I did roast over a grill and with campfires several years ago but I  
think it was a long tradition. Ron Kyle made and sold well built grill  
roasters over in South Carolina, just like I can't remember the name  
of the cat on my desk.  He was a list member for many years but died  
about a year ago I think.  I once stopped by his house and had a  
coffee and an enjoyable conversation on a trip up I-85 a couple of  
years ago.  I will never forger how disappointed he was when I beat  
him in the home roast competition at a home roasting event a few years  
ago.  I never did buy a grill roaster from him because I had already  
made one.  His grill roaster drum business was continued by a friend  
of his, the web page is still on line:
