French Fries on the Char-Broil Big EasyI found the cook time on the fries to pretty much match the times on the package, so it’s about as no-brainer as you can get.

These fries would not have been possible without Char-Broil’s Big Easy Cooking Rack. It adds a ton of cooking area to the fryer. And best, you can add 9″ pie pans, giving you the ability to cook a whole bunch of things, like fries! Check out my post on the rack for tips and tricks.

You can also cook potato skins and hash brown patties on the Big Easy.
