    Beth and Mike,
    This discussion very useful. I have similar issue – a new Alfresco Grills 29″ – except worse because one of my burners is the ceramic IR sear plate, not moderable. Further, a spitted 15lb turkey or 10lb ham is going to be in close proximity to the IR rotisserie burner … guess I’ll find out how quickly the outside is seared. Me thinks some combination of the above may likely be needed, including biasing the meat to side of the unlit burner (in my case the IR sear plate). The Alfresco’s rotisserie burner is almost full length; so I think this is possible. All thoughts certainly welcome. Will let everyone know how it turns out, and lessons learned.

  2. Hi Mike! I just discovered your site while searching for a rotisserie cookbook. We love to grill, but never busted out the rotisserie on our last grill. We recently completed an outdoor kitchen and got a little carried away with our grill—it cost more than my kitchen stove! We were really excited to take advantage of the rotisserie (with built-in motor) of this new fancy schmancy grill. Here’s the problem—being retirees, we bought a 30-inch two burner (with smoker box) which is plenty big for our grilling purposes, BUT how can we achieve indirect heat with only two burners?? If we position the meat to one side over the non lit burner then it won’t be in front of the IR rotisserie burner. Are we dead in the water? Gah!

    • That’s a tough one. My first thought is: can you use just the infrared rotisserie burner? If it can get the inside of the grill hot enough on its own – say, 350°F or higher – then you can probably use it all by itself. You’ll have to watch out for burning, though, because IR burners are powerful.

      How I would use it: IR burner on full for the first half hour to hour, to get browning started, then turn the IR Burner down to low (250°F to 300°F) and cook on low heat until the food is done. I know this will mess up recipe timing, but that’s OK – internal temperature is a better way to tell if the food is done anyhow.

      Good luck, and I hope this helps.
