11/29/2013I purchased this approx. 1 month prior to Thanksgiving. I've never made a turkey before in my life. My wife or mother typically make it, but I decided that I wanted to give them both a break. After reading the reviews on this thing, I figured I'd try it. I practiced with an 8 lb. chicken after purchasing it. The chicken was soooooooooo good-Crispy skin on the outside and tender, super moist white and dark meat on the inside. I figured that the turkey would come out the same way.
Onto Thanksgiving Day: I bought a 13.5 lb. turkey. I placed two meat digital roasting thermometers into it-one in the thigh and the other in the breast. I bought these great little Hamilton Beach digital units with 4 foot leads, which made the monitoring of the temperature really easy for me. The thermometer that came with the unit wasn't the greatest, and I really didn't fully trust its accuracy. I set the digital thermometers for 170 degrees for each probe. The turkey took about 2 hours. The instructions with the unit will tell you that cooking time for a turkey is approx. 10 minutes per lb. I don't go by the time; instead I go strictly on the internal temperature of the bird.
The wife and I brought the turkey to my parents' house for Thanksgiving dinner. My dad is the pickiest of the picky (at age 88, he'll say whatever he thinks of the food he's eating, and he's tough to please). He and my mother thought this was the most tender turkey they've eaten. If they feel that way, then I know this was a good investment. This bird was nice and brown on the outside and sooooooooooo tender and juicy on the inside.
Just a few tips that I learned: The lid that comes with the fryer is used to brown the skin, as it reflects the heat back into the cylinder of the unit. The longer you leave the lid on, the browner (and crispier) the skin will get. Also, I put the ring of a 9" spring form pan into the cylinder so that the basket sat on top of that ring. It allows the bird to be lifted from the bottom of the cylinder so that it cooks more evenly with the heat. I read other people's complaints on other sites that the bottom portion of the fryer tends to cook a little differently than the middle, so this pan allows you to raise the basket a little higher for more even cooking. I got that spring form pan (along with 2 other sizes in a set of 3) at a local BIG RETAIL STORE (hint-Wal) for about 9 bucks. Well worth it.
The only thing that didn't impress me were the assembly instructions. The picture for the placement of the heat shield isn't that informative. It shows where it should go, but it doesn't show you the entire picture, which made it a little difficult. Other than that, assembly was a snap.
Also, after hooking everything up and turning the propane on, the ignition dial has to be turned rapidly for the unit to light. If you turn it slowly.....click.......................click..............................click, it won't light. Has to be turned quickly....click-click-click...you get the idea.
Buy this thing...you can't go wrong. If I can make a turkey or chicken in it, anyone can.
