  • The Char Broil Big Easy Infrared Smoker, Roaster, and Grill takes the next step forward from our successful and award winning Big Easy by expanding on the cooking function and capability. Just like the Big Easy, there is no charcoal or oil needed. There is no spit rod to balance. There is no flare up because of the infrared cooking system. This multi-faceted grill includes an internal smoker box which uses wood chips or pellets without the need of air dampers or a messy water pan. It works as a roaster with even infrared hat and easy drop-in loading without heat loss or traditional rotisserie hassles. Lastly, it also works as a grill...using a premium stainless steel grate designed to cook evenly without flare-ups that can burn your food. As for the details, the highly efficient infrared cooking system operates from 9K BTUs to 18K BTUs depending on the setting. You can fit up to a 25 lb turkey in the cooking basekt that also has double stack cooking capability for smaller foods. The 180 sq. in. stainless steel grilling grate and half pound capacity stainless steel smoker box round things off. The overall design features a porcelain coated hood and cool-touch handles for a solid and durable construction.

    Pros - great slow cooker
    Cons - bad smoker
    great slow cooker and roaster.Icooked pulled pork on this turned out great.ITS ALMOST impossible to get smoke flavor from this cooker tho smoke box is to high.The box is above the meat  so hardly no smoke flavor gets to the meat.the only other draw back is the basket.These are the only big flaws with this cooker.

    Pros - well made, multi function - best cooking tool on my deck!
    Cons - takes a bit of practice to smoke adequately
    This is a home run product!

    Extremely versatile - it's first and most obvious use is to be a "turkey cooker" as it comes with a basket and it has the overall shape of a turkey fryer..( But that description alone  omits it's other talents.)

    This thing will give you the best , cleanest, safest - nearly "deep fried" turkey you ever had! It will handle a turkey up to 25 lbs. So - capacity is great.  It uses infra-red to cook so the  heat distribution is excellent, and the skin will get nice and brown - like a fried turkey. But - NO OIL to have to deal with, buy, clean up after - or dispose of.

    It has an on board ignition, via twist knob, and temp adjustment as well.  On high - this thing will cook a 6 lb. roasting hen in 45 minutes! On low - you can cook  your ribs  until they are fall of the bone tender - then lay them on the stainless grill plate - which come swith the SRG - for glazing or finishing.

    Ribs, chicken, wings, vegatables.....even breads can be baked in it.!

    This is the most multi-talented item I have in my arsenal of outdoor cooking gear. GREAT value!

    I just bought one and im in love with mine it is infrared and cooks perfect no hot spots get in on low and every 45 min refill smoke chip box with remote temp sensor no need to go look I just wait inside till it beeps its at temp ,ribs are the juiciest ive ever had anywhere got it for $150 on hsn worth double that

    dont get me wrong it is a good grill, but as far as smoking it is just Ok, that littleflask only hold about 2 cups of chips, the instructions say fill the chip box and turn the grill on High,let it start smoking (aboutn30 min)then turn it down. you get a hint of smoke in your food. but when it comes to grilling it Rocks, you can put whole chickens on the rack and basically set it and forget it.

    I am confused. More than one review has said this "smoker" is not really good at smoking meat. What makes it great?
  4. rpjbenn01
    I have one of these and love it, although when it comes to smoking it really does not smoke that well, maybe I have not got the hang of it yet ,as far as frying a turkey, it took me 3 hours to IR fry one and I should have gone another 30 minutes the taste was Ok I still prefer the oil . but for grilling and broiling it is great.
