Big Easy - Perfectly Named
Comments about Char-Broil The Big Easy Tru-Infrared Oil-Less Turkey Fryer:
Just purchased for Canadian Thanksgiving. Seasoned the unit as per instructions. I used canola oil, 2 sessions about 25 minutes each and I had a beautiful bronze cooking surface. Rubbed a 13 pound Turkey with olive oil, then seasoned with smoked paprika and salt. Pre-heat the unit for 10 minutes, dropped in the Turkey and cooked for 2 hours until meat thermometer read 170 degrees in both breasts. AWESOME, Brown crispy skin, juicy meat with fabulous taste! See for yourself, this really is EASY! Oh and I coated the basket with canola oil using a paper towel, bird didn't stick, clean up easy. Last thing, drippings made a fantastic gravy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So good I bought the Larger One
All the food was so good cooked on it that I bought a larger one. I gave this one to my son that is enjoying it. Best grill I have ever owned.
Used for turkey on Thanksgiving bird was very good. Way to time consuming trying to find recipes especially approximate cook times. Would not buy or recommend
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The best ever...

I was looking for a turkey fryer online about 3 months ago when I found The Big Easy. I have used it at least once if not twice every weekend. Its an excellent alternative to unhealthy frying, and the results are a refreshing change from everyday barbecuing. Its a revolutionary way to cook and each usage I get increasingly better and creative. We love the results from our Big Easy. So far we've cooked pork ribs, sockeye salmon, beef ribs, chicken, roast beef, and grilled hamburgers, and corn in the husk. The meat is fantastic, smoked and cooked evenly once you learn how to regulate the heat. Saving the juices and making gravy is something my family enjoys, and its also something you cannot do with a deep fryer. I haven't done a turkey yet, but when I do, I will start the bird on high heat for a spell, then turn the flame down, be patient and enjoy 2-3 beers while she turns into a juicy, golden brown bird. Once in a while I'll pop in and baste her in her own juices from the collecting tray I've had a lot of fun experimenting with the smoke or no smoke dishes too. I found that chicken is best just with a light rub. I cant believe how juicy the meat is, and how healthy it is to eat - without deep frying! I would highly recommend this cooker, and I would not hesitate in buying another one. Simply fantastic!!! Gotta go now - Man am I ever hungry :)
Char Broil Turkey Fryer is a great product.

I got this as a gift about 8 months ago, It works great, I have done turkeys, pork loins, and pork butts for pulled pork. Every thing came out to perfection.
excellent cooker but needs to be tweeked
The product is really good and i never had a bad turkey yet. Raves everytime and called the best turkey they have ever eaten. Only problem is when you drop the bird in the cage it slumps over making it hard to get the thigh area cooked all the way through. So i pierce the leg and thigh area where the blood would normally gather and i shove a large skever from one side of the rib cage to the other sticking out enough to catch the sides of the turkey basket but not enough to touch the sides. I then center the turkey keeping its rump from touching the bottom. I line up the cavity opening with the hole in the bottom of the fryer so all the juices go into the tray below for making gravy. A 24 hour brine , no salt butter under the skin and the bird coated in olive oil gives an extremely crispy skin and an absolute tender bird. Little bit of fresh cracked pepper on the outside is all you need.
We love it.
Purchased for my husband. We put it together within minutes. Seems to be very well constructed. Had family over to try it out and we cooked a hen. It was beautiful and tasted very good. Was extremely moist. I generally do not eat any white meat as I find it very dry, but this way of cooking leaves all of the meat very moist and delicious. Family is coming over again and can't wait for us to cook ribs. Can't wait to try it. Clean up was so easy.
Love the grill, features, results, etc. Hate the fact that after only 1 1/2 years it's rusting. And this is after taking very good care of the grill ... resting on bricks, bought one of your not so inexpensive covers, stored covered in an enclosed porch for the winter, etc. Would be very reluctant to purchase another Charbroil Grill.

Years of great cooking Boston butts to turkeys thermometer in and walk away easy cleanup just put lid on for ten minutes good to go
I've only had the Big Easy for a couple of weeks but it has performed FLAWLESSLY.! After you get your meat ready and into the Big Easy, all you have to do is wait for a perfectly cooked turkey! I've also done chickens in it, and all I get from the family is: MMMMMM! This thing is awesome, the whole family is impressed!
