DIRECTIONS

  • For a G.E. Countertop Oven with Rotisserie:.
  • Combine all the ingredients of the rub. Use on poultry: lightly brush bird with olive oil, then rub spice mixture over and under the skin. Let marinade for up to 12 hours.
  • Warning: Do Not reuse leftover rub or marinade after it has been applied to meat or poultry; it may contain harmful bacteria.
  • Use a baking twine to secure the bird(s) legs and wings to keep from flopping around as the rotisserie is turning.
  • Position a rotisserie fork at the opposite end of the spit from where the point is located and secure into position using the thumbscrews.
  • Thread the spit through the bird(s) cavity and secure the fork into the meat of the bird.
  • Place the second fork onto the spit and secure into the meat.
  • Insert the pointed end of the spit into the rotisserie motor and the other end into the support.
  • Place the drip pan in the oven in the lowest position to catch the drippings.
  • Turn the timer to the Stay on position (I set mine to 60 minutes then to 30 minutes so I have to check on the birds). Allow to cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • For the mop:.
  • Mix all ingredients in a pot, and heat over med/low for 20 minutes.
  • Let the mop cool before placing in a sprayer.
  • Moisten the birds by spraying the mop onto them about every 20 to 30 minutes during cooking.
  • Birds are done when juices run clear and the legs separate from the birds easily.
