I was surfing Amazon the other day and stumbled across the Napoleon Shish Kebab Wheel rotisserie attachment. It looked cool, cost less than $20 and had a bunch of nice reviews.
Had to try it 🙂
The kit comes with two support wheels and six shish kebab spits. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to put everything together but it made sense in the end.
One side of the kebabs fits into the grooves and inner holes.
The other end of the kebab spits slide through the upper holes on the other support ring.
Both support rings are held onto the rotisserie spit with thumb screws.
For the inaugural run I loaded three spits with marinated beef chunks, two spits with bratwurst and one with baby carrots. Why carrots? Heck if I know…I was feeling frisky.
The kebabs are long enough to easily hold two bratwursts.
I loaded everything onto my Weber kettle rotisserie with the coals banked for indirect high heat. This gadget would work great on any gas rotisserie as well.
This rotisserie shish kebab wheel worked really well. I realize that this is goofy but I was really pleased with how well this device was for grilling brats.
The marinated beef was just an absolute delight.
In reality nobody actually needs this little gadget. Grilling kebabs on a kettle isn’t that hard and if you are going to get a rotisserie accessory then the Rib-o-Lator is probably the best way to go.
That being said, any excuse to bust out the rotisserie is a welcome excuse at my house. Even if I never use this device again I got at least $20 worth of fun out of testing it out.
