How to Cook With the Infrared Rotisserie Burner


An infrared rotisserie burner is a burner located on the back interior wall of some outdoor grills. These grills will also have mounting brackets so that you can attach a motorized rotisserie easily. The rotisserie burner provides an intense heat source to roast meat while it constantly turns on a motorized rotisserie. Rotisserie cooking allows you to evenly cook meat while searing the outside to seal in the juices and improve the flavor of the meat.

Things You'll Need

  • Rotisserie motor
  • Split rod
  • Meat
  • Meat thermometer
  • Remove the warming shelf from your grill. Remove any other grill racks that are in the way of the rotisserie attachment for your grill.

  • Install the rotisserie motor to the mounting bracket on your grill. The exact location of this bracket may vary from one model to the next. Plug in the power cord of the motor.

  • Attach food to the rotisserie's split rod. Place the rod into the opening on the rotisserie motor, and place the other end of the rod through the hole on the opposite side of the grill to keep the rotisserie in place above the main burners of the grill.

  • Move the meat on the split rod so that it is directly in front of the infrared burner. This will promote quick and even cooking.

  • Turn the rotisserie burner on by pushing the control knob in and turning it to LITE/HI. You will hear a clicking sound and see the burner light; continue to hold the knob in for an additional 10 seconds after the burner lights to ensure that it stays lit.

  • Turn on the rotisserie motor so the meat rotates during cooking. Cook until a meat thermometer indicates the internal temperature of the meat has reached your desired temperature.
