The Char-Broil Big Easy Infrared smoker, roaster, and grill takes the next step forward from the award-winning Big Easy by expanding on its cooking function and capability. Just like the Big Easy, there is no charcoal or oil needed. It's powered by Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared cooking system, which channels heat evenly and eliminates hot and cold spots.
Between the outer wall and inner wall of this versatile cooker is a fully enclosed, specially designed propane burner. The heated inner wall radiates natural infrared heat that penetrates food evenly and seals the juices inside. The hot air that is generated escapes out of the top of the cooking chamber before it has a chance to dry out the food. The result is meat that stays moist and tender.
An internal smoker box uses wood chips or pellets without the need of air dampers or a messy water pan, while the infrared heat is great for roasting -- it fits up to a 25-pound turkey on its double-stacked rotating basket. It's also great for grilling with its 180 square inch primary cooking area. Other features include temperature control from 9,000 to 18,000 BTUs, a meat thermometer, stay-cool handles, grease collection tray, variable temperature control, and rotary ignition. The Big Easy measures 18 by 24 by 36 inches.
All Char-Broil TRU-Infrared grills generate a minimum of 65 percent infrared heat, which is evenly spread across the entire cooking surface to cook food -- without drying -- at temperatures that range from simmer to sear.
Unlike traditional gas grills that use convective heat (hot air) to cook food, Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared grills limit the hot air flow and use natural, radiant heat to cook food directly without drying. While convective heat destroys food's moisture barrier, infrared heat penetrates it without drying and locks in natural juices and flavors. Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared cooking system virtually eliminates flare-ups while producing very even heat (no hot or cold spots).
