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.
