Basic Roasted Chicken

I got a new toy oh ay oh (80's song).  Don't you just love wonderfully fun gifts, I do!  Mine? A Char Broil Big Easy Infrared Turkey Fryer.  A ring of fire cooks the meat while a center drain in the middle catches all of the fat.  I would rate it a 9 out of 10: easy clean up, juicy chickens (only thing I cooked thus far), minus 1 because I thought the chicken skin would have a snap crispness and it lacks that.  Chickens cook 15 minutes per pound.  It can also cook turkey and beef.

I cooked two chickens in one hour

big and easy
