K35021 - Char-Broil Big Easy Electric 2-in-1 Infrared Smoker &Roaster
Very happy with it.
We always wanted to get a smoker, and decided to go the electric route with this one. Have used it 3 times so far, and everything has turned out wonderfully! Did a turkey, pork roast, and ribs - we are hooked! We also bought the bunk bed basket on another site to hold extra pieces of meat. Cleanup can be tedious, but the food turns out so good it's worth it.
Wonderful & Easy!
I love this Big Easy. My father has been using a propane Big Easy for years. When I saw this electric smoker I had to have it. Cooking is so easy and fast! I made pork ribs and they were the best ribs I have had! This is a great buy for anyone who like the taste and quality of deep frying without any hassle!
very happy with purchase
I am pleasantly surprised with this product. I am single, thinking it would be too much trouble to make just enough for one and I could not have been further from the truth. I have smoked several different kinds of meats, and even the lean cuts turned out moist. I have also smoked potatoes yum!!!!
Our BEST QVC purchase yet!
My husband and I bought this smoker/roaster just a couple week ago. We've already roasted a turkey breast, and it was the juiciest and most tasty turkey we've ever made! We've also smoked salmon, beef roast, prime rib, tenderloin, pork chops, and country style ribs... every single thing we've tried has tasted excellent! We followed the guidelines in the booklet include with the smoker and have used the recommended settings and cooked to the recommended settings. Nothing has been over or under cooked...just perfect! If you follow the directions with seasoning the pot and rubbing it with some oil, clean up is a snap every time. The autoclean function is outstanding. Overall, we LOVE this smoker and are sending one to my inlaws for Christmas this year!
I received the Big Easy, cooked the best turkey ever. When I went to use it the second time it would not heat up. QVC replaced it and the new one is working great. I have cooked smoked pork roast and chicken with corn in the cob and potatoes, a huge success!
Love my new big easy. Already bought some rib hooks and an extra basket from Char Broil. Looking forward to Thanksgiving to share with my family...... :)
Wow, I was so thinking I would have the same kind of experience that everyone else did. I was looking forward to using this with great results. I am very disappointed, sad to say. I roasted 2 whole chickens, one was done (but still stuck to the bone, not falling off like I can do in the oven), one took another hour and was still a tad bloody on the bone. I roasted 2 pork loins, 1 turned out good, 1 was very dry, and I did them both the exact same way. I thought having an internal thermometer would insure accurate cooking. No good luck with tri-tip either. I'll stick to BBQing.
We ordered this item thinking it might be "OK", but man were we pleasantly suprised at how easy it was to use, no assembly required other that putting on the handles and how amazing the food was. We roasted a 6 lb. chicken in just under 3 hours and it was hands down the best roasted food we've ever had!! Juicy, tender and the skin was a perfect crispness and golden color. Delicious!! Plan to use this alot more in the near future and hopefully for years to come.
WHOA BABY... AWESOME!!
My husband and I have never smoked anything before we bought this smoker. It is hands down the easiest to use and the food comes out awesome! We have made many pulled pork butts, roasts, and ribs in here and are never let down. The meat is very smoky... very moist and out of this world delicious!! Do not hesitate to buy this item... you will definately not be sorry!
great smoker roaster
my friend got this and raved about it when he called to ask if he should soak his mesquite wood chips when he buys them.. he used it the first time without using wood chips.
i told him always soak them, never use them dry. he said the item worked great and invited me for a bbq next weekend and will then use his wood smoke chips.
if it is a good item, i will buy one too.
Never smoked before but will be doing it A LOT from now on!! Made pulled pork and it was as good if not better then what you get at a restaurant! Using as a roaster was easy too. The chicken and potatoes turned out great. Cleanup a breeze with the cleaning option. Going to get extra racks to be able to smoke large numbers of turkey legs or roast lots of chicken pieces. Love the fact that being able to cooking outdoors keeps the house cooler. Love the size as its easy for one person to move.
Putting the finishing touches on this roaster was a snap. Finally decided to put it to the test. Cooked a 14 lb. turkey with nothing but olive oil and roasted garlic rubbed inside and out. Inserted the digital thermometer, set the basket inside and VOILA........I'm sure the aroma went through the neighborhood. Couldn't believe how great that turkey came out. The skin was golden and crisp, the meat so tender and the juices flowed with every slice. Can't wait to try other stuff, like my favorite "Baby Backs". Also just purchased a Char Broil Quatum infrared gas grill. They make great products. Stocked up on an assortment of wood chips too. Don't hesitate on this one, it's a winner!
Best roaster/smoker ever
Got my Char-broil roaster on friday.It was a snap to finish putting together, as it was 95% assembled out of the box. Saturday I smoked 2 chickens,6 large potatos, and 6 ears of corn. I love the auto shutoff feather after it reaches the internal temp that you set. The chickens, potatos, and corn came out perfect. The self clean feature was great.
I have several smokers that work great, but I think I am to really going to love this one. Thank you Char-Broil for the perfect roaster, and thank you QVC for easypay.
