    I had this for the first time the other day.

    IMO it borders on amazing. So much flavor! I will never have "regular" turkey again during the holidays. :D

    Deep fired turkey? Given your avatar, I'm not sure many of us could get our turkeys as deep into the FIRE as you did! :D

    But, my husband went through a turkey-frying phase, and they ARE delicious!

    I tried deep-fried turkey once. Not bad, but my dad wins at smoking and my mom wins at everything else, so I'll take the old-fashioned roasted or the hickory smoked variety any day.

    Deep fried is great, so is a smoked turkey..



    Not meaning to hijack your thread, redhot....

    Butt...
    Anybody here, ever had beer butt chicken??
    You shove a can of beer up it's butt and cook it standing up in the oven or on a grill.....

    Really good and moist, and easy...:thup:

    My father made it last Thanksgiving, it was the first deep-fried turkey I've had.

    This is an "old" thread - but it is getting close to time to start thinkin bout it again. :)

    Anyone had it? Like it?

    IMO is is yucky and a disgrace to our "almost" National Bird! :eusa_eh:

    No! I did not cook this one. :eusa_eh: :lol:

    deep frying turkey can be very dangerous...see alton browns show for the correct and safe way to do it...it will totally make you realize that to do it safely is a major hassele and why go out and buy a turkey fryer? why mess with tradition....hell i am southern and deep frying turkey is off my radar

    Anyone here ever eat wild turkey?

    They're overrunning my neighbood and looking mighty tasty, too.

    In the off chance one accidently falls into my oven, I'd appreciate any recipes ya'll might have.
