How much food can you actually put on?
It is all about balance! If the food is perfectly balanced on the rod so that there is no “Heavy Side”, you can put 50 pounds or even more if the rod is of substantial weight. This, however, is rarely the case. The food will always be out of balance to some degree. If this is the case, then you may only be able to have as little as 20 pounds on the spit. If it is balanced fairly well then you can expect to turn a load approximately 50 lbs.
The amount of food, baskets and other items including the spit, should total about 75% of the stated motor load, but can be as little as 20% or as much as 100%. This allows for other factors such as extreme temperatures or out of balance conditions.
The case measures: 6 x 3.75 x 2.5
