About Auspit

Auspit was invented and introduced by Rhett Thompson. Rhett wanted to create a system to make outdoor cooking easy and effective and above all being capable of producing food that tastes to its best ability. The spitmate is the product that really expands the system and caters the imagination. A stainless steel barrel that gently tumbles, this accessory can cook vegetables to golden perfection, roast nuts or coffee beans and offcourse slices of marinated Greek lamb that make your mouth water (have a look at some Rotisserie favourites: http://pinterest.com/auspiteurope/rotisserie-recipes/). Another challenge was the concept of being able to cook the largest range of products using the least amount of equipment.

While ” spit roasting” generally conjures visions of meat in large sections, the Auspit can cater for just one person to up to 20 people. The Auspit can roast your shrimps, mussels or baby octopus in the “spitmate” as easy as a 6 kilo turkey. Auspit means a whole different dimension in BBQ and Rotisserie.
