  1. Piercing side of the beef or Loin of pork with a skewer will make it easier to attach to metal rod.
  2. The Rotisserie can be used above a moderate fire or above the heat-bead basket.
  3. If you want to use the rotisserie as soon as the fire is lit. We recommend that you cover the food with foil for the 1st 10 minutes. If using heat beads, please make sure that the beads have �turned� in colour (ash white).

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

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.
