A Giant Rotisserie Kebab Is the Perfect Summer Grilling Trick
If you don't own a rotisserie, you're not grilling to your full potential.
The final days of summer grilling are here, folks. It's time to get in all the grilled peaches, steak and foil-packet everything you can before the warm nights turn into cold ones. (Not that we scoff at grilling in the fall or winter. Hello, turkey on the grill!)
If you're looking for one more big hurrah to make while summer Fridays are still a thing, we'd suggest picking up a rotisserie attachment for your grill and whipping up a Giant Rotisserie Kebab for four. Let us explain.
The Rotisserie Attachment, Explained.
You can purchase a grill rotisserie attachment for anywhere from $40 to $200. We used this Weber version (above) to make this recipe over charcoal, but we also found this version that's ideal for gas grills and the number two best-selling grill rotisserie on Amazon. Using a motor, this metal rod with prongs functions exactly like the rotisseries you probably see what you go to the grocery store. While the meat and veggies spin on the spit, the heat from the grill cooks them evenly and gently resulting in blistered veggies and tender meat.
Bigger Is Definitely Better.
You might be wondering why you need a giant kebab when you already know how to make the smaller ones. Well, for one thing, time. It takes a mere 25 minutes to thread all the meat and veggies onto the spit. Plus, you won't have to spend tons of time cutting up the vegetables to fit the size of the meat — some halves and quarters will get the job done.
Here's How to Eat It.
A giant kebab is best served family-style. Simply remove it from the spit and plate it up on a large platter with some flatbread for serving. It's easy for everyone to dig in without the mess that comes from removing kebabs on an individual serving plate. And, really, it just looks so much cooler. Which brings us to our next point...
It's the Simplest Show-Stopper.
If you're not one for complicated party tricks, this is your time to shine. This giant kebab is easy enough for a weeknight meal and cool enough to break out at your next backyard barbecue. It takes almost no time to prep and even less effort to cook. If that's not perfection, we don't know what is.
