Porchetta on Joetisserie

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.

      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. 
       
      https://www.amazon.ca/Universal-Replacement-Stainless-Rotisserie-Aftermarket/dp/B00X7RKFWG/ref=asc_df_B00X7RKFWG/?tag=googlemobshop-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=293002225578&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=1174210165666426299&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9000793&hvtargid=pla-502873780552&psc=1&th=1
       
      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.

      Seems like a great deal for someone that lives a bit closer. $500 for a huge K7 with some nice accessories. The price is cheaper than lots of new models....

      This past weekend, I did a spatchcock chicken on the Pit Boss.  It was some of the juiciest chicken I've had and it came out really good.
