Using
the
Rotisserie
The rotisserie
system
consists of
three main parts - the motor,
the
skewer
which
holds
the
food,
and the infrared
rotis burner. The
rotisserie
evenly cooks large cuts
of meat
by turning
them
contin-
uously
in front
of a high-intensi-
ty burner.
The rotis is capable
of
turning
up to a 25 lb. cut of meat.
THE MOTOR
The rotisserie
motor
runs on
12
volt
DC power
that
is supplied
by the grill. To power
the motor,
plug
the
"L" shaped
jack
of the
power
cord
into the
motor,
and
plug
the other end into the jack
provided
on the left side of the
grill
(see figure
16-1). This hook-
up allows
for simple
installation
and
removal
of
the
motor
for
storage
when
not in use.

NOTE:
The
grill
must
be con-
nected
to
115 volt
AC power
as
described
on page 7 for the rotis
motor
to function.
Install the motor
onto the grill by
sliding
it onto the bracket
locat-
ed on the left side of the grill.
THE
SKEWER
To load the skewer, slide one of
the meat holders onto the skew-
er. Push the skewer through
the
center
of the food, then slide the
second
meat
holder
onto
the
skewer.
Center
the
food
to
be
cooked
on the skewer then push
the meat holders firmly
together.
Tighten
the thumb
screws
(use
pliers if necessary). It may also be
necessary to wrap
the food with
butchers
string
(never use nylon
or
plastic
string)
to
secure
any
loose portions.
Remove
the
warming
rack and,
if needed,
remove the grill racks
and
briquette
trays to gain
bet-
ter clearance. It is normal
for the
skewer
to
flex
when
cooking
large foods.
Place a basting
pan
beneath
the
food
for
basting
and to ease cleaning.
Never
operate
a
grill
burner
with a basting
pan in place.
The skewer for the rotis is assem-
bled
into
the
motor
assembly
by placing
the pointed
end
into
the motor,
and resting the short,
round
end (threaded
end on 27"
models)
onto the support
at the
opposite
side
of the
grill.
With
the skewer
pushed
into the mo-
tor, it should
rest on the bracket.
The Lynx rotisserie
features
dual
positions
to
accomodate
larger
cuts
of meat
or to allow
slower
cooking
(see figure
16-2). Any
food
to be cooked
should
be a
minimum
of 2" from
the surface
of the infrared
burner.

THE INFRARED
BURNER
The
location
of the rotis
burner
makes
it
more
susceptible
to
strong
wind
conditions
(more
so than
the
main
grill
burners).
For this reason you should
avoid
operating
the rotis during
windy
conditions.
As an added
safety
feature,
the burner
is equipped
with
an automatic
safety
valve
which
will
not allow
gas to flow
to
the
rotis
burner
if
it
is not
properly
lit.
To
light
the
rotis
burner, follow
this procedure:
1)
Open
hood
completely.
Do
not attempt
to light
grill with the
hood closed.
2) Load food
onto
skewer,
and
install
motor
and
skewer
onto
grill in desired cooking
position.
3) Check to ensure that all burn-
er control
knobs
are set to OFF.
Test ignition
system
by pressing
Rotis control
knob in and listen-
ing for clicking
sound
of igniter.
If no sound occurs, proceed
with
troubleshooting
or
match-light
the burner.
