Rotary Gridirons

Rotary Gridirons

Rotary gridirons would allow the hearth cook to provide more even cooking for the various meats, fish, bread that would be toasted or broiled over the coals.  The heat thrown from the embers of the main fire could be more evenly distributed by rotating the food that was directly in front of it.  A round rotating grill, usually creatively designed by the blacksmith, was mounted on a center rivet of a three-legged frame and handle.  The rotating gridiron on the left is a reproduction while the one on the right is an original piece. Visit my website at:
