I am not into smoking meat (oo-er!), I prefer turkey as it is. I asked the question to see if any here have deep fried it, I watched a Brit famous cook try it at a Thanksgiving dinner in the US, and he was in raptures over how moist and flavoursome it was.

Indeed. While I'm no stranger to the kitchen, making a decent turkey is quite beyond me. Mrs. C makes a fine turkey, although this year we're going to try draping the bird with bacon.

Grilled turkey leg with herbs and juniper... With a side of baked potatoes and a Greek yoghurt-based garlic dip. But that's more of a summer dish, unless one likes to freeze their arse off by the grill.

This is the video we learned to fry turkeys from- it's great.



A couple'a important things:

Make sure you brine the bird!

Do it outside on LEVEL ground away from your house in a commercial turkey frying rig- $50 to $100 in the US. Don't fry on a deck or anything flammable- on the lawn is ok.

Measure the oil exactly how they guy shows you.

MAKE CERTAIN you pat the bird dry and completely dry the pot before adding the oil.

Enjoy it- it really is incredibly moist and flavorful!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of yous guys!!!

P.S. Don't do without the gloves.

You could always shove it in the oven as well.

Best of luck with the bird!

Here it is Thanksgiving, and your question, bobbee, leads right in to the Annual Freak Brothers Thanksgiving Story. *This* is how you do turkey, baked...

We've done the deep fried turkey at my brother-in-law's house a few times.

3Flushes gives good advice; the internet is full of idiots who use too much oil, try to lower a frozen turkey into the oil, or use the wrong oil and it catches on fire.

Down in Louisiana, they invented the Turducken; a turkey stuffed with a chicken and a duck breast with layers of stuffing in there. I cooked one on my Big Green Egg and while it tasted good, the twine holding it together came apart and the turducken looked like something the cat barfed up. Next time, I'll do one of the rolls.
