Operating the Rotisserie Burner
Your Solaire Grill is capable of performing rear burner rotisserie cooking, a method of slow
cooking. The location of the rear burner allows the placement of the Solaire BBQ Tray drip pan
accessory (not included) beneath the food to collect juices and drippings for basting and gravy.
To flavor the contents of the drip tray, you can add herbs, onion, garlic or spices.
Drippings from the food must not be allowed to fall onto the Main (underneath) Infrared
Burner(s) (if equipped), as non-warranty damage to the burner may occur. Place a pan on
top of the Infrared Burners to catch the drippings, or remove the burners from the grill before
commencing rotisserie cooking.
You can speed up the cooking time by “blasting” the food on the rotisserie with infrared
energy from both the Rear and Main Infrared burners. Once the juices start to flow out of the
food (usually in 10 to 15 minutes), turn the Main Infrared burners to LOW and place the
Solaire BBQ Tray accessory underneath the food. The BBQ Tray rests on the grilling grid
supports. Then, fill the BBQ Tray with water, brine or other liquid. The liquid prevents the
BBQ tray from warping; it will also steam up and self-baste the food, adding moisture and
flavor. Periodically refill the BBQ Tray with the liquid. Close the lid as desired to further
reduce cooking times.
Open the hood. Push and turn the Rotisserie Burner Knob to the HI position.
Keep the control knob pressed in and immediately depress the igniter button. Continue to
depress the igniter button until the burner lights. Continue to fully depress the control knob for
20 to 30 seconds, or until the burner remains lighted when the control knob is released. If the
burner does not remain lighted, retry the lighting again, and hold the control knob for a few
seconds more than before. The thermocouple must be heated before the burner will remain
lighted after releasing the control knob.
The rotisserie motor is capable of turning up to a 25 lb. cut of meat. The motor is mounted to a
stainless steel bracket, which can be attached to either side of the grill. The rotisserie motor
