The turkey fryer!


In case you were wondering how I was able to fry the turkey in my previous post without the use of any oil, this is the contraption that did it.  It is an infrared Turkey fryer from Char-Broil.  I cannot tell you how easy this thing was to use.  All you do is hook up your propane bottle, light it up, and bingo, you are ready to cook.  The book says it works by bouncing infrared heat all around the inside of the round pan.  Being from the South, we are known for frying just about anything and we like to fry in things such as peanut oil or vegetable oil or just straight up lard!  This thing uses no oil, but the turkey came out with a crispy brown skin and the juices flowed from the middle just like your Grandma's fried chicken at Sunday dinner.  All I did was coat the turkey with some of my favorite rub, put it in the basket and lower it into the cooker.  It takes about ten minutes per pound, so my turkey breast took about an hour and a half.

I'm looking forward to trying different things in the cooker because of how easy it was to use and how easy it was to clean up.  Hardly any mess at all.  The book gives directions on how to cook hams, roasts, Boston butts, etc.  If you are looking for an easy cooking tool for your shop or your home, give this thing a try.

**Shameless blog promotion-  If you want to see the turkey that I cooked over the weekend, click on my post entitled "Weekend Work!"  Scroll to the bottom.
