Aslo here is a nice brick barbeque. I'm sure something like this could be addapted to a spit.

Here is another one. Also for a gas hook up you could probably scrounge an old gas fireplace and use it. This will take a long time to download on dialup, and you will have to answer a coupl of questions to get there. However, the questions are not invasive.

Ive seen spits made from old oil tanks, the tanks from household oil burner furnaces. The opening was cur from about 1/4 of it and hinged. A metal rod went from end to end, ( may have to reinforce the ends), could weld a small gear to it, and attach a chain drive for an electric motor, for the burner you could salvage some old burners from thrown away BBQ's or could buy them new., cut a few air holes near the bottom, and that should do it.
