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.

John the end plates on the Kamado joe  motor can be switched to this only fire motor simply by unscrewing them and rescrewng them. They are an identical match less the shorter cord and mounting plate. So for people that cannot buy one from Kamado Joe like packer01 this would work for them, and at $24 it’s possible the only solution some people might have.

 

Though one would think a dealer would be able to order the motor for you. I find it odd Kamado Joe won’t sell the motor separately.

You’ll have to post pics when you can so we can see how you made this work.  KJ has to source there motor from someone. This is probably the company that supplies the motor.

Here are the photos of the two sides by side. The disassembled ones have the Joetisserie on the right and the only fire on the left. You can see the bolt pattern is identical, just unscrew and swap plates and your good to go. 1594946025_20181006_1029372.thumb.jpg.f72c3daf61142e76acad0e84d9fbeccf.jpg1366093063_20181006_1022312.thumb.jpg.bbeb409e8341b8a58e7f83ef926d51d4.jpg

I may be wrong but this motor has the same shape, size, and pattern there was no mystery to make it work. Amazon rates it at 20 lbs whereas the stainless one is 40 lbs but that may be misinformation so I take that with a grain of salt. 

 

Here is only fires websits of the item

Onlyfore make rods, forks etc. So it's not too far to think kamado Joe used them for the motor, Rod and forks and a casting company for the ring. 

 

We live in a global supply chain world where may parts get used by many different manufactures.

      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.

      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!
