Everyone loves succulent, slow-cooked meat, and a spit roast is a great way to bring this to your party, especially if you live here in Melbourne where a warm meal on a cool evening is always a hit. A charcoal spit requires very little attention and can cater for any group size. The smell of burning charcoal and roasting meat over open heat will have your guests eagerly anticipating the moment when juicy slices of pork, lamb, chicken or beef are served, and the memory of the perfectly cooked portions will provide an enthusiastic talking point for a long while after.
With Melbourne’s restaurant scene being such a foodie’s paradise, providing a comparatively delicious and innovative meal at home can provide a challenge – but with a charcoal spit roast on board, it’s easy!
For those wanting a selection of warm vegetables with their meat, we recommend placing corn, sweet potato or potato wedges on the grill under the meat and turning it regularly so that all sides receive a natural basting from above, and crisp evenly around the edges for that perfect crunch. With farmers’ markets springing up on weekends across Melbourne, you are sure to be able find the perfect plant–based produce to suit your gathering, your choice of meat, and your budget
