Charcoal Pan Instructions

Charcoal Pan Usage Guide

Congratulations on your purchase. A charcoal pan is a great way to protect your rotisserie from the extreme heat generated when cooking with charcoal. While it will need to be replaced over time, replacing a charcoal pan is a lot easier and cheaper than replacing an entire rotisserie.

As it is normal for a charcoal pan to bend, warp and discolour due to the intense heat generated by charcoal/briquettes, this is not covered by warranty.

Benefits of charcoal pan:

·         Prolong the life of the rotisserie by protecting the spit body from damage due to hot coals burning in direct contact of the spit base.

·         Makes it easier to clean and empty the fat and ashes by removing the charcoal tray and emptying it out.

Normal charcoal tray characteristics:

·         Due to the extreme heat from charcoal or briquettes applied to these charcoal pans, they WILL warp and buckle.

·         Charcoal pans will also corrode over time


·         If the charcoal pan is extensively warped and it is affecting your cooking results then the charcoal pan can easily we twisted back in shape when they have cooled down

·         If desired, corrosion can be removed by buffing the rusted surface back to its bare steel then if you have a mild steel pan, you can respray it with pot belly black paint.


NEVER PUT OUT HOT COALS BY POURING WATER OVER THE CHARCOAL TRAY. THIS WILL DAMAGE THE CHARCOAL TRAY AND POTENTIALLY THE SPIT. If you wish to extinguish the coals empty them into a metal bucket and cover them in water.
