The Joetisserie is a stainless-steel spit rod accessory compatible with most Kamado grills. In fact, the Joetisserie is available in a variety of sizes to help you find your grill’s ideal fit.

Juicy and tender is the name of the game, which is fortunate considering this accessory self-bastes your meat for a succulent meal. Whether you’re using this tool to create delectable meals for yourself or for a crowd, the Joetisserie delivers. We’re impressed with the hefty weight capacity of up to 50 pounds—that’s a lot of juicy meat. Plus, this lightweight accessory is actually quite powerful thanks to the 120-volt motor, which keeps your meat spinning while you entertain guests.

How to Use the Joetisserie

The Joetisserie is easy to assemble, use and clean. And that’s why we love it. To get started, here’s what you need to do:

First, put your charcoal in your grill basket toward the back rather than in the center. Next, use your fire starters to get your coals going and center the Joetisserie wedge ring inside the grill to ensure a tight seal. After, attach the power unit and plug it into a nearby outlet. Lastly, place the meat on the spit and drop it into place. We recommend using a meat thermometer to monitor the temperature for best results.

Clean-up is easyjust pop it in the dishwasher with no scrubbing needed.

Amazon Joetisserie User Reviews

Wondering what the peanut gallery has to say about the Joetisserie? Wonder no more—we knew you’d be curious:

Customer JohnBoy posted his review on Amazon saying, “Joe meets the Egg. Saw this and thought it might work on my Green Egg. Since then I’ve done both chickens – turkey – and a roast on the rotisserie. All turned out to be the BEST Chicken and turkey I’ve ever grilled.”

Vustadumas is a five-star fan saying, “I have other KJ Big Joe accessories (SLO Roller, DoeJoe) and love them, but I waited on the Joetisserie for years. I didn’t see the need. How wrong I was. This is THE accessory to get. Perfectly cooked meat, every time. Combined with a MEATER+ The Joetisserie is the best KJ add on hands down.”

“Add high drama to your grilling,” says customer William N. Jardine. “This rotisserie is a total game changer from ho-hum grilling and smoking to high drama! Everyone wants a look and starts drooling as smokey flavors scent the air. Even without seasoning this chicken will taste great, just from the drippings sizzling on the coals!”
