Thread the beef roast onto the Ozpig rotisserie spit taking care to keep it evenly balanced.
  4. Place rotisserie on the Ozpig and turn motor on. Let cook until meat is done to your liking topping up heat beads, charcoal or fire as needed.
  5. For beginner spit roasters I would recommend heatbeads or charcoal in the heatbead basket. Charcoal gives the best results of the 2 as it burns cleaner and gives off the lovely smokey taste of a regular timber fire. I cooked a 1.8kg roast using 1kg of charcoal taking just under 2 hours at Medium-well done. When cooked rest meat well for best most tender results.

Great bit of kit

We have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars

Big pig - loving it

We love our big pig . It’s so beautiful to sit around having the large opening and we are loving the smoker having started making beef jerky . We had a baby pig but this one is hands down the best

Series 2 - a genuine belter!

Series 2 - a genuine belter! Loving my series 2! During my "burning in" tests it really does belt out some heat, one of the primary reasons for the purchase. Guaging heat, I've cooked a couple of hamburgers and some stove top coffee all with great success. My only suggestion is when you've finally decided to treat yourself to a piggy, super treat yourself and get as many of the accessories as you want at the same time. You'll want to use em and I guarantee you'll go back and buy them anyway. No sell, thats a fact, so go the full hog! (thats a pun) Great service, fast post and I'm genuinely looking forward to the colder weather kicking in.

Exactly what I was looking for

- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.
