    OK I already own a Turkey Fryer but I was at Academy this morning and saw this so know I have a traditional turkey Fryer and a Oil-free Turkey Fryer.  I am going to smoke a Turkey and cook one in my new Toy.  I may try a Chicken out tomarow or the next day just to try it out.  It is made by Masterbuilt so in my mind that means it comes from a Grade A company.  List price online $149 list price in store $99 purchase price $59 after 10 dollar gift card I had.

    Wow!

    I just checked out your owners manual !!!

    Up to 18 pound turkey at 10 minutes per pound, without oil.

    Cool !

    OK I just put this thing together and I like it so far.  It is built like a tank very heavy I think I am going to give it a test run tomorrow or Monday with a chicken to see how she holds up.  No way an 18 pound bird fits in this thing but a 14 ponder should not have any issues.

    that looks smaller than the big easy,

     Just pulled my first chicken out the big easy.

     WOW!!!!  This is probably the juiciest chicken i have ever eaten.

    Cooked to 164 and rested  for 15 min. till we couldn't stand it anymore.

    carved and wow!!! The skin is crunchy fantastic.

     Would i buy it again ? so far ,Yes.

     Just put a second chicken on to cook.

    Coming from Cajun Country that is all I needed to hear.  I am looking forward to using this thing.  Did you coat your bird with Olive Oil before you put it in the Big easy?

    Yes i coated it w/ olive oil. I rubbed these birds down last night w/ pig rub and then looking at the forum for the big easy

    i found that they recomend not using a high sugar rub. so i  rinsed the outside ,patted it dry and oiled it

    The second one is my rub no oil just as a comparrison test.

    I thought an 18 pounder was a bit big too, but I think your owners manual says that.

    Maybe they beat it in---Did they give you a sledge with that thing?

    Just carved up the second chicken and it taste better than the first. Skin was allmost black from the sugar in the rub .

    But i have to say this is a great way to cook a bird w/o oil . Smo/fry won't seem to be a problem as long as the cooker is pre heated. The thing will get to around 450° w/o any food in it.

    I am trying mine out right now.  I saw the Butterball and the big easy side by side and they are about the same size.  I injected and coated with oil and sprinkled with natures seasoning.  Will post some Q-view later.

    Very Juicy great bird skin not as crisp as I thought.  I think it could have done longer in the cooker and it still would have been very juicy.

    I was wondering how these would work out when I seen them in the store a couple of weeks ago.  Y'all have me curious and thinking about picking one up now.

    That looks like a neat toy for sure. I have a whole wall in my garage with 5 shelves dedicated to cooking toys so I may have to make some room for one more. Would love to see some pics and a review
