I recently got the Big Joe Joetisserie and have been cooking with it on the Big Joe a bit.  The classic Joetisserie is nice but the extra space you have with the Big Joe is the perfect setup for this.  There is a lot more clearance between the meat and the fire.  I have enjoyed the process even MORE with this extra clearance.  

 

The Komodo Kamado people with their rotisserie system have the same (if not even greater) advantage with the distance between the meat and the fire.  I can't wait to toss on a HUGE turkey.  I think this year's Thanksgiving turkey might just be 25 or more pounds.... Gotta start looking for that FRESH bird for this year.  I'm tired of grocery store packaged pre-brined turkeys....

here's a 17# on the Classic, it fit with ease so i'm thinking you should be able to fit a medium to large size ostrich on the Big Joe lol.    

@ButcherPete I have no options like that in my area.  I am going to go outside my local area to get the bird this year.  I'm not sure what or where yet but I will have a fresh bird and it will be a bi

Yeah, you should definitely get yourself a free range fresh turkey from a local butcher, not the supermarket.

I'm not sure who you have available in your neighborhood, but I'm sure anything beats butterball

Looks fantastic by the way, I have been considering getting a JoeTisserie for my big Joe(s) i'm just not too sure actually how often I will use it, so if it's worth it or not? I also find just roasting a bird on indirect heat I am able to get good crispy skin anyways, does it have a shorter cook time with the rotisserie?

I had no problem doing 2 chickens at the same time on my BIg Joetisserie. They came out great and I am also looking forward to doing a fresh turkey for Thanksgiving this year. We always do one in the oven and one on the grill for Thanksgiving but this year it will one in the oven, as usual and a fresh one on the Joetisserie

That looks fantastic, John.  Can you do 2 chickens at a time on the Big Joetisserie?  I have wondered, but I only ever see people doing one.

I have done two on my Classic at one time...It was a tight fit and I had to be a little creative with some butchers twine, but they fit. I am in the same boat as John in trying to find a unadulterated turkey. I have called around to different meat lockers and organic grocery stores with no luck. There is a turkey slaughter house about 20 minutes from me that has a store off of it I need to give  av visit.  I want to get a turkey breast, and also look and see if they got drum sticks. The drums remind me of a guy at the Iowa football games that sells them screaming "get your big ### turkey legs here"

Had the pleasure of meeting Pete and seeing his shop!  Great stuff there and even tried one of his deli sandwiches.  Great guy and amazing store!

Last thanksgiving i fit a 32lb turkey on the main grate of the big joe. Fit easily. I have a 36lb'er that needs to be eaten to make room in the freezer for my latest batch of broiler chickens.

 

My bro in law raises the turkey's. He does about a dozen a year. He usually doesn't let them get as big as he did last year.

      Finally pulled the trigger on a Joetisserie and can’t wait to start using it. First up want to do a chicken as that seems simple and easy, but given the two pack Costco sells has anyone done two birds at the same time on a KJ Classic? I’ve searched but haven’t found much Info with people cooking two, other than a picture which seems to be a Big Joe. Seems like it might be tight but should make it as long as they aren’t over 5lbs each. Also wondering if that affects cooking time.

      Hello There!
       
      Texan, currently living in Seattle, finally got a backyard to do some grilling in this summer!
       
      I'm currently grilling on a Weber performer, while I restore a Big Joe that I got off fb marketplace.  I have a thread in the DIY section with some photos if anyone is interested or has some good recommendations.  
       
      Can't wait to get cooking on the Kamado once it is up and running.  Most looking forward to cooking some pizzas and of course brisket, being a Texan!
       
      Thanks,

      Looking for some assistance in purchasing a Shish Kebab Wheel attachment for my KJ Classic 1 18".  It will be used with the Joetisserie rod.  I have the Napoleon 64000 basket that I current use as well.  I want to ensure that the shish kebab wheels will have clearance and that the kebab sticks are not too long.  I do not want to be cutting down skewers, basic plug and play.
       
      Pictures, product links will be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thank you all and Happy Grilling & Smoking

      Hello there!  
       
      I'm new to the world of Kamado cooking and to this forum, so I'm looking forward to some dialogue.
       
      So I recently found a Big Joe for sale on fb marketplace for the irresistible price of $100!  The main body is in not terrible shape, but it's missing quite a few items, and will need some cleaning/repair.  I'm hoping the combined expertise hear can help me get this thing in good working order for the least amount of extra $ possible, and more importantly without damaging the integrity of the grill.
       
      Condition Report:
      The ceramic body itself is in good shape with no major cracks or chips.  There are a few issues that need to be addressed however:
      The upper part of the interior has some green staining.  I assume this is from algae/moss since I live in the PNW.  Any tips on how to gently clean this, or should I just do a burnout when I get the rest set up?  The felt gaskets are in pretty bad shape and will need to be replaced (tips on cleaning and removing gunk would be welcome too).  The wire mesh gasket is mostly intact but has come loose.  Does anyone know of an adhesive that would be safe to use to re-attach it?   I'm not sure what to call this, but the hole that helps align the hinge on the back side of the band has been worn quite a bit.  Making the hole about 1 1/2" long and the ceramic a bit crumbly there (see pic).  Does anyone know of any substance I could safely patch this with, and how best to reattach the bands?  
      Missing parts:
      At that low of a price I wasn't too concerned about replacing a few parts, but after price checking I found I need approx $400-$450 in replacement parts.  I can get most of these from BBQ Guys, but I figured I would reach out to the community here and see if people had recommendations for third party replacements, custom ideas, or (fingers crossed) extra parts that they need to get rid of.  Here is a list of what I need:
      Firebox Deflector Grill Grates Flex cooking rack (is this necessary or is there another way to grill/smoke without it?) Replacement Gasket kit Missing the upper half of the cart, not sure if I will try and purchase that, or make a custom table I will be focusing on grilling and smoking with this grill, so I don't really need some of the specialty items.
       
      I know this is a lot of information/questions, so don't feel like you have to address everything, but if you have some advice on any of the subjects, I'd greatly appreciate it.
       
      Thanks and happy grilling!

      No more to say really...  2 years now with the keg, no regrets  - Except for the time I cleaned the outside with cleaner and ruined the finish! But it doesn’t affect the cook!!!!
