Product Description

Amazon.com Product Description

The Char-Broil Big Easy oil-less infared turkey fryer represents the next step forward in utilizing infared style cooking. This patented technology takes the mess and hassle out of cooking a perfect turkey (up to 16 lbs.) or other large cut of meat (chickens, pork tenderloings, or beef roasts). With no hot cooking oil to purchase, splatter, or dispose of, the Char-Broil Big Easy is the delcious, safe and easy alternative to oil-fried turkey. Cooking is done inside a double-wall cylindrical cooking chamber, powered by a fullly enclosed propane burner. Char Broil's patented Heat Wave infard technology delivers juicy, crisp, flavorful results every time. Your favorite marinades can be injected and even dry rubs and sauces can be used for added flavor.

Delicious

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 that’s moist inside and crispy outside—just 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 bird’s 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 turkeys—it 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 turkey’s internal temperature, which is safely measured using a meat thermometer, included with The Big Easy.

Safe

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 it’s oil-less, The Big Easy eliminates the dangers long associated with the incorrect and unsupervised use of deep fryers. Cooking occurs inside The Big Easy’s 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 solution—great fried turkey taste without the oil.

Easy

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!

The "Big Easy" lives up to its name.
In the short time that we have owned this piece of equipment We have done a 16lb. turkey, two 7lb. chickens (not at the same time, two boneless pork loins (one at a time), a standing rib roast (4 ribs) and a pork butt. All were great.
We are experimenting with mounting shelves that can be adjusted to different levels by using the basket structure to support them. We have baked 4 sweet potatoes on a shelf (its a stainless steel cooking grate from a previous vertical smoker) we just cut it down to fit the diameter of the basket. Fixin' next to try Bar-B-Q cabbage on the shelf while the meat is in the bottom.
If I could figure a way to have it clean itself I'd give it a five star rating.
It will never replace smoking but it sure is a lot faster and easier.
I don't have to split the wood like I do for smokin'.

Updater after 10 months of use.
I felt that this cooker was worthy of minute of my time to offer an update about it.
I do a great deal of outdoor cooking all year long. I cant think of anything I haven't cooked on this unit. It has all been excellent. (Oops, I just thought of something. The briskets still get done in the smoker and that ain't gonna change. It takes 2 days prep and 24 - 30 hrs of smokin' @ 180 - 200 deg.)
I have been using metal skewers that are cut to the diameter of the cooking basket plus 1" so they rest on the rungs of the basket. I have hung ribs, multiple pork loins, multiple beef roasts of various cuts and use an electronic meat thermometer with two probes to monitor the progress. When I do multiple chickens I use the skewers just to balance them in the upside down (tail up) position.

I have never owned or used a turkey frier. I am very safety minded and the thought of all that peanut oil at a high temperature and the open flame, well I just cant bring myself to buy one. I did, however purchase the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Infrared Turkey Fryer. So far in three weeks I have cooked three turkeys. Since I have never used a real deep fat turkey frier, the operational part of my review of the product is a bit one-sided. I can say that of all the appliances that have more than 2 moving parts, the ease of operation of the Big Easy is just that. Big and easy. The three turkeys I have cooked in the cooker were just under 12 pounds. The first was rubbed with olive oil, it was delicous and moist but a bit dark on the outside. The subsequent 2 were rubbed with peanut oil and had a better complection, but were just as moist and flavourful. I did experience a bit of overcooking of the drumsticks and wings. I believe that this could be cured by sheilding them with some aluminium foil (that will be my next experiment). I have yet to cook anything but turkeys, when I do though, I will make an addendum to this review. All in all, I am pleased with the product and highly praise its ease of use and safety in producing a nice fried turkey. My son is a proffesional Chef and agrees that my terminology is correct, oil has been used and as he states, "technically Dad, it is fried, but not deep fat fried" Thats ok by me.

Where I live, people rave about fried turkeys. I've never had the chance to taste one, so I decided to buy a turkey fryer and give it a try. However, I had concerns about the safety of turkey frying, plus the health issues of frying in oil, plus the expense of buying all that peanut oil, plus disposing of the oil...so, when I saw the Big Easy Oil-less fryer, I went for it.

I have to admit, I was skeptical. I really wanted to taste fried turkey and I didn't see how a device which appeared to be more of an oven could fry my turkey without oil. Well, today I cooked my Thanksgiving turkey and I have to say we were blown away. Crispy on the outside, moist and flavorful on the inside just doesn't even begin to do justice to describing this turkey. I still haven't tasted an oil fried turkey, so I can't say if this turkey tasted the same, but I can't imagine any turkey tasting better. My husband raved about it long after the meal was over. He was not too happy about my spending money on a turkey fryer, but after he tasted the turkey, he decided I "did good." He is already talking about cooking a turkey when his sister comes to visit next spring.

Once put together, this appliance couldn't be any easier to use. You hook it up to the propane tank, put the turkey in, turn it on, and wait for the meat thermometer to get to the right temperature. No turning or basting.

I had to do a little finagling because I had already bought a 21 pound turkey. The maximum is supposed to be 16 pounds. It did fit in the basket, though, so I gave it a go. The top of the cooker is open and it was cold enough to be snowing (remember, this is an outdoor cooker). Because the turkey was so large, the end that was up wasn't getting cooked enough.

So, I bought a turkey and my husband's work gave us a free one. We don't really like a lot of turkey and wanted to do something different with the 2nd turkey. After asking around at church for someone who was deep frying a turkey, a friend mentioned he was going out of town and we could use his Big Easy. It was a gamble because he had never used it. Best gamble I've ever made. My husband 'injected' it with a cajun butter mix he found on recipezaar or something like that. We bought a cheap injector at the grocery store. It was super easy to assemble and get the bird into the grill. And easy to get the bird cooked and on the table even easier to get it eaten up. The dark meat was a little overdone, but our one die-hard drumstick fan was converted to the light side....so to speak. The Big Easy put my oven bird to shame (it was moist and wonderful tasting until you had a taste of the other) and will make Thanksgiving a cinch and, even better, no more headaches!!! I'll have my husband outside cooking the bird and I'll have an empty oven to do the rest of the meal.
