If you've ever watched a chicken turning lazily on a rotisserie, you've experienced firsthand the value of cooking as entertainment. Stick a few hungry viewers in front of a rotating bird, and you'll have rotisserie converts for life. It isn't just the mesmerizing, revolving motion, either. Rotisserie cooked meats are amazingly moist. The juices (not just the fat, but the flavorful juices in the meat) don't drip out as they can during other types of cooking and grilling. Because rotating the meat keeps the juices circulating, rotisserie prepared fare is naturally basted from the inside out.

There's more. Less dripping means less smoke, which results in grilled foods with wonderful aroma that won't make your eyes water while they're making your mouth water. You can find countertop rotisseries, accessory rotisseries (from specific range manufacturers), and even rotisseries you can mount to your fireplace. Rotisseries are surprisingly easy to use, and they're addictive, too. If you crank out dry turkeys and shriveled roasts no matter what technique you're using, put a new spin on mastering meat with a rotisserie.
