I was thinkin of fryin the turkey this year. I useually smoke it for about 6-8 hrs. Can't tell how damn juicy it comes out. Heard the same from frying though and it takes a fraction of the time.

How many of you guys have fried the bird?

I've seen some pretty crazy videos of people setting their houses on fire with those things.. needless to say, I'd still love to try prepping a turkey this way...

I've deep fried turkeys the last couple turkey days. Turkeys taste way better than the oven. More juicy!!!



Why buy?? when you can borrow and no return

I agree with Kona, I was taught by a cajun on the proper way to deep fry a turkey. I'll never go back to putting one in the oven. Deep Frying is the only way to go!

Frying is a little costly but the outcome will pay off! Turkey so good your tounge will beat your brains out!
Just be careful. Don't do it in or around the house!

Turkey is AWSOME deep fried but you really want to send yourself to happy land? Do a Rib Eye Roast in the fryer.........NUMMY Trust me it is very very good.

Looks like we're going tradition this time around. Good news though. I have two turkeys Next weekend after the peanut oil shortage is over, Might fry one up.

What cook time? Someone somewhere said about 5 min per pound. That sound right?

3/5 minutes a pound. Lower it in real slow you want to sear it as it is lowered. About 350 degrees not hotter or you can light up the oil.
Wal Mart has a ton of peanut oil $22.00

I do two thankgivings a year. Both parents live in the same town. I deep fry both of them for both families.

I use cajun injectable marinade and it works great.

Make sure you dry the inside and outside of the turkey, and it's well defrosted.

As sandals said, 2/3 min lbs at 350.

Make sure you don't overfill the pot. Make sure you don't overfill that's how 99% of the accidents happen.

Underfill and add if you have to. Also the heat will drop fast at first then rebuild, so try to keep the heat up.

Also cooking in 30% weather it's harder to keep up the heat.

Good luck.
