Cooking times for spit roasts
“The most common question I get from spit roasters is how long it takes to cook a particular type of meat/poultry. To that question, I tell them to use this as a general rule of thumb.” – Terry McEvoy of Spithouse Spits (www.spithouse.com.au).

Lamb – 1 hour per kilogram
