Char-Broil Big Easy - Oilless Infrared Turkey Fryer

You told yourself that this would be the year. 2007 would be the year that you would finally give in to your family's pleas and try...a deep-fried turkey for Thanksgiving. Too bad your cardiologist just decreed a life free of fried foods. There's a happy medium for everyone with the Char-broil Big Easy, which cooks an entire turkey with the same deliciously crispy, caramelized outcome of a regular deep-fat fryer, but WITHOUT OIL. How can that be, you ask? We don't really know either, but we trust the engineers who use infrared technology to perform the magic. Get one early. Never hurts to have a couple practice go 'rounds before the Big Day.
Char-Broil has outdone itself this year with the Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer. I have cooked a couple of turkeys and a chicken in it. The concept is great. No oil. No mess. No fire danger. Only problem with the IR fryer is that it needs a flame control switch. Right now, the 1st gen model on sports ON or OFF. Consequently, if you aren't paying attention, your bird couuld get extra crispy on the outside before the inside is done. Despite that fact, there are work arounds and I highly recommend picking one up.
I have deep fried turkeys the last 15 years. I saw the Char-Broil’s new infrared oil-less turkey fryer at Bass Pro Shop and bought it. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. The skin isn't as crisp and crunchy as deep frying. It takes twice as long to cook. I always cook mine to 190 degrees. Thats checking it in the leg. Thawed it out and injected it. Let it sit in fridge 3 days. Great taste and even moister than deep frying. No oil to buy, uses less propane, quicker clean up, no jumping up every few minutes to check the temperature, and you can sit bak and talk in a normal voice.(Burner is pretty loud with normal cooker)
I BOUGHT ONE 2 DAYS BEFORE THANKSGIVING, FRIED 3 TURKEYS AND I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THE DEEP FRIERS AND I OWN 4 OF THEM. IT WAS SO SIMPLE AND EFFORTLESS TO CLEAN UP.
