I heard you'll never eat it baked again. What's the consensus on this?
a. its dangerous
b. its expensive
c. its dry
invest into a clay cooker and have great turkey with little trouble....
but i do not care for the fried turkey
but do be careful.....look at youtube for how to do it safely....involves a ladder....lol
i think people who say how great it is...are just to ashamed to admit they wasted money, oil and turkey.....
I'm doing it out on the patio, its supposed to be warm on thursday, like 60's. And my buddy tells me he's got the dry issue covered. It's a fine line between done and moist, and too dry. Like a matter of only minutes. He injects it with spices and melted butter all over which also helps keep it moist.
It sounds mouth watering bones. It sounds like I'm going to have sex with this turkey.

too dangerous.....boiling oil.....spilling oil.....fire....etc
Be cure and pluck and gut the bird first.
I saw somewhere that 150 people have completely burned their houses down trying to deep fry a turkey in the past few years.
This does not count the number of injuries, porch fires etc. etc.
This is just completely burned down.

When I lived in FL a guy down the road had his fryer in the driveway, dropped the bird in and burning oil went down the driveway under his 45K SUV and burned it up
Slow cooking turkey
I've done this.
It's delicious..PLUS one gets to keep one's oven on longer.
Those of you living in colder climates probably understand why I consider that a benefit.
