    Occasionally I see old gasers on CL, with busted rusted burners and grids, but include rotisserie motor and kit still new in box, for under $50.  Just grab one and convert to charcoal.  More real estate too, can do direct/indirect at the same time.

    @Canugghead Search for it on amazon and look for the reviews.  You'll want to buy it...

    THE SECRET of the "OPEN HEARTH" NO SMOKE OR SPATTER The secret is as old as cooking itself ... AIR - Air circulating around the cooking meat allows the meat to "breathe." We call it the "Cool Zone" method. It gives steaks, hamburgers, hot dogs, chops, chicken, and even roasts (when you use the Rotisserie unit) a flavor everyone loves. Remember your FARBERWARE Broiler needs no hood, no enclosure, that tends to draw up moisture and dry out meat. Natural juices are sealed in, only the fat is drained off, assuring less loss of meat nutrients and more flavorful, healthful meals. The FARBERWARE exclusive "Cool Zone" method means smokeless, spatterless cooking. You are hardly aware meat is cooking. You can broil your meat right at the table. Unlike conventional electric broilers, FARBERWARE'S heating element is below the grill, eliminating smoke and heat. In addition, a specially designed aluminum drip tray absorbs and disperses heat evenly, eliminating spatter. EVERYTHING ... from the classic hot dog to a hearty roast ... TASTES BETTER. From The Gallery of Masterpieces 1966

    @paqman , I saw that, and seller is asking over $400USD, your neighbour's 90$ asking price is a steal  =)

  • I'm surprised no one knew about this.  BGE had a rotisserie for their units back in 2003, called of course, the EGG-Tisserie.  Picture shows it on display at Eggfest 2003.  Kamado Mate was the first to market a kamado rotisseries (all stainless steel) that one could use with the hood closed.  It turned into The Joetisserie,  I don't think there is any doubt that a kamado rotisserie has become an established accessory for kamado cooking.  Because BGE has Trademarked the Eggtisserie name (as of March 28, 2017), I'd guess they will be introducing one soon to compete with the Joetisserie.  Just a hunch no matter that they have maintained on their website, that a rotisserie is not necessary on an Egg.Related image

    Hey @paqman someone in your neck of the woods is selling this vintage toy, interesting ...

    This vintage setup was a tradition for many years at my Aunt's house. A tradition that is dearly missed. Always spinning on the counter top with basting brush and bowl sitting next to it. Everyone would baste it when they walked by.
    We are not talking small turkey either. I never would have believed it possible to pull off the size bird that was spun on this thing. The whole house smelled AMAZING!
    We did burn out several power cord/packs over the years but the cooker itself was tough.
    Thank you,

    I WANT IT!!!!

    I had a large 5 burner gasser with rotisserie and gave it plus a KLOS offset away when wife gave me an XL and now have small gasser Q220 and 22 webber kettle.  When I had the rotisserie I used it a lot at first then quit as it was not good for everything and not what I cooked most.  If I wanted a rotisserie then I would get either a gasser with a radiant burner for it on the side to prevent flameups or a webber/rotisserie setup for but I would not use one on my XL because when I would use it I would also like to do the things the egg is better for at the same time. Trying to make the egg into a one size fits all eventually reduce its popularity due to having too much effort to change it for different uses.  The egg plus CGS accessories is a great concept due to not needing to do much effort to get the many great benefits and different cooking techniques.

    Your logical and rational explanation makes me illogically amd irrationally want one even more!

    Meh. Honestly it sounds like yet another gadget that was designed to fix a problem that doesn’t exist on a kamado style ceramic grill. It’ll be another gadget that won’t be used much after the new wears off and then you’ve got to find somewhere to store it so it can collect the appropriate layer of dust.  ;)
