What cut of beef is great for rotisserie grilling

(Phila, PA)

Other than steak and brisket of beef, what other cut of beef is great for grilling or putting on a rotisserie?

I need to cook for 15-20 people. I would like a beef roast that will fit on a 22" rotisserie grill.

The general rule of thumb is "anything that's cylindrical" in shape but steer clear of the cheaper cuts such as chuck as this will be tough.

For the large number that you are cooking for I'd try either a rolled boneless rib roast, a rib-eye roast or top loin roast and get your butcher to string it for you.

If you can't one single roast that's big enough then buy another that's of similar size and thread them together.

If there was only a small number of you then tenderloin is also worth a crack (provided it is cylindrical) and can be threaded onto the spit.

One thing to watch with all these cuts is that they are relatively lean and free from connective tissue. That's great for ensureing a tender result but you always run the risk of drying out. When your butcher strings up the joint ask him / her to add some strips of fat to the outside as well.
