I know this website is about grilling, but I just can’t ignore the outdoor deep fryer. I enjoy deep frying whole turkey as much as I do grilling. Especially during the holidays, when the family is in. Nothing beats a cool day, a cold beverage and the smell of frying turkey in peanut oil. Deep Fried Turkey has long replaced oven roasted variety at my house. There is just no comparison when it come to the juicy flavor of the meat and the crispness of the skin. I have heard many stories of turkey fryer accidents. Dealing with 350 degree oil and an open flame should not be taken lightly. Overflows have been known to catch fire. So help keep yourself from being deep fried, I compiled this section of turkey frying tips and instructions as a guideline for enjoying your deep fried turkey safely.
