On a beer can bird there are no holes needed outside the natural ones at top and bottom and the liquids in the can are constantly basting from inside the carcass. IMO

In my expert opinion a squeak problem would call for WD40 not duct tape.
UR welcome.

BTW the bird looks great.

IMHO , this would alleviate Both your squeek and a dry bird issue.
Plus, at this price it's a steal !!Image

I love my rotisserie. It fits on my BBQ charcoal grill. I've always had nice juicy results. You could try brining the bird for 24 hours, for added moisture.

There were only 2 skewers and they went through the bird right by the wing/breast joint. The rest fit through the bird without other punctures; I went right through the cavity :cheers:

Thanks again all! I certainly need to give brine a shot for one of these.
Don: Yes, tasty it was. Just tough and dry :(
WoodV: I am nearing a closed deal with the finance dept, a.k.a. "Wife", on one of those!

Up soon is tri tip on this squeaky contraption. I think I am going to name it "Heffalump". Winnie the Pooh fans will know what the name is. This thing sounds JUST like an elephant trumpet lol

why don't you try to keep a lower cooing temp? probably a low temp could help to don't dry the bird... :dont:

I did some beef on it yesterday and OMG, soooo good!! Good chunk of rump roast. Spun it right 'round for about 90 minutes, came out a perfect med-rare! Wasn't dry, a tad on the tough side but c'mon, it WAS rump :laughing7: Tri Tip would be phenomenal on this. The squeak? Still there, and yes, when it heats up. After about an hour it gets to squalling like a strangled elephant.. It has been moved to its own little table on our front deck 8)

Good deal on the beef spin and as far as the squeal goes, as long as your neighbors don't start calling 911 then let her squeal. It has to be expansion that causes eventual rubbing of parts and ?if? they rub long enuff then something has to give. :roll:

I flat out refuse to cook any large poultry without brining for at least 48 hrs. Takes what would be a normally dry bird to a whole new level. If you are so inclined, jalapeno butter injection is a great flavor profile as well. I do a mix of Adkins rub and a fajita seasoning 50/50 and rub liberally after a little EVOO to help it stick.
