Deep Fried Turkey?

Anyone do this?

I just dont cherish the thought of the oven being on for hours. Is it tasty? I was thinking ..... I do think I have an artery that isnt clogged yet, and they sell the rig at home depot.... why not?

I you down southers should have some experience. Give it up! Spill it! Talk!

Re: Deep Fried Turkey?

We have cooked a turkey using this method for the past several years. It is very good. It is quite dangerous with a couple of gallons of oil boiling in your backyard but the results are excellent.

Re: Deep Fried Turkey?

I've wanted to do this for a long time, but never got off the starting block. What do you do with all the used vegetable oil? I mean, the tablespoon of vegetable oil we cook food on the stove is nothing. We eat that right? But gallons of it is different. I don't know what to do with it.

Don't tell me to put it in the bike at the next oil change...I'm serious with this question. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Deep Fried Turkey?

You use peanut oil not vegetable oil. Believe it says it is a one time use. I have seen electric versions out there too.

It is mmmmmm, good. Just be sure there are no kiddies around. Might have to put them in the pot!

Put it in the wife's car at the next oil change

Quite a few of my friends have cooked a turkey this way and they all rave about it. I have yet to try it

MMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Deep fried turkey is awesome! About 3 minutes per pound at about 375 degrees. Marinade/inject the turkey with your favorite marinade and VOILA!

Disposal......you have a backyard, right?

Re: Deep Fried Turkey?

I fry turkeys several times a year, been doing it since way before it became so popular. What do you need to know?

A few pointers:

1) Cooking time is 3 minutes per pound at 365-375 degrees. So, if your bird weighs 12 lbs, 3x12 = 36...you fry him for 36 minutes.

2) Use peanut oil only. Saving the used oil is not worth the effort IMO, so I just put mine back in the jugs after it has cooled, and put it in the garbage.

3) To determine how much oil you need to put in the pot, put the bird in the pot and add water until the bird is submerged by one inch. Take the bird out and mark the water line on the inside of the pot with a Sharpie. That is your oil fill line.

4) Cut away as much skin from the bird's neck area and gut area as you can. This will allow easy passage of the oil through the bird's cavity, which helps prevent violent gurgling/splashing of the oil as you lower the bird into the pot and during cooking. I like to put my bird in neck down, so that the oil has an easier escape up through the cavity opening.

5) Dry the bird as best you can before putting him in the hot oil.

6) Wear cooking mitts or gloves, an apron, long sleeved shirt, jeans, and don't wear good shoes (but don't go barefooted ).

7) Keep children, pets, and drunk family/friends the HELL AWAY!

Anything else?

I have had all three versions. Fried is good and easy. Smoking is a bit better if you use the correct smoke generation horrid if you don't. Roasted rules! More work but worth it and there is nothing like the turkey smell wafting through the house to prime you.

Must obey the sheep dog
