Joetisserie Temp Probe Placement - Need Help


Recommended Posts

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!

I took some of these and drilled holes in them for afixing to the dome thermometer probe and ran the auxiliary probe through the top vent and mounted it along the dome probe.  Was within 2-3 degrees of dome probe.

I don't use a controller that much but I can see what your getting at. There was some posts where they ran the probe down the top vent and clipped it to the dome thermometer. This would give you the repeatable readings your looking for.

      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.

      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

      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!!!!
