So you have a gift card to burn and maybe you’d like a new addition to your cooking arsenal? May I suggest an oil-less turkey fryer.
A deep fried turkey in peanut oil is delicious, but cleaning up all the oil and grease is no fun. But with a Big Easy Oil-less Turkey Fryer from Char Broil, there is no oil and greasy mess clean up required. The turkey comes out juicy inside and crispy outside. What more could you ask for?
This fryer hooks up to a propane tank and uses infrared heat. The intense heat comes from all around and seals in the juices. It also features a rotary ignition for easy lighting and a removable grease tray for easy cleanups. It is a lot easier than cleaning the traditional turkey fryer, that’s for sure. Plus, a traditional turkey fryer uses 3 gallons of peanut oil – that’s about $40 or more just for the oil. You can reuse the oil, but unless you filter thoroughly, it always has some after taste. With the Big Easy, there is no peanut oil to contend with.
With the Big Easy, a turkey will fry to doneness with about 10 minutes of cooking time per pound of turkey. Take the turkey out of the fridge an hour or two before cooking and inject Creole Butter marinade from Cajun Injector into the breast, thigh and legs. Rub the outside of the bird with spicy Creole seasonings, put the turkey in the Big Easy and you’re in business a couple hours later.
The Big Easy runs about $99 and is available at numerous stores and on-line. If you like juicy, spicy turkey, give it a try.
