Looks great. Where is the skewer from? Been looking for something similar

Got mine from here off Ebay. Spike and base come apart for storing and cleans up in the dishwasher, good piece of kit for the grill. Could leave it as it is, for the cook, but finding it better to turn 90 degrees every 30 minutes or so, to even out the cooking on each side. Done Taco Al Pastor and this on it and both have cooked all the way through and way better than trying to balance bamboo skewers on an onion that I have used previously..

If using a grill best to put on a baking tray or something similar  as the marinade does run off the base and I know it would play havoc with it drying up on my Flavorizer bars.

I have emailed him to see if he can make a triple spiked one on a base for me, as I have a fabulous looking 3 different meats at once, recipe, I would love to do.

Thanks for the link. I will order one. Tacos Al Pastor was what I had in mind too. 

A three meat kebab sounds interesting

It's a simple but effective piece of kit for using on your BBQ/Smoker/Grill, it isn't going to produce results like a dedicated vertical rotisserie, but for £14 it's 👍

Taco Al Pastor works well on it as well, the flavours are amazing, overdid the pineapple on the top for my first go, but would put it on after 30-45 minutes into the cook next time, all part of the learning process.

Out of interest, how many were you feeding?

Depends how greedy your guests are and how generous you are with the fillings 😀. I got 8 well filled pittas from the Shawarma and 10 tacos for the AL Pastor

I used Hickory Pellets, but realise they have a different profile to chunks, but it worked well for me. Would also imagine Apple or Cherry chunks would go with it as well.

Any suggest which smoking wood would go well with this? My lad is just marinading the meat ready to cook tomorrow

Cheers n Gone Nick

You doing the dry rub Shawarma or the yoghurt type ones?
