Char-Broil Big Easy TRU Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer
The Char-Broil Big Easy TRU-Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer is the stress-free way to fry your turkey, roast, or other cut of meat. With no hot cooking oil to purchase, splatter, or dispose of, the Char-Broil Big Easy gives you a delicious, safe, and simple alternative to frying with oil. The Big Easy uses infrared heat to cook a turkey from start to finish just as quickly as oil-frying - and, of course, food cooked without oil is healthier, too! Safely cook a turkey (up to 16 lbs.) or chicken in about 8 to 10 minutes per pound, (roasts and most other large cuts of meat cook for slightly longer), as there is no waiting around for the oil to heat up. And because the Big Easy is oil-less, it offers the versatility to cook a variety of items in addition to turkey. Not to mention that there is no hot oil to purchase, splatter or dispose of- resulting in a headache-free, delicious, safe and simple alternative to oil-fried turkey.
Char-Broil TRU Infrared Technology
The Big Easy utilizes Char-Broil’s TRU Infrared technology eliminates hot and cold spots, and delivers juicy, crisp, and flavorful results every time. The TRU Infrared technology takes the mess and hassle out of cooking a perfect turkey (up to 16 lbs.) or other large cut of meat (chickens, pork tenderloins, or beef roasts), leveraging infrared heat to cook the food, instead of heated oil like other products. Because of the oil-less functionality, there is no waiting for the oil to heat up and you can prepare your bird or meat with seasoned rubs or injectable marinades- both of which are not an option with traditional fryers. The fully-enclosed 16,000 BTU propane burners sit inside of a double-wall cylindrical cooking chamber, which generate infrared heat that circles the cooker to penetrate and cook the meat evenly, sealing in juices. The result is a turkey or meat that is moist on the inside and crispy on the outside, without the hassle or added fat and calories of oil.
Large capacity cooking basket allows you to safely fry whole turkeys up to 16 pounds, in as little as 8-10 minutes per pound. There's no waiting around for oil to heat up, and when you are done, there is not oil to dispose of. Enjoy crispy skin and juicy meat, without the extra calories or messy clean-ups.
The Char-Broil Big Easy oil-less turkey fryer actually does more than just fry turkeys—it can also safely cook chicken, pork tenderloin, beef roast and most large cuts of meat. Also works great for both boneless and bone-in ribs, (rib hooks shown are sold separately).
Easy to use
Cooking on the Big Easy is very simple. With only two knobs to control- one to turn on, and one to light the burner, operating is easy to do. And when you're done, it's compact size allows for easy storage.
Also included with the Big Easy is a removable drip pan located underneath the heating chamber, which catches flavorful juices, allowing cooks to retain the essential ingredients of homemade gravy for further preparation on the stovetop.
The Char-Broil Big Easy comes complete with a thermometer, making it easy to know when your food is done, having reached the target internal temperature.
In the box
The Big Easy comes complete with the cooker, cooking basket, basket lifting tool, meat thermometer, quick start cooking guide, cool touch handles, rotary ignition and removable drip tray, (propane tank required for operation- not included).

Bunk-Bed Basket, (Mfg # 5584315): Sits on top of the cooking basket- perfect for adding in a chicken, brisket, or roast.

The Char-Broil Big Easy TRU-Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer is the stress-free way to fry your turkey. With no hot cooking oil to purchase, splatter, or dispose of, the Char-Broil Big Easy gives you a delicious, safe, and simple alternative to oil-fried turkey. The Big Easy uses infrared heat to cook a turkey from start to finish just as quickly as oil-frying - and, of course, food cooked without oil is healthier, too! The meat is always cooked evenly inside of a double-wall cylindrical cooking chamber, powered by a fully enclosed propane burner: Char-Broil's patented Heat Wave infrared technology prevents flare-ups, eliminates hot and cold spots, and delivers juicy, crisp, and flavorful results every time. Safely cook a turkey (up to 16 lbs.) or chicken in about 8 to 10 minutes per pound - there's no waiting for the oil to heat up. Roasts and most other large cuts of meat cook for slightly longer. You can prepare your bird or meat with the same injectable marinade you already use, or you can use seasoned rubs on the outside - which is not an option with traditional fryers. Experience the flavor when infrared heat circles the cooker to penetrate the meat evenly and seal in juices. The result is a bird that's moist on the inside and crispy on the outside without the risk, hassle or added fat and calories of oil.
Top Customer Reviews
My husband is terrible at assembling, so give yourself an hour to assemble just in case. Don't wait to put it together right before you cook!
We made a duck for Thanksgiving and that turned out delicious. We won't be buying roast duck from the store anymore. Making it at home with this fryer.
No oil, just needs your BBQ propane tank. Food turns out delicious and cooks in a short time. Our 13-lb turkey cooked in less than 2 hours!
I have to say, this was a much better experience than I expected. As advertised, from the first bird, it was easier than oil frying and while not quicker with cooking time itself, did cook in approximately the same time from the time of lighting the burners to pulling the bird to cook. Lighting the burners was quick, easy, literally accomplished with the flick of a wrist. The unit also made a _wonderful_ bird, with predictable timing, excellently browned skin and incredibly juicy. It got rave reviews from all who partook in the meal. Startup was quicker due to not having to raise the temperature of several gallons of oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and the timing more predictable, probably due to not having oil that lowers its temperature after the bird drops. The jewel in its crown, however, is that it has a catchment system for the drippings. This allows making gravy from your turkey, the lack of which is a major disadvantage of the oil fryers.
There is still no way I know to make the dressing right without roasting a traditional bird as well, but this predictably makes a wonderful tasting, delicious and _extremely_ moist bird. I can highly recommend this oil-less "fryer" without hesitation. I am very glad I bought it, and look forward to using it again.
TIPS: Get some heat insulating gloves. There are some cooking operations with this thing that just won't lend themselves to utensil use.
The Good: it came out great. No burnt parts. It cooked evenly around the meat. Easy to assemble and start. It is bigger than I thought it would be. Has a heavy and sturdy construction. The meat came out juicy and tender. A plus for me all around. Now I do not have to buy peanut oil for the holidays. So the product pays for itself.
The Bad: For me 10 mins a pound did not work. It could be because of the type of meat. It sucked because I was banking on a 50 min cook time and it took 2 hrs. Oh well the family just had to eat an hour later.
Bottom line: If you are using a traditional fryer then this item should definitely peak your interest. I looked at a couple of oil-less fryers and by far this one was the best because of all the good reviews. Do not hesitate to purchase this before the holidays so you can practice your "technic". To me there was not much to it. Next week I'll be making a chicken to see if the cook time changes. More to come on the construction longevity. I'm sure mine will hold up great because I take the time to clean and put up my toys after every use. I have a 7 year old char broil BBQ Smoker Grill and people still think it's new.
