Anyone used a infrared turkey cooker, in lieu of deep-fat frying... or smoking? This one is on sale locally for $80. We've already got a turkey bigger than its 16# capacity ordered, so this would be for next year. And even then, we'd likely have to do two... meantime... it can cook other large cuts of meet. One fella I know just did a standing rib roast and some sirloin. Both of which I sampled, and both of which were nicely done. I'd never seen one before, but now I'm curious. Maybe it'd be simpler to just save the $80 and use the gas grill.

I am from the south, we fry everything. My fried turkeys are legendary - fabulous - absolutely the best turkey you would ever want to eat. I normally do 15+ around Thanksgiving for friends.

...Then I bought an "Oil-less fryer", the identical one that you are asking about. That cooker takes turkey to the next level. Buy one, cook in it, you will be not be sorry.

a friend has one of those things. he was a HUGE fried turkey guy until he got one of those. he claims it's better than his old oil fried turkeys. i haven't had a sample yet, but he's a great cook and i'll take his word for it. i plan on buying one soon.
