TBE?
« on: August 01, 2011, 10:38:51 PM »
First off....this forum is great.  Already did a brisket with the new smoker and it came out to great reviews and some tastey indigestion.

I keep seeing 'TBE.'  I've seen one in a picture on the forum, but was is it and what does it stand for?

TBE is "The Big Easy" - a Char Broil oil-less infrared cooker usually used to "fry" turkey.  It's essentially a 400o+ stationary rotisserie and has far more uses than just cooking turkey.  SRG (Smoker-Roaster-Grill) is the "next generation" and incorporates a grill plus some smoke enhancement capability.  Check out their forum (here) for more info and uses.

It stands for "The Big Easy" and SRG stands for "Smoker, Roaster, Grill"

I have two of them ;D

THe Big Easy yeehaw. I love mine. It rocks the turkey cooking world. And if you get creative like TMB you can cook "jus bout anything" in it. I have a cast iron dutch oven that just fits on the top and I am going to do some tasty experiments with that. Like baking cakes and bannock or making stews, you name it.
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.
