Porchetta on Joetisserie


Logan
 Share

Recommended Posts

Someone had suggested making a porchetta on the Joetisserie. For those (like me) who aren't familiar with it, it is basically a pork belly with the skin on, rolled, cooked, and sliced for sandwiches and such. The goal is a buttery juicy interior and a crispy flakey exterior. And I think it was an outstanding success, if I do say so myself :)

 

Whole pork belly, had to ask the butcher at the asian market for it. Sprinkled it with salt, sliced garlic, dried rosemary, and ground fennel seeds. Roasted on Joetisserie for about 3 hours, but fought to keep temperatures below 400, due to the grease keeping the fire going! Sorry I don't have any pictures of it sliced, but we sure enjoyed it.

It really was something special, John. I'm definitely doing it again some time. I went to our local asian market, and they just had small strips of pork belly in their display. I asked for a whole one (using my hands to indicate size) and they happily got me a 14-pound slab of goodness.

I will check around some asian markets here and see what I can find....

I first had porchetta in Italy on a food tour.  It was AMAZING. When I search for recipes I either tend to find pork shoulders or belly wrapped around loin.  I tried one attempt a few years ago on the joe, it was good not great.  I am pretty sure authentic porchetta is a whole hog cook.

My Costco also has whole pork bellys cyrovaced.  They normally open them and slice them, but if you ask they can give you a whole cyro package.

 

There’s a Costco about 50 miles from me that has also. Along with whole lambs. My goal is to cook a whole lamb on the big Joe. :-D

 

magnifique! Wonderful looking cook.

This is on my list of must cooks. What did you serve it with?

 

Well...we had a guest who was on no carbs so we ended up just serving it plain with a bowl of curry and vegetables on the side, but my wife said it would have gone well with rice and I would have liked to have done some ciabatta bread and cheese for sandwiches or something.

      Hi,
       
      What are the most popular size of Kamado? Is there any data on whether 18" / 24" / Other are best sellers?
       
      Thanks

      All,
       
      I am new to the site and messed up the location of my post by initially putting it in the introductions section. Below is the link to that post.
       
      I am looking for ideas on small cracks forming in the firebox of my New Old Kinuura Yaki #5 Kamado.

      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.

      I have an opportunity to buy a Monolith classic (by size, pretty sure it isn't Le Chef) and looking for opinions on both the grill itself and whether it's a good price. About 1 year old, in good condition, with stones/grates, a CyberQ Cloud controller, and a table built by the owner. Unsure how well the control fan works (I couldn't get it to start with the CyberQ just fiddling around without lighting coals, and the owner said they never really figured it out). I've worked the seller down from $1575 to $1100 for everything, no tax, I pick it up myself. 
       
      1. What do you think about this brand and model? An established German company but only in the US market a few years without much penetration yet. Made in China, maybe at the KJ factory? 
      2. Is this a fair price, or should I try to work lower? I had planned to go with either the Ceramic Akorn or Grilla Kong at lower prices (without table), but is this worth spending a little extra?
       
        Thanks.
