Rotisserie Approximate Cooking Time Chart

If you’re new to rotisserie grilling and are wondering how long it will take to cook something, this page is our rotisserie approximate cooking time chart for grills. All rotisserie cooking requires Medium-Hot indirect heat, and a drip pan. A large enough pan will provide the indirect heat for you.

Fill your drip pan ½ way with whatever you are going to baste the meat with and be sure that the liquid never runs dry through the cooking process. A dry drip pan that fills with grease will quickly turn into a 3-alarm fire ruining a good meal.

Remember when unsure always use a meat thermometer and follow the USDA temperature guidelines.
