I will venture a guess you can have a worm mechanism (gears) so you can turn all the skewers at the same time.

Mangals - as the Russians call 'em -can be bought with a little geared motor in Cyprus for turning the skewers..not seen 'em in Russia -

Brought the caboodle back from Cyprus - Sparky is still living having sampled my culinary efforts with said apparatus.... Sod gas bbq's - it's just not as tasty

Near, it is to do with turning the skewers.

Basically, the grill unit has small slots in its sides, and the skewer twists fit there, when you want to turn the meat a little, you just push the skewer a little in the slot, which in turn turns the meat but continues to hold the skewer firmly..

You should be able to see the slots..

If they are the same as the ones which I use, and they do look the same, they will be good, also easy to clean, and mine are about 8yrs old now, but still good, in fact was using them last night.

I would recommend these to anyone who likes to BBQ.

Agree, gas is for the lazy! Piva always tastes better with wood flames.
