First, a brief confession.  I have had a joetisserie for about a year, and only used it maybe 3 times.  Did a chicken, a turkey, for some reason just a little underwhelmed with the whole process, and then all the extra cleaning up.  Until today...

    Had a small pork loin in the freezer from my BIL's pig.  Watching John Setzlers video on spinning a pork loin, plus a recent post on the Facebook group made me decide to dig the Joetisserie out again.  Injected it with applesauce/apple juice mixture, slathered in mustard and coated with my wife's cajun spice rub.  After about an hour and 15 minutes of spinning at 325 degrees, we pulled it off and left rest for 10 minutes.  My wife thought I was going to break into tears with my first bite.  Words fail me to describe it.  The subtle flame kissed outside, the juicy inside, so soft you could cut it with a fork!  You can't buy food this good at a restaurant (at least not a restaurant I can afford).  Thanks again John for your excellent video.

The pictures are worth a thousand words, but your words were pretty good too.  Not often you hear a pork loin described as tender and juicy.

I agree, I always thought of pork loin as a rather tough cut.  I think the applesauce injection was the ticket.  I didn't include a plated shot because it didn't turn out real well, but as we sliced the loin, the juice was pooling on the plate.

Congrats on the cook! So, regarding cleanup, you can't just ramp the temp and burn it off? I have one in my far distant future.

I actually hadn't thought about that.  DUH.   Will have to try that next time.  Hoping to maybe do another spin of something over this coming weekend.  I think I may actually start using this more.

I have been using my Joetissirie more often lately and hadn't been previously for the reasons you've mentioned. Like other things it takes some practice and patience. I just spun a leg of lamb, wings, and a chicken over the past month. The wings were done with the Napoleon rotisserie basket that was recommended to me a while back.

 

Now that I have the process down pat for setting the right amount of coals, air flow and methods of catching the drippings I have been looking new ways to use it.

 

Looks like pork loin will be my next adventure, your post looks absolutely amazing and as others have commented your description sold me even further!

Looks great!  Do you have a link to the recipe or video?  Did a quick search and couldn't find it.

 

Sorry, just saw your post, only 2 months later.  I'm sorry, I cant remember where i saw johns video, i watch so many.  I'm trying to do better at bookmarking.  I actually followed an injection recipe from another source.

Pork loins can come out of the kamado unbelievable. I am planning to bacon wrap my next, if we still have bacon.

      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!!!!

      Ingredients
      - Chicken Wings
      - Oil
      - Kosmos Q Wing Dust (optional)
      - Your favorite Wing Sauce 
       
      Directions
      This cook is so simple! I take the wing portions and coat them in some neutral oil (canola, EVOO, Avocado). Then I toss in Kosmos Q Wing dust - for this one I used their Buffalo version but you can chose your favorite. If you don't have wing dust, you can use salt and pepper along with some cayenne. Once the wings are coated I throw them into the Napoleon basket which is attached to the JoeTisserie. As with most of my JoeTisserie cooks, I bank the coals to the back and let them come up to about 400-425 degrees. Put the JoeTisserie in place and turn it on! The wings will rotate for about 45 minutes, or until perfectly golden brown and crispy. Take them out and enjoy as is or with your favorite wing sauce! 
       
      I love doing wings this way. For me, it's the best way to get consistently crispy and perfectly done wings. The really taste like they came out of a fryer. 
       
      Enjoy the video!

      This was an outstanding meal and pretty easy to cook.  The veggies cooked in a foil pack with a little pork rub and olive oil.  The loin cooked indirect at 300°f for about 90 minutes and was pulled at an internal temperature of 148°f.
       

      I cut this open, dusted with some pork rub, cream cheese and fresh spinach out of our garden. 
       

      Tied it up nice and tight and put in in the preheated Primo.
       

      Just about ready!
       


      Yum, the spinach was juicy and the cheese creamy.
       

      The sprouts and asparagus steamed perfectly in their own juices and complimented the pork very well.
       

      Had to have something refreshing to finish this meal with!

      I didn't intend on this being part of the March challenge as I haven't yet participated, but here it goes. I have had the Joetisserie for a few months now and am always looking for a reason to use it. Since it's the time of year lamb is grilled, braised, smoked, etc. I've seen several post and decided to give it a try on the spit. 
       
      Picked up a 4 lb leg of lamb as Costco and followed a marinade recipe online:
       
      https://www.food.com/recipe/greek-lamb-rotisserie-grill-methods-229788
       
      Ingredients for the marinade are:
       
      3 to 4 tablespoon lemons, juice and zest of
      1⁄4 cup olive oil
      6 garlic cloves, minced
      1 teaspoon thyme
      1 teaspoon oregano
      1 teaspoon rosemary
      1 bay leaf
      salt and pepper
       
      I marinaded overnight and then set it up on the Joe for around 2 hours until the internal temp was 135. Since it was thicker in the middle the internal temps weren't consistent but it worked well because I like mine more on the rare side and the wife likes hers a little more done.
       
      All in all I was very happy with the experience and will be adding lamb to my rotation.

      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.
