Default Yeah, I'm a cheapazz

Bought a Big Easy "Oilless Turkey Fryer" for $25 when Lowe's was blowing them out a few months ago. Been waitin' for a turkey sale to use it.

Bought 2 16lb Jenny-O Premium Basted frozen turks for ~$7.50 each. It just doesn't get much cheaper than that.

Everyone who has one of these BE turkey cookers seems to love em. I need to figure out how to season it before using, does anyone here have experience with one?

I see a lot of turkey in my future for the next month or so.

I had to google an oilless turkey fryer. I haven't see one before. I'd be interested in hearing about the results compared to other methods. Let us know how it works for you.

A friend has one and he likes it. We've cooked several turkeys and chicken wings. We normally inject the turkey with creole butter, rub the outside with evoo and season. Comes out juicy every time.

I have one, its a good tool. I smoke my turkeys and finish them in the big easy, best of both worlds. Don't use rubs with sugar unless you want an ugly bird.

I've always been curious about these oil-less "fryers"

You'll have to let us know what you think.

The big easy is not substitute for a properly smoked turkey, but compared to a oil-fried turkey, you would be amazed. If brined and seasoned correctly, the flavor is incredible, without the oil mess and greasiness of a fried bird.

I've viewed videos of people using them on this site with great results plus there are many on Youtube as well. For $25.00 you can't go wrong.

I'd try it if i could hook something like my Smoke Daddy up to it...that would be pretty cool. If not i'll stick to the good o'le fashion tried and true smoker and enjoy the smoked gravy from the drippings.
