Fried turkey?

Has anyone done this? I've been invited for Thanksgiving dinner,where they're having fried turkey. makes sense though. turkey is SO tuff ta cook!


btw,has John been by lately? This got me thinking of turkey stuffed with oysters.

I love Marie's idea though. It's starting to feel like Thanksgiving! Getting all the Prozac ready to stuff the turkey...

I think deep frying a turkey is the #1 reason for house fires and/or injuries on Thanksgiving. But I hear they're DELICIOUS!

We used to have fried turkey when I was younger and it is delicious, bur it's been several years since I've had one. We always fried them outside though. Fried turkey poolside makes a fun So Cal Thanksgiving.

have had them many ways, my vote still goes for precooking the stuffing a bit, stuffing the bird and slow roasting in the oven so the whole house is filled with the aroma(the way gramma did it years ago,precooking the stuffing is a modern thing) we fry them at our work lunch, but we do 2-3 birds so its a time+space thing

Fried is yummy. Just make sure the turkey is completely thawed. The top reason that fried turkey ends in fire/injury is a still frozen or partly frozen bird is thrown in very hot oil, the water and oil repel each other, the oil meets the heat source, and BAM! disaster is two seconds flat.

my advice, If attending a gathering were they are frying a turkey for the first time have two things
1. vidio recording of the frying event
2. an escape route planned in advance

Delicious and more dangerous than a truck full of fertilizer



The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.
