Cook times in The Big Easy® Oil-less Turkey Fryer will vary depending on outdoor weather conditions and the weight of your turkey. In general, you can expect roughly 10 minutes of cook time per pound.
Directions
15 Minutes for Prep, See Ingredient Tip for Cook Time
1
Remove turkey giblets and the neck from the turkey. Rinse the bird thoroughly, and pat the turkey dry using paper towels.
2
Brush the skin of the turkey with Canola oil.
3
Mix the melted butter, chicken stock and bourbon together. Inject the marinade into each breast and leg of the bird using a marinade injector.
4
Place the bird breast side up inside the cooking basket. Then, place the basket into The Big Easy® Oil-less Turkey Fryer. Turn on the cooker to medium high, cooking to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit in the deepest section of the breast.
5
Remove the basket from The Big Easy® Oil-less Turkey Fryer, and let the bird rest for 10 to 15 minutes before taking it out from the basket.
Hot Tip: Use the drippings from the drip tray for gravy.

    Umm the recipe for the rub looks great! But the recipe doesn't tell when to apply it? I assume it's after the injection right?

    It does not say in recipe when to apply dry rub. I"m assuming after you inject it, but it would be helpful for recipe to say when.

    For those asking about the rub, it's easiest to add it after step 4 (after itsin basket). This way you don't lose the seasoning while trying to fit it in the basket.
