A method of cooking developed from the spit over the open fire. The joint is secured on a shaft close to the source of heat and continuously rotated as the meat cooks - the heat coming from gas burners, or electric elements. Joints and poultry cooked in this way are particularly juicy, as they are constantly basted.
