    Default Finally! Pic's of Turkey from Oil less Turkey Fryer.

    Had a PC crash the night before Thanksgiving. Here are pic's of the cook.

    The Victim A 15# Turkey:



    The prep was clean and cover with Tony's then put in basket:



    The Fryer ready to go:



    Insert bird. Just leave the vented reflector on top until desired browning:



    About an hour in:



    It was so tender, a leg fell off:





    Cook time approx 2hrs and 15 mins. Cleanup was throw away a foil drip pan and rinse lift out SS tub. No oil to buy and mess with. No standing over it. Just cook till thermometer reads 180*.

    I've fried 100's of turkeys over the years and will compare the taste of this one with any. The thing paid for itself in 2 uses vrs peanut oil.

    Next up for Christmas an injected one.

    Thanks for viewing!

    Cool. I wonder what other uses it has, besides birds. At least with a fryer, you can make some onion rings or fries, etc.

    If it burns, I can cook with it.

    Very nice! I saw those at Bass Pro in Denver couple weeks ago and wanted to look more, but wife and kids weren't interested in the cook'n area.

    Can/have you tried anything else in it?

    Nice job, Toast.

    Here's a chicken:



    A pork cut:



    And a roast:



    I think there are better ways to do beef and pork although they taste good. Poultry seems to work best.

    Sounds like the roasting time is several times the time required for frying, and obviously it is roasted and not fried, but so what. Looks like a good bird. do you know what temp it roasts at? It pretty well has to be a good deal higher than the 325 that conventional roasting calls for due to the cooking time.

    Where it will really shine over the fryer is when you inject it. Most injects ruin the oil in one fry.

    Actually it uses infrared to cook. There is just a small ribbon burner around the bottom. No top to hold heat. That makes it crisp on the outside and juicy inside.

    Here's a short clip of how it works:

    Also if you add in the time it takes for oil to heat up to temp and cleanup, it's about the same.

    Toasty looking bird there. Interesting cooker, I've seen them advertized a good bit around here, Cabela's & Bass Pro. Great report.

    I want to see a bird that has been injected.

    I've been wondering how well they worked. Really didn't wonder enough to buy one since I generally don't care much for the whole poultry thing.

    Thanks for the review - looks like it turned out very good
