Make Your Very Own Chicken Rotisserie


Recently on Channel 4’s Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast, the talented Jimmy Doherty demonstrated how to make your very own DIY chicken rotisserie. We loved the idea, so we thought we’d share the idea along for you to try at home.

What You’ll Need

  • Wire mesh sheet 1000 x 1000mm (non-galvanised)
  • Aluminium sheet 500 x 1000mm
  • Fire bricks appox. 15
  • Wire
  • Threaded rod with nuts, bolts and washers
  • BBQ Rotisserie Kit
  • Firewood

What Tools You’ll Need

Personal Protective Equipment

  • Safety Goggles
  • Cut resistant gloves

So how do you make it?

Fortunately, Channel 4 have drawn up instructions on how to recreate Jimmy’s design.




If you’ve followed the instructions correctly, you should now be ready to get roasting your own chicken.DIY_Cooking

The DIY chicken rotisserie would be perfect for the garden during summer, so if you’d like to have a go at making your very own chicken rotisserie, you can find weld mesh on the Metal Store website here and aluminium sheets here.

If you’d like to watch the man himself, Jimmy Doherty, make the rotisserie, you can watch Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast on 4oD here – but only for so long!
