Turkey Cooking with the Big Easy

You may remember about a month ago we cooked a couple chickens with a Big Easy Oil-less Infrared Turkey Fryer. The results were really wonderful & we promised to try a turkey & let you all know about it. So, a week ago we got a turkey breast & invited some friends over for fakesgiving.

It was incredibly easy to cook the turkey in the Big Easy. We started the day before by coating the 6 lb turkey breast in a salt rub.

Salt Rub
adapted from Bon Appetit

3 T kosher salt
1/2 T dried oregano
1 1/2 t dried lemon peel
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1 1/2 t ground pepper
1 1/2 t dried sage

Then we let the salt rubbed turkey sit in the fridge for 24 hours. When we were ready to roast the turkey we just rinsed off the rub, put the turkey in the fryer basket & were ready to go. Are you ready for our first video....
The turkey turned out beautiful. Juicy on the inside, golden brown & crispy on the outside. It cooked much quicker than in the oven plus freed up the oven to cook other parts of dinner.

All & all we'd say a great way to cook a turkey.
