The word, from the venerable phrontistery:

ponask v 1922 -1963
to cook game by splitting it and roasting it on a spit
We ponasked the freshly-caught pheasant at our campsite.


No funny formatting, probably no funny me:

Ariella carefully placed the pot of darjeeling between the green-tinted turbary and matching lacticello.
