Sounds like they may be a newer deal. I was talking with a guy at work who has one and said he rally likes it and doesn't like the oil deep fryers because of the chance of fires.  I like fires-just don't like the price of cooking oil now! I saw Home Depot has them for $95 so I may have to give one a try.

Seems to have good reviews, Amazon has it for $94.00 plus free shipping if you're a prime member.

I'm thinking any meat that you can cook or want to smoke. Turkey, chicken, ham, venny, beef roast.  That's kind of were I'm headed with it.

I own one similar to this, it's called the Big Easy. It's a propane powered  Infrared cooker.  Mine is about 6 years old and does not have the smoker option.  As far as Infrared heat cooking, I love it.  Works great for Turkey and Chicken.  Skin stays nice and crisp and the chickens come out looking like the Rotisserie chickens you see at some grocery stores. 

Here's a pic of the one I have.

How long do you think it takes to do a bird in it, and what was the price range if you remember?

I paid around $100.00 for it, can't remember exactly but that's close.  I estimate the cooking time at 10 min a pound an start poking it with a thermometer after about 9 min a pound.  So for a ten pound bird I would start testing it at 90 mins.

Also, I have not deep fried a bird since getting this, it's much easier, not as messy and a lot less expensive.

Not a fryer if it doesn't have oil in it. Looks like a round convection oven. Any convection oven should give the same results. The smoker option looks interesting though. Not sure if it is in long enough to get a smoky taste though.

Right, but some times an oven may not be at a place like the Deer shack! ;)

I don't have that model but I did replace our regular oil fryer that was used for fries, wings etc with one of the electric air fryers and I use it all the time for wings. I basically just baste a little oil on the wings or use a spray can of olive oil and it takes about 16 minutes to cook a plate of wings from frozen. I think that would work well for birds and be safer.

I don't know what brand he has but a guy that I used to work with had an oil-less turkey cooker and he loves it. I've been thinking of getting one but my wife likes deep fried turkey even more than I do and she's not so sure.....

Menards has the newer big easy on sale for $119.00. Normally closer to $200.00, Menards says regular price is $240.00? It can cook a 25lb turkey. Not only is this one bigger, but you get some accessories with it. I don't know when the sale ends, but I think it's through Saturday.image.jpeg

    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
    • Rock or fish? Look at this one real hard.
