The long anticipated JOETISSERIE has finally been launched. This wedge shaped aluminum frame is designed to fit any 18" kamado style grill. Simply open the dome, set the frame inside and shut the dome. The dome rests on the wedge like frame creating the traditional sealed chamber.
Sunday morning, I decided to do a test run with the JOEtisserie with a 5lb whole chicken. The spit set up is extremely easy to figure out and get into place. I rubbed the bird with softened butter, then seasoned AlbuKirky Green Chile Rub.
With a half a basket of lump charcoal and zero smoking wood, I set the dome temp at 280F and let it run for approximately one and half hours. Then, I cranked the temp up to 375 for about 15-20 minutes to crisp the skin.
RESULTS: The bird was tender and juicy just as you would expect from a rotisserie chicken. My family loved it and already wants more!
Yesterday, my wife and I celebrated our 13th Valentine's Day together. I can't believe how time has flown by.
We celebrated with a romantic trip to Sam's Club, the grocery store and a stop by the dry cleaners. Lame, I know. Then we came home and made a fantastic meal.
Pan seared Chilean Sea Bass over a bed of sauteed greens with a fire roasted pepper sauce.
The sauce was started by fire roasting a red and a yellow bell pepper. These were charred around 500f on the mini max. The skins were sweated off in a ziploc bag, then julienne and tossed into a hot pan with some evoo, shallots, salt & pepper for a quick saute. Once the shallots were tender, I added some fish stock and simmered. When reduced, the pan contents were blended until smooth.
The fish was deboned, it was seasoned with kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and and fresh crushed thyme.
With the Mini Max still hot, I threw on my Finex skillet and seared the fish in a little bit of evoo, plated and spritzed with a little bit of fresh lemon juice.
Finished the night off with some Roses...
My Valentine was very happy. Hope you had a great day as well.
