Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
If you have a family member (or heck, if it’s you!) that loves dark meat, I highly recommend making roasted turkey wings on the Char-Broil Big Easy. They take no time at all and come out crispy and delicious. There’s no special preparation required. Just a little oil and salt and pepper. Sure, you can substitute your favorite poultry rub for the salt and pepper if you want but don’t use anything with sugar in it. The high heat of the Big Easy may cause the sugar to burn.
You can often find turkey wings on sale right before or after Thanksgiving. I grab as many as I can and roast them up for making turkey broth. The broth makes for the absolutely best turkey gravy you can imagine. Seriously, I make it by the gallon.

- 6 turkey wings defrosted if frozen
- Vegetable oil
- kosher salt or substitute your favorite turkey seasoning, such as Todd’s Dirt
- freshly ground black pepper
- Fire up your Big Easy.
- Lightly brush the wings with oil. I found it easier to just pour the oil on my hands and then rub them on the wings.
- Season well. Don’t be shy.
- Add wings to the Big Easy basket and transfer to the cooker. Cook for approximately 10 minutes/pound or until wings are at least 165 F.
