    Anyone have a rotisserie for the WSCG? I'm going to try this

    I was just starting to play around with a rotisserie on my Performer right before I got the WSCG. However, I wasn't going to keep the Performer around just for a rotisserie. So, I've been waiting for a good rotisserie option for a year now. Right now, it looks like there are two options either a Spit On Fire for around $350 direct from Holland (and weeks of waiting and hoping it makes it through customs), or a Big Joetisserie and making some modifications (grinding).

    I've decided to give the Joetisserie a try. It's still not cheap, but comes in about $130 less than the Spit on Fire and is from Amazon versus overseas. I'm curious if anyone has found any other options for the WSCG? I'm kinda surprised that nothing else has popped up yet. Until I get the Joetisserie and start grinding on it, I can probably return it and change course, so please let me know if there's something I'm missing.

    Otherwise, I'll update here on how it goes when I get it. Here's what I ordered:

      I haven't looked but I still hesitate getting rid of my kettle because then no more rotisserie. However the kettle is my only other real grill so the added real estate helps justify keeping ol' reliable around.

          If you have the skills to mod the Joetisserie, you should be able to make your own. Just get a sheet of 20 ga, (or thicker), ss, cut to size and either pop rivet it or use ss screws to make the circle. Then add three small L-brackets around the bottom and cut two slots for the skerwer and mount the motor bracket. You might have to make the top a bit wider to fit, but that shouldn't be to hard if you can do the rest.

          One benefit would be that you should be able to reduce the air leakage by making a tighter fit.

            I don’t have metalworking skills or tools, but I do have an angle grinder to take a little off the back of the Joetisserie. I’ve thought about trying to make one many times. If I had those skills I could probably make a few bucks selling a few of them.

          From the very beginning with my WSCGC over three years ago, I have wanted a rotisserie. Always thought about making one, or modifying the Joetisserie to fit. Had some serous discussions with the BBQ Guys Back then about this subject and Weber missing the boat. Now we have the Spit On Fire fellers. Really cool.

          But alas, got too many cookers, and too many ways of cooking to even need one of these things. I rarely use the rotisserie I have now for my ole gasser and I got that one for free.

          I think the modified Joetisserie is the way to go and not really hard. But I do love the new Spit On Fire for what it is. At least they made something to fit both cookers. KJ should have been thinking along these lines to start with, because there is NO WAY Weber was ever going to make something like this for the WSCGC.

          Do it man!

            I know Baby Back Maniac looked onto modding the Joetisserie but decided it was too much work and required skills he didn’t have. He posted a link to the mod on his WSCG video.

              Well here it is. I should have measured some before instead of just after. It’s going to work, but leaks quite a bit around it, but looks like I can hold a steady temp regardless. Took maybe an hour of piddling with grinder, files, and sandpaper. Sprayed high temp paint into an old butter dish and used a foam brush to cover up the bare metal.

                    I did just buy a “Binford tools” Benzomatic 8000 And two tanks of gas for it to light my primo. I felt pretty bad ass with that.

                  I will say, I ended up just shutting off the fireboard, tweaked the vents a little and stayed pretty locked on a dome temp of 400 for 2-3 hours off of a small chimney of charcoal. I think that will cover most things I’m going to spin.

                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
