hi there well as requested we are updating you on our first cooking experiences. lighting was no problem we used two bags as suggested.used all small skewers and one cage on top position when sm /ske were ready a second cage was added and both moved to lower positions.only problem is we did not have cages at 90 and they touched but realised this and moved one.no black and charred food so compliments all round. when both motors were used we forgot batteries so short delay while some were found again. second meal was roasted chicken again no problems other than me not reading instructions lesson now learned.bird took about 45 mins and was spot on.the general boys chat over my new toy was very positive so happy days!!
