Ingredient Tips

High Temp Oil
High-temp cooking oil, such as peanut, canola and avocado oil, is oil that smokes at a higher temperature or smoke point, producing less smoke at lower temps.
NO Sugar
Your rub and/or marinade should contain NO sugar. Sugar will cause your food to burn.


Prep: 40 Minutes, Cook: 40 Minutes

Power up The Big Easy Oil-less Turkey Fryer.

Hot Tip: The Big Easy was designed to be powered ON (all the way to the left) and OFF (all the way to the right). All recipes for The Big Easy are based on operating the fryer at full power.

In a large bowl, lightly coat chicken wings with oil. Then, add your favorite wing seasoning or rub. Set aside for 30 minutes.


Arrange wings across the bottom of the roaster basket and/or hang them in the leg rack, leaving space between wings to ensure even heat. Lower the roaster basket into the cooking chamber.

Hot Tip: To minimize sticking, coat the wire frame of the cooking basket with oil before inserting wings.

Place the wire mesh lid on top for the first 5 to 10 minutes. Then remove the lid.

Hot Tip: Cover the fryer with the wire mesh lid during the first 5 to 10 minutes of the cook for crispy skin, using infrared heat reflected back into cooking chamber. If used throughout cook, this heat can burn food before it is fully cooked.

Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165°F using an instant-read thermometer, about 30 to 40 minutes.


Lift the basket from the cooking chamber and allow it to cool.


Plate and serve up some tasty Yard Bird Wings with your favorite dipping sauce.
