Hey Steven, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to hangout with us. I love your show and watch it regularly. I am an avid griller and do a lot of whole animal spit roasting. Growing up Greek I was exposed to spit roasting lambs on a pretty regular basis. As I got older I took to learning the skill. Here is a shot of my Father and I spit roasting a pig for the family a few years back: My question is about charcoal and what types of fuels you have experimenting with. Do you have a particular brand of charcoal that you prefer? Have you ever made your own charcoal and if so is it worth the effort or are there enough quality commercial brands available that make that unnecessary. If you are interested I have two photo galleries that show how I roasted a whole pig and lamb in my photo galleries here: http://www.cheftalk.com/gallery/album/index/id/7889 P.S. Notice the potatoes underneath the pig.
