Napoleon Rotisserie Basket

I've been wanting a basket for a wee while, but there isn't that much available. There's the OnlyFire ones on Amazon, but they are full of razor sharp edges. If they don't rip your hands to bits cleaning them, then they will flay the skin off the chicken. 

The Broil-King looks good, but they've been unavailible for ages. Weber do one, but it's coated mild steel, and IMHO, mild steel has no place near food. Kamadoe Joe released one, a very over-engineered piece, but the design looked good. The problem is that it's coated steel again, and KJ have had problems with the coating coming off any of their black metals. AFAIK, they have stopped selling it and any buyers are getting full refunds.

That left the Napoleon 64000. Stainless steel, nice and simple and effective. Again, they've been out-of-stock everywhere, but I recently managed to get one. It's well made, you put it on the rotisserie rod, fill it with food and let it spin round (there's not a lot more to say about a rotisserie basket at the end of the day!). It does a damn fine job of chicken wings, getting them nicely crisped all over. You can also chuck baby new spuds or other veggies in there for roasting too. It fits nicely with room to spare on my Big Joe. I believe that it will also fit a Classic, but is very tight. Cleaning is easy...just bung it in the dishwasher. If hand cleaning then I'd recommend chucking it in a bucket of hot water and detergent to soak and soften the gunk.

If you've got a rotisserie and want to take your wings to the next level then this is £60 well worth spending.

That looks like a great piece of kit!

Never thought of getting anything like that before on a rotisserie. Does it just slide over the standard rotisserie bar?

Yeah I read it again and see the answer is already there doh!🤦‍♂️

It'll fit pretty much anything up to (I think) half-inch hex bar.

460mm end-to-end and 195mm in diameter. I'd expect that it's fit on a Weber kettle too.

Thanks for that!

Good to know for the future.👍🍻

Where did you manage to get it? Have been searching for one for months with no luck

They're as rare as chickens teeth, and have been for a while. I think that I got it from Dawsons BBQ World. but they are showing as no stock again.


I did find this though....looks like it's built like a tank. It's a little bit smaller (about 25mm in both diameter and length) but that'll make it easier to fit on smaller BBQs. Looks good value.
