Ask anyone to describe food prepared inside The Big Easy and "juicy" is the first word you're likely to hear - followed by tender, moist, and flavorful. Instead of oil, the infrared heat penetrates the meat evenly and seals the juices inside. The result is a bird thats moist inside and crispy outsidejust as fried turkey should be.
Turkeys cooked in The Big Easy are prepared the same way as in traditional fryers and can be injected with marinades. However, The Big Easy allows for the use of rubs and seasoning flavor to be used on the outside, which can wash away with traditional turkey fryers. A removable drip pan located underneath The Big Easy heating chamber catches all the birds flavorful juices, allowing cooks to retain the essential ingredients of homemade gravy for further preparation on the stovetop.
A healthy alternative to oil frying, the Char-Broil Big Easy actually does more than just fry turkeysit can also safely cook chicken, pork tenderloin, beef roast and most large cuts of meat up to 16 pounds, all in about eight to 10 minutes per pound. Doneness is determined not by cook time, but by the turkeys internal temperature, which is safely measured using a meat thermometer, included with The Big Easy.
Thanksgiving just got a whole lot easier and healthier for those who love the juicy taste of fried turkey but hate the safety, cost and hassle issues related to cooking with oil. Because its oil-less, The Big Easy eliminates the dangers long associated with the incorrect and unsupervised use of deep fryers. Cooking occurs inside The Big Easys cylindrical, double-walled heating chamber, powered by a fully enclosed propane burner. The turkey or other meat is placed inside a drop-in basket that is lowered into the chamber and cooked with evenly distributed Infrared radiant heat.
We love the juicy and distinctive taste of fried turkey, but many of us have become increasingly wary of the fire dangers associated with deep fryers - and for good reason. In fact, firefighters and consumer product safety experts warn that unattended or improperly used turkey fryers can cause devastating house or deck fires. Cooking oil is combustible; therefore, if it is heated beyond its cooking temperature, then its vapors can ignite. In fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission noted "the majority of reported incidents occurred while the oil was being heated, prior to adding the turkey."The Big Easy offers the perfect safe and healthy solutiongreat fried turkey taste without the oil.
Those who have fried a turkey using a traditional deep-fryer can testify that it is a labor-intensive process. Finding a safe location, buying oil, pre-heating the oil, cleaning up the mess and properly disposing of the used oil is inconvenient and time consuming.
Beyond being a "labor of love" for your family and friends, cooking with a traditional turkey fryer is also expensive proposition. That juicy, mouthwatering, crispy skinned result can put a significant dent in your wallet especially when it comes to buying the oil. Frying with peanut oil usually costs between $35-$40 per use. In addition to the cost, there is the problem of what to do with 3 to 4 gallons of peanut oil when the feast is over. Then the fun begins. Simply getting 3.5 to 4 gallons of used oil from a 26 to 30 quart pot back into a container or several containers is not a simple task. Then figuring out how and where to properly recycle the oil in your community is often a challenge.
The Char-Broil Big Easy eliminates all oil-related issues by simply eliminating the oil, allowing the backyard chef to spend less money and more time savoring the best turkey they have ever tasted. No more oil to buy and pre-heat. No more trying to figure out a safe, easy and way to dispose of 3 to 4 gallons of used oil. Enjoy the convenience and savor the taste!
