HOW BIG ARE THE SPITS? 2000mm long x 700mm wide x 1000mm high.
CAN I HIRE A SPIT FROM WA EXCLUSIVE MEATS AND SUPPLY MY OWN MEAT? No, we have had spits damaged by customers who tried to prepare the spit themselves.
HOW MUCH MEAT DO I NEED? We recommend 300g per person. This takes into account other food such as salads and bread rolls being served with the meat.
WILL WA EXCLUSIVE MEATS DELIVER AND PICK UP THE SPIT? Yes. We deliver and/or pick up the spit at no extra charge within 10km of our premises. Additional charges apply for areas requesting delivery/pick up outside this range. If collecting and/or returning yourself, you will need a box trailer or ute with securing material to transport the spit.
HOW DO I CLEAN THE SPIT? Cleaning is very straight forward. We recommend cleaning the spit as soon as possible after cooking, or at least soak it in hot soapy water immediately after use. Cleaning is optional, refer to the 'Spit Hire Conditions' below.
DO I NEED A GAS BOTTLE? Gas bottles are not included in the hire. You can provide your own or we can supply for an additional $38.50 (inclusive of gst).
HOW DO I SET UP THE SPIT? WA Exclusive Meats will secure the meat to the rod ready for cooking. All you have to do is plug an electrical extension cord into the rotisserie motor and connect up a standard 9kg BBQ gas bottle for cooking. (All this is explained again when you pick up the spit.)
HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN THE MEAT IS COOKED? We usually recommend 3.5 to 4 hours cooking time at 68 to 70 degrees celsius. We advise customers to use a cooking thermometer to check the temperature during cooking. More information will be given specific to your meat at time of pickup.
HOW FAR AHEAD SHOULD I BOOK? Bookings should be made a few weeks prior to the date the spit is required. For special events such as Christmas, Boxing Day, New Year's Day and sporting events, you may need to book months in advance. The best advice to avoid disappointment is book as soon as your event date is set!
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST? The cost for spit hire is based on weight of meat purchased. It is $132 (inclusive of gst) where meat is below 15kg OR "Free of charge" for meat weighing 15kg and over. As the market price of meat fluctuates, we calculate the cost of meat when we provide a quote. Generally lamb and pork are more expensive than beef. A deposit of $150 is essential and refunded one spit is returned. Other costs may be applicable for gas bottle, cleaning and delivery/pick up - please refer to 'Spit Hire Conditions' below.
WHAT ARE MY PAYMENT OPTIONS? Payment terms for spit deposit include cash or credit card at the premises. Alternatively, we can process credit card payments over the phone.
