Default My first gasser, the big easy

Before this ninja smoked he grilled. Always with wood or charcoal. I've never owned a grill that used gas, and have only cooked on them a dozen or so times. I couldn't resist the big easy for $25 courtesy of Craigslist.



I'm about to do a chicken with it. Any tips on the best way to use it? I was thinking a foil pack with chips near burner for some smoke.

How do yall like yours and what do you cook on it?

You have one? Any tricks? Special prep?

Seasoned the bird with Tony Chachere's creole season and about to drop her in there.

The chicken king says it'll cook more even and faster then kettle cooking. It'll be crisper but won't have the outdoor grilled flavor...just a trade off. I bet you'll like it, if not for just a change of pace.

Seasoned up. I usually do a light coat of oil first but this is my baseline test therefore I kept it super simple.




I just dropped my chicken, oh no.

Default help please

Can a big easy owner help. Not sure it cooking right. Seams weak. 30 min in and it's cooking but not like the u tube videos I just watched. Can anyone tell me or show me a pic of the burner on? When I peeked at it flame looked smaller than I thought it should be. I'm not hearing any sizzle

Thanksgiving will never be the same. It will not replace smoked or fried turkey, but it's so easy and frees up the kitchen that it is irresistible.

A couple of these baskets are indispensable, cook potatoes or a couple of chickens at the same time. http://www.charbroil.com/grilling-sm...-big-easy.html


Prime rib cooks well also. Wrap the cable from your thermometer probe in foil where it is inside the cooker, it gets mega hot.

You are going to enjoy it, that was a killer deal.

"Let's all just calm down and smoke a fatty"

Take your own advice! When you look through the holes on top, the flames are only about 1 1/2 to 2 inches tall. Are you using a thermometer?

I don't think they are that large. I think the temp maxed or at 340.

Seems to be hotter higher up in the cooker. Put the lid on to brown the skin, but watch as it happens quickly.

Good looking puss. Looks like he/she really can appreciate well cooked chicken.

Not hot enough. This yard bird was almost 8 lbs. It's been 2 hrs and is almost done. I may not be the chicken king but I know that means I'm average 325-350. I suspect this thing cooks closer to 400+. Maybe I can clean the burners, help frome the gas ninjas?

You can raise the basket in the cooker 2"-3" with one of these:



I'd recommend the 2" one... I sometimes put wood pellets outside the ring... they smolder but don't burn... The ashes mix with the charred drippings and, after a few months, create and adhesive envied by NASA.

The payoff . I'm no chicken king, barely a poultry prince.



Same as regular 350* chicken. I need to figure out what's wrong here. Oil or butter may have helped some. If all else fails I can bust out the drill.
