Rotisserie Turkey

I want to use my new outdoor kitchen for Thanksgiving this year. Does anyone have experience with using the Rotisserie on the BBQ for the Thanksgiving Turkey? Did you stuff it? Need to to baste often? Any pointers would be swell!

*I am using the wood fire oven for sides, all advice is welcome.

    1. Need to to baste often?

      Rotisserie cooking is self basting, no? I do not know how large your grill is, but I would recommend using bird/s that are in the 10-14 pound two if necessary or possible. Larger birds would be problematic due to size.

      1. You don't stuff a rotisserie bird. Years ago we'd make chicken on a rotisserie and basted it with lemon butter, but as fourunder points out, rotisserie is self-basting.
