Ketchup (catch up)

Recommended Posts

Hi, bought Ki Classic in Jan-16. Joined forums in February. My boys love honey soy wings so they were the first experiment. You guys inspired me to indirect/direct pork belly, pork loin and beer can chicken. The flavour and moisture as per the stories was incredible. Had an unused rotisserie from a rusted out kiwi BBQ. Mounted this for direct charcoal chicken. A few flare ups but turned out well and will be repeating. Keen to do low and slow ribs, pulled pork, leg lamb and pizza. Would like to sous vide too but do worry about waste when firing up for short sear. Maybe will have to cook to freeze!

Thanks to you all for sharing your experiences! Si

Love the makeshift rotisserie you have there.  Haha


 No issues with the wood burning up or adding extra unwanted flavors?

Hey Jesse, It was makeshift! the wood did start to darken. so I was rotating it and switching it around. Any suggestions on alternate materials found at home welcome as trying to solve before next go.

No extra flavours detected...

The only thing I can think of is getting a 2x4 and prop it up under the handle instead of inside the Joe. 


My neighbor still has a rotisserie that he never used, I just might try and steal your idea though. haha Is the other end mounted to that board or is it just resting on it?

I love that makeshift rotisserie also.

As for alternate materials. you could use fire bricks. You could make a form and cast one out of heat resistant material. You could nail a piece of metal on the wood with a gap behind.

Thanks Jesse and Marty.

I like the idea of the 2x4 resting on the handle idea. Simple and effective.Will have to get a length long enough!

The other end of the rotisserie is resting on the side table. I had to make it up as the mount was part of the original BBQ.just used two angle brackets screwed in facing each other.

Go for it-I was inspired by joetisserie but didn't like the idea of drilling into the Joe.would be keen to see a photo of your finished product!

Fire bricks could work but since their outside is quite rough, would they accelerate the deterioration of the seal?

Making a form and casting would result in a more professional finish. It's not something I have done before. Is it complicated?

I like the idea of the metal to insulate. Wonder about the thickness required - malleability vs insulation.would have to be thick enough so the wood didn't bake.

      Finally I got around to finish this idea I had for a long time, ever since I made the pizza ring. I picked up a set of Weber Rotisserie and lathed part of the shaft round to fit the Akorn. I cut two little "V" on the pizza ring and the drive motor sits perfectly on top fo the side table - lucked out on that one! The chickens were marinaded with Hawaiian Huli Huli Sauce for two days, with some Hawaiian Salt Seasoning, freshly ground pepper and they turned out amazing. I gotta thank my neighbor who worked at a construction site and got me a tuck load of dried out Kiawe wood. It burns really hot and long lasting. I'm starting to put a kit together and will report back on the progress.

      I have just got my rotisserie attachment sorted out for the kamado
       As I have not cooked with a rotisserie before I was looking for tips/cooking temperature advice for a whole chicken as a starter so I can get a feel for it. 
      Also some other cooks that a rotisserie is well suited for.
      Thanks in advance

      I'm throwing my annual Daytona 500 party Sunday and I grabbed 5 racks of baby backs at $2.68/lb.  Boneless ribeye is on sale for $7.98/lb, so I'm planning on trying out the new rotisserie stand I got for Christmas over an easy cinder block pit I'm going to set up with a 7-8 lb rib roast.  Never rotisserie'd anything before, so this could be a disaster.  A few questions for each...
      There will be a lot happening at once, so I'd like to get more done during the prep than during and after the cooks.  I'm wondering if cutting the ribs into sections--or even individually as this article suggests https://www.smoking-meat.com/august-13-2015-pre-slicing-ribs-before-smoking-them--has been a success for anyone.  My thoughts are smoke them for about 2 hours, put them all in an aluminum pan or two with some juice/sauce and rub covered for another 2, then take the top off the pans to finish them off for a bit.  After that I can just set the pans out and let people have at it.  This works beautifully with beef ribs, but I've never tried it with pork.  It sure would save me time and aluminum foil during the cook.  It will also keep anyone from grabbing too many and throwing meat away.
      As far as the prime rib on the rotisserie,  I'm planning on lighting a good base of coals topped with hickory logs I have and letting that dwindle down to a hot heap of coals.  Should I offset the roast a little with a pan underneath with some water in it to use the juices?  If so, I may be able to use our fire pit.  I think this will be a 5+ hour process, so I'm sure I'll have to add coals.  Since it'll be boneless, do I need to tie it with string or wire, or will the forks suffice?  This is going to be an experiment for sure, so I'm glad I'll have the baby back-ups.  Any open flame rotisserie experts out there?  As always, thanks for the help!

      So, I got my Joetisserie and began to look for a replacement motor in case after a year my motor failed. The joetisserie motor is .model RM-A101, and conveniently enough Onlyfire has the exact same model number motor that looks identical. Here is the link on Amazon for Canada, same item would be for the USA. 
      I ordered by both, and the stainless is going back, it does not match for reasons below. 
      Now this says it's rated for 20lbs and is 4 watts just like the Kamado Joe one except the kamado Joe says 50 lbs. which I find odd. 
      Also the stainless steel one on Amazon is a RM-A201 and the bolt pattern does not .match the Kamado Joe plate if you have to swap plates. 
      The description says it has anti backlash gears.
      It's not stronger for those looking for more power but this will allow you to swap adaptor plates and have a backup motor in case your motor dies during a spin possibly and this will get you back up and ruunnig. It's cheap insurance.  
      Can't upload photos from where I am but will try later. 
      Oh the joetisserie cord is longer.

      tDid the obligatory turkey for thanksgiving, but this was the first time on the Joetisserie.  Truth be told, this was only the third time I ever used the Joetisserie.  My setup was, coals  banked to each side, with an old metal bread loaf pan in the middle.  I filled the pan with water, mainly because I was afraid of grease hitting hot metal and making greasy smoke.  I had air dried the bird for about 15 hours in the fridge, then rubbed it with olive oil.  We sprinkled rub on the outside, and also worked some up under the skin. Also, we injected the breast with garlic butter.  The turkey really turned out tasty and juicy, but the skin was not crisp, in fact, we threw most of the skin away.  Did the water pan cause the rubbery skin?  The water was pretty much boiling, and maybe the vapor wasn't good?  I just can't imaging letting all that grease run into my grill, nor can I imaging the grease dripping into a screaming hot metal pan with no liquid.  Suggestions, comments, criticisms, etc........
