We all know the smell of turkey in the house on the holidays, well today I had the pleasure of filling the neighborhood with the smell of turkey by using the The Big Easy Oil-Less Infrared Turkey Fryer. I was very impressed with this thing and since I got it on sale for 49 bucks even makes it better Very Happy

After 15 minutes it was starting to brown the skin.


The meshed top really is not needed


Adding some hickory smoke using what they call a Tommy ring, basically its a cake pan where the bottom comes off and you line the chips/pellets between the pan and sides of the fryer.


After 2 hours it was done, IT was between 170*F to 179*F depending where I stuck the Thermapen.


It is now tented with foil in the oven waiting for us to dig in.


Very moist bird and crispy skin...Yummm

TBE not only gives you the same crispy skin and incredibly moist flesh as traditional frying but you can also -
- use a dry rub without having it wash off in the oil
- put some "savories" in the cavity
- use fine wood chips for a light smoke flavor
- make "beer can chicken" or similar recipes
- baste during cooking

Good looking chow. I've been eyeing one of those infrared fryers for a while, but am afraid if I show up at the house with another cooker, I'LL be the dead meat. Shocked Laughing

I've got one, too. It's kind of the opposite of low and slow, but it does make a good moist bird. You can collect the drippings just fine for gravy, too -another plus over a true fryer. I do miss the smell of turkey in the house, though. But I think I'm the only one who does, so it's worth it.
