If you want a rotisserie for your Weber kettle then you have some great options to choose from!
Three companies are currently making rotisserie rings for Weber charcoal grills:
- Weber: Rings for 22.5 inch kettles only ($179)
- OnlyFire: Rings for 22.5 inch kettles only ($110)
- Cajun Bandit: Rings for 18.5, 22.5 and 26.75 inch kettles ($160-$230)
All of these companies are selling complete kits which include the ring, a spit with two forks and a motor. Let’s take a closer look at what these different companies are offering.

The Weber product is made of porcelain enameled steel and is powered by a motor rated for 25 pounds. The motor needs to be plugged in to a power outlet which is a mixed blessing. On one hand you never have to worry about the motor having enough juice but on the other hand you will have to look at an extension cord running across your deck.
The biggest issue with the Weber product is the $179 price tag.
Onlyfire is a new player in town. If you spend some time reading their marketing material it becomes pretty obvious that they are an overseas factory selling direct as a brand.
The nice thing about buying direct from the factory is that the prices are as low as you can get.
Onlyfire has a couple of different models for sale on Amazon including black, stainless and one kit that comes with a pizza stone. I have no idea why you would want a pizza stone with your rotisserie. Things are kind of strange with Amazon inventory recently so I think it is better if you go directly to the Onlyfire website to check out what they currently offer.
Cajun Bandit makes an awesome array of stainless steel rotisseries that fit 18.5, 22.5 and 26.75 kettles.
For each size rotisserie you have a choice between a battery powered motor or a traditional motor with a cord. I have used the battery powered version and found it was more than powerful enough for my needs.
What sets the Cajun Bandit products apart is that the rings can be flipped over and used on the Weber Smokey Mountain cookers. To the best of my knowledge these are the only rotisseries that fit the 18.5 and 22.5 WSM.
Cajun Bandit is a small American company turning out great products. The guys over at Cajun Bandit always get rave reviews for their customer service. It’s nice to support the little guy.
Weber used to be a family run business but got sold to private equity a few years back. Their customer service is still top notch. I do not know if their rotisserie ring is made in America anymore but I doubt it. In fact, I suspect they are made in the exact same overseas factory that makes the Onlyfire product.
