Joetisserie Double Birds on KJ Classic

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 done two chickens on my big Joe many times. If you are concerned about space instead of putting the rod through the birds cavity why don't you put the rod through the side of the bird so the bird is vertical instead of horizontal. That should give you plenty of room for two birds.

That could work, thanks. Assuming cook time is the same?

      Hey guys,
       
      I just got a Joetisserie / Napoleon basket and did a batch of wings...good lord, those are good. My only problem is that I use a temp controller and the only way I could use the pit probe today was dangling through the top hole. This worked but it wasn't very repeatable or exact (since I couldn't really see where it was dangling or if it was touching sides, etc). 
       
      How do you guys approach this issue? I've heard of brackets or hanging it off the inside temp probe but how are you doing that? Is there some special mount that I need?
       
      Any info would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

      First attempt at chicken shawarma last night on the Joetisserie.
       
      Came out really good, very pleased with the result and so easy. Juicy, tender moist chicken, with gnarled crispy edges.
       
      Followed Smoking Dad's recipe from his YouTube video.

      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

      So this finally happened today (just a few days short of 6 weeks). 
       
       
       
      Since we’re rapidly running out of month, the inaugural cook also happens to be for the Five Ingredient Challenge.  I was inspired by John Setzler’s SloRoller chicken video so I opted for that method.
       
      Ingredients:
      Whole chicken
      Pineapple
      Red pepper
      Vidalia onion
      Honey
      Wayward Gourmet Applewood Smoked BBQ Awesomeness
      Salt & Pepper
      Olive Oil
       

       
      I did a dry brine on the chicken the night prior.
       
      Finally fired up the grill and set it for 375.  I swapped sides at about the 35 minute point and bumped the temp up to 425, checked on them after an hour and reduced the temp to 400.  Pulled both at about 80-85 minutes.
       

       
      Slow roasted the veggies with some salt & pepper and olive oil in the oven at 350, and finished on the grill.
       
      True to John’s video, the chicken skin was crispy and the chicken super moist.  My wife’s assessment was ‘the best chicken I’ve ever cooked’ so I consider the first round (of many) a success.
