You're probably thinking of an illustration from Scappi's Opera (1570), 
which shows a couple of mechanized spit, apparently turned by the heat 
rising from the cauldron.  A URL for he illustration is below.  There may be 
other information in the Florilegium.


Most other illustrations show spits being turned by hand.
