The type of meat is usually from Sams club in 15Lb. chunk would appereciate suggestions thanks guys. Wade Hoagland Happy cows make good BBQ.
Wade, cooking over a spit is generally more for show then anything. it does make a good show. I would rub with my Head Country All-Purpose Championship Seasoning and then marinade in my Premium Marinade for 1 hour. Save the marinade and laddle over the top of the chunks of meat while cooking. If there is a way to determine the temperature I would cook at 275 for the first 4 hours. Then boost the temp to 300 degrees for the remaining time. Cook until the internal temp gets to 195-200 degrees. This may take 9-10 hours. You can spray apple juice or beef broth over the meat while cooking to keep it moist. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions. Paul
