Making ribs on the Big Easy couldn’t get much easier. I rubbed down the ribs the night before with my no-burn rib rub. The next day I fired up my Big Easy. I decided to coil my ribs so they fit in the bottom of the cooker. If I’d had put in the Big Easy bunk bed basket I think I could’ve cooked two full racks at once. You could also cut the rack in half and hang it in the cooker using the Big Easy rib hooks.

Crawfish Etouffée - Crawfish, simmered in a very simple butter roux, seasoned with a basic trinity, garlic, stock and Cajun seasoning, and finished with a little fresh parsley and green onion. Serve over hot rice with fresh French bread for dipping.
Ever since getting a cooking rack for my Char-Broil Big Easy I’ve been making tons of dishes I would normally make on my grill or in the oven. Like these jalapeno poppers. In no time I can make a big batch of these little treats. Cream cheese, bacon, and jalapeno. The jalapenos get tamed down a lot while they cook, so don’t worry about them being super spicy.

Sure, I’ve made bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers on my Char-Broil Big Easy. A lot of times. And I love them. But not everyone loves a little kick in their appetizers like I do, so that’s when these sausage-stuffed peppers take the stage. The peppers get a nice little char on them. They have a little sweetness to them. The sausages bring a wonderful smokiness, and they kind of ‘pop’ when you bite into them. That’s a bit unexpected. The cream cheese? Well, it’s creamy.

Boy howdy, these Buffalo wings made on the Char-Broil Big Easy came out great! 30 minutes marinating, 30 or so minutes cooking and it’s time to devour some traditional-flavored wings. I used the Big Easy Cooking Rack, which lets you cook on up to 6 different levels, enough room for a family pack (around 4 pounds) of wings. You can also use the standard Big Easy basket along with the bunk bed basket, but you won’t be able to cook as many wings at once.
