Spare Forks for a Weber Charcoal Kettle Rotisserie

Also known as Why Weber, part two. They stand behind their products, even after the sale.

You can get away with a rotisserie with only two spit forks, but I’ve had an extra set for years. Securing two chickens on a rotisserie spit is much easier with an extra set of forks. The Weber Charcoal Kettle Rotisserie only comes with one set of two forks, but I have a second set from my Weber Genesis Rotisserie that are the same diameter.

When I upgraded to the Weber Summit, the Genesis went to my sister-in-law. But…I forgot to include the rotisserie set that was in my basement. Which meant I got to keep my extra set of forks. I’ve been promising to give her the rotisserie set for years, but I kept forgetting.

What’s worse, she reads this blog, where I spend a lot of time raving about rotisserie cooking. She can’t try any of the recipes without that rotisserie set, which means I’m going to lose my extra set of forks.
*Sorry, Jackie!

I did what I should have done years ago. I called the Weber customer service number at 1-800-446-1071, and gave them the model number of the Charcoal Kettle Rotisserie (2290). An extra set of forks cost $15, plus shipping, and arrived a few days later. Quick and painless.

Once again, thank you Weber!

FTC disclosure: I bought all of the rotisseries and grills I mention in this post with my own money. I do get a small commission if you buy them (or anything, really) through the links on my site. Or a large commission if you buy the $2500 Weber Summit. You know you want one…

Oh, and I don’t get anything if you call Weber customer service. You should do it anyhow. They’re good people.

Hi! I’m Mike Vrobel. I’m a dad and an enthusiastic home cook; an indie cookbook author and food blogger with a day job, a patient spouse, and three kids who would rather have hamburgers for dinner.


  1. Mike from Austin says

    I just bought the Weber rotisserie for my baseline Weber Kettle (the one for $99). I got an extra pair of forks on Amazon that are the four prong, which I prefer. A little pricier at $15.99, but exactly what I wanted.

  2. I was able to just get a pair of extra forks, without the rest of the hardware. I did order them a few years ago; maybe Weber has changed their spare parts stocking since then?

    Mike, I tried to contact Weber to purchase an extra set of forks for my 2290 kit. Weber advised that the forks came as part of a $29 replacement kit that included mounting hardware and a counterweight. Is that what you purchased? I don’t need another counterweight and I want to pay what you paid.

      I just finished purchasing a set of extra forks Pt # 1097 from Weber for my 2290 Rotisserie spit. The Forks came with a mounting bracket for the motor and screws, which I don’t need. The forks kit was 10.76. With tax, and shipping, total 19.00.

    Getting an extra set of forks/tines is on my ‘to do’ list, though I didn’t like any of the 4-prong ones at Amazon.  I got my rotisserie kit from CajunBandit which comes with the 4-prong type, and I’ve been keeping an eye out for the right 2-prong forks at the right price.  Thank you for simplifying the task!
