Hans Bachmann: Hey there we just bought 2 of these, no not grill fanatics its just that
we own 2 homes, And we hardly ever grill as we're very busy and this new
one which I got purely for smoking is totally new for us but was on sale so
what the heck we got 2 as our friends had some and they raved about it,
anyway our 2nd home was completed just this year and we have a large built
in outdoor natural gas grill/oven thingy, but no smoker and didn't want
those wood or charcoal based ones as you'll see why.
So pardon the rant but what heat setting do you use for Turkey? I can't
seem to find it anywhere even on Char-Broils site. Any info would be great
as you seem to be the only guy on Youtube with this model that has a
review. Which very good btw.
I work in Fed LE wife is MD (so no grill masters here hehe) as its the
reason why we got this type of smoker etc, she wanted a electric or propane
EG: No direct heat or flames. She is a 20yr+ Cardiologist/Surgeon and knows
all too well the affects of charcoal and wood flames to cook with. Hence
why we got this type for smoking stuff. I messaged you just incase you
don't see this as its a old video. Great review!
Steve Edwards: Gary, I am about to buy a Big Easy and watched a few of your videos. Thanks
for the helpful advice and demo. My question for you is: Would it be good
to pull the drum out and season between the inner and outer walls since the
heat flows in that area?? This would also season the outer layer of the
drum that the basket fits into. I've had many grills that the inside was
seasoned but rust started from the outside in. Thanks for any advice on
this in advance.
Ted H: I have the newest model and I absolutely love it. This SRG cooks the best
chicken and turkey ever! So juicy and perfectly cooked every time. Just set
it and forget it. It's almost amazing for plank cook, especially fish,
since there are no flare ups. I also bought the A-Maze-N smoker tube to put
under the basket to add even more smoke for long slow cooks. Char Broil has
a winner here!
Megan Hancock: nice! would love to see what you are cooking on/in it - looks like you had
some ribs in there- YUM!
Cooking Outdoors: George, mine is the propane gas version. Amazon has it listed but out of
stock. If I can find more info I'll keep you posted.
Bruce Tracy: Gary, Great video...Bruce
Cooking Outdoors: Thanks Bruce!! Is 1 1/2 hours close?
Cooking Outdoors: @megan40207 Megan, You need to watch part 2! It's a Turkey! There is
another video also that shows me cooking ribs in the Big Easy SRG - check
it out. Gary
George Mims: Where did you purchase your electric Big Easy SGR? I've checked Home Depot,
Lowes, and Sears! NO ONE has one in stock! NO ONE!
William Jones: No, the thermometer is crap. Lasted a few minutes then fogged up with
moisture and is WAY off actual temp. What did I expect? Got myself a decent
one and now am enjoying the finest in infrared and smoke cooking. Did a
pork shoulder last night and it was WOW!
Cooking Outdoors: Cool George, I am sure you will make the best of it! Happy cooking!
(Char-broil doesn't recognize us little people, but thank for the support
Bruce Tracy: Gary, Great video...(Are you next to an airport, lol.) Bruce
George Mims: Gary, my Bad, found it in a local Lowes store. It threw me off because it
was in a different box ( just red and white no large photo on one side f
box like yours. Going to pick it up this afternoon, Thanks for replying -
Hey Charbroil should start paying you a commission. You're the reason I'm
buying it! Keep the great cooking ideas coming! Never smoked in my life but
definitely hoping this makes it Easy:) happy cookin!
