Using a Rotisserie on the BBQ/Grill

Dear EFers,

I just bought a Rotisserie accessory for my BBQ and would like to try it out. I know how to set up the meat and cook it but I am not sure about how I can safely use my Gas BBQ to do it. (By the way, the Rotisserie accessory I purchased is manufactured by the same manufacturer as my BBQ. However, they gave no suggestions on how to use it)

I searched around and it seems that the way to cook it safely (without dripping lots of fat onto the flames and ending up with an inferno) is:

1) to remove the grills and place a tin tray over the lava rocks/heat spreaders.
2) Fill the tin tray half way up to the top with water and add any seasoning/herbs/flavours that you wish to use.
3) Make sure the tray is under the chicken/pork/beef or whatever your meat is so that it will catch the dripping fat during cooking.
4) Close the lid and cook the meat to your preference.

Is this the correct way? Has anyone used a Rotisserie on a BBQ before? I want to know as: a) I don't want to set fire to my new BBQ, b) I don't want to waste a perfectly good chicken and c) I don't want to splatter exploding chicken all over my patio.

Any tips would be appreciated as I want to try it out tonight. If you hear fire trucks heading towards Elgg tonight, it's probably to assist me with the aforementioned exploding chicken inferno.
