You have to do the stuffing in the oven and the gravy from bullion or a package. It is a small sacrifice for the best, most succulent turkey you will ever taste.

To each his own Bob. the gravy and the stuffing are my favorite parts. Anyhow, i must try one of the fried ones, one of these days. I have also heard very good things about them.

Good Luck and stand well back.

If I find the proper pot, you can borrow my gear to try one yourself. You heat the oil to 350-375 and fry it for 3 minutes a pound. Comes out perfect everytime.

You can also re-use the oil a few times if you strain it through some cheesecloth after each use. Since the oil is so expensive (need about 4 gallons) I usually use mine 3 times.

Geez Bob, very generous of you. Man that is FAST!!!!! Outside, no mess in the kitchen. It doesn't get too much better than that. Will have to work on a really awesome gravy and oven stuffing.

Yes, the big things to remember are:

Don't overfill the oil. You can do a test run with water. Mark a line inside the pot and refill with the oil.

Keep the temperature between 350F-375F. A thermometer is an absolute necessity.

Do it over a tarp, far away from the house in case the oil does boil over and catch on the flame.

Use a long pole to lower the turkey in and take it out. I use a broom stick with an hook on the end.

MOST IMPORTANT - Try to remain partially sober during the cooking...........LOL

What kind of oil do you use? Just curious.

Did you ever try making or taste an italian sausage stuffing? It beats any bread stuffing every time.

Peanut oil is the best however way out of my budget range. I use vegetable oil with good results.

Turkeys might be nice at Thanksgiving, but that's about it. Don't need them the rest of the year. We had so much turkey in the States that we prefer chicken now (not at Thanksgiving). They'll have turkey at the All Inclusive in Nuevo Vallarta for the gringos, but their stuffing is terrible.

You might ask Flip at Absolut Fenix... he's done the deep-fried bird for years at the annual Christmas party. 766-1776.

"Smashed while making fried turkey" sounds downright dangerous.
Good luck.

CBob, you might be surprised how many of those turkey fryers are sold to home beer brewers. My turkey fryer has never seen a turkey but there's been plenty o' beer brewed in it. drunk
Turkey fryers usually get really cheap after Christmas.

You might want to find a better spot to do the actual cooking! HA! It does look like a slick setup.

I just lay a tarp underneath to catch any spitting oil drops.

What happens when the tarp catches fire? I would think cooking over gravel might be safer?

CG is just worried about you CB thats all. This looks scary to many including me
and I know and have seen how to do it in a safe manner many times. Hell of a lot
of heat saved up in that pot full of oil. Too much physics knowledge sucks sometimes.

Enjoy!!
