Default Rotisserie

Here's a thing I came up with the design and had a friend manufacture for me. A totally adjustable manual rotisserie, height and width, up to 42" span. No motor! Simply rotate one quarter turn every so often (according to fire and the amount of meat). Pull the pin, rotate, and replace the pin. Three simple pieces, two stakes and the spit (bar). Drive in the stakes, adjust the height and put the spit with the meat in place. I'm posting this, cause I'd like some feed back. These pics are the maiden spin in the back yard. Thanks for looking.

It looks simple enough and I would assume it would break down into a small package that could be slipped away anywhere in a B. Since most campsites seem to have fire pits I don't know if I would carry the tray for the fire wood.

Big point the pin to hold it. Tried manual myself and it always rotates to the heaviest side.

Really nice. Love roast or chicken on the rotisserie.

packs up nicely in a great denim bag the wife sewed and can fit into a very small space. And the pin does keep things in the desired position. The fire pit pictured was only used because of testing it in the backyard. It does not travel with us.

Thanks for the input,
