Instead of mounting the unit directly onto my drum, I wanted to build an extension.
I've had the Rib-O-Lator for months and had a problem finding a donor barrel to make the extension ring that would fit my drum.
I came up with the other 2/3 of the barrel I cut for the firebox on my smokehouse. (lol can't believe I saved that, but now happy that I did!)
The Rib-O-Lator is a 4 shelf unit that fits onto your rotisserie rod...
the old barrel section..
I used a resiprocal saw to cut the barrel to the size I wanted. Cutting the barrel on the outer lip of the ridge so it would fit on my drum...
The bottom barrel is just my work stand. lol
I drilled a couple of holes for the rotisserie rod..
I didn't want to permanently mount the rotisserie motor, it's a battery operated motor for camping... So I just bolted on a strap for the motor bracket to slip into...
the shelves have plenty of head space....
For mounting onto my drum, I use a regular ring to clamp the rotisserie extension on top.
This worked better than I had thought it would. :)
My only regret is I wish the extension piece I used was prettier. lol It has a few dents but it works!!
If you get the time, check out Bob's site. His Rib-O-Lator fits on about any sized grill. He also has other handy products for outdoor cooking.
Thank you again Bob... The Rib-O-Lator is great! :)
