Review of The Char-broil Big Easy



As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I was sent a Char-broil Big Easy Oil-less turkey fryer to review as well as a Flip video camera to record my experience!  I hope you find the video charming, it was recorded primarily by my 5 year old, he was the only one available at the time, so bear that in mind.

I was really excited by The Big Easy.  All I did to my turkey was remove the insides, rinse the inside and the outside of the bird with water, dry it, let it rest at room temperature for an hour, smear it with softened butter, season it liberally with Charbroil's All Purpose Rub, pop it in the hinged basket and pop it in The Big Easy.  I didn't have to baste, I didn't have to constantly worry about it, that was it.  An hour and a half after putting the turkey in, I had one of the juiciest, most flavorful turkeys I had ever had.  Even the leftovers are juicy!

This look awesome! I'm so intrigued that it's oil-less! My turkey has never looked that brown from just baking it lol do you think you'll be using this from now on?? I might have to purchase this for Thanksgiving : ) great review!

I am so impressed with this! And that you made a video all with the help of your son. He did such a great job! And the turkey looks absolutely delicious! I saw your message on twitter - thank you so much for your support! *HUGS*

The video by your 5 year old is wonderful...I think the turkey looks delish and you were great.

I have seen these in action a few times and I would be buying one if I already didn't have two Big Green Eggs, a grill, and an offset smoker!

They do a good job and produce a juicy bird.

This sounds freakin' cool. I will be looking into this. Can it cook other things too? chickens?
