    HELP...Miss Kitty, or somebody. Got my new Ronco XL rotisserie, and it works great. I'm putting a 20 pound turkey on it today. I was wandering how and what to cook in that steamer pot that sits on top of it. I bought a recipe book off ebay written by the guy that designed this rotisserie, and even though it has over 200 recipes, NONE of them are for that stupid steamer pot. Any of you guys have any experience with that thing or anything similar?

    I wish I could help you. I don't steam veggies. I throw them on the grill or on the George Foreman or in a grill pan ;f

    OK, here is what I would try. Add my liquid: broth or water. Then add the veggies. Softer things like squash will cook faster, broccoli will take longer. Rice should take at least as long as the broccoli would. Note I am guessing here: but I would say squash would take maybe 15 minutes and broccoli 20? Rice maybe 20-30?

    Gotta grill pan/George Foreman? I can talk you thru that ;f

    How about sliced mushrooms with a little butter? Or you could sweat the vegies for stuffing - onions, celery, and mushrooms. Steamed baby carrots.

    Don't think I like this new format. Had a hard time finding this place. ANYWAY...thanks for the help. Since I was cooking my turkey last night, I needed something then, so I just made something up. I chunked up several potatoes (skin on) Most of them were new red potatoes. I chunked up a medium yellow onion, I found some frozen Anaheim peppers I've had for a long time, and chunked one of them up after seeding it. Was going to use 2, but thought if they were spicy at all, the Missus wouldn't eat it. Chopped up a little bacon..added about half a stick or a little less of butter (might have been margerine)...then shook a little cajun spice and a little garlic pepper on top. To get things started steaming, and to add a little flavor, I splashed a little bourbon in the bottom. About half-way through, I poured a little beer in, and some of the drippings off the turkey. Steamed it for over 2 1/2 hours while turkey was cooking. Came out great...the potatoes were soft, but not mushy, and had a great flavor. Couldn't detect any flavor from the bourbon, so I won't waste my whiskey on it anymore. Oh...and the turkey..If you ever ate rotisserie chicken, it's just like that, only bigger..YUM-YUM! We'll never roast another turkey...and that's my story and I'm sticking to it.;V

    8 to 10 minutes after you get a full head of steam and most veggies are great.

    You can cut them up in bite size pieces mix different kinds together.

    Or cook them separately at the same time.
