So for the first time, thanksgiving is at my house. so inevitably i had to go buy something frivolous to piss off the wife. deep fryer and a fresh turkey it is!

I own both a a propane outdoor fryer and an indoor electric fryer.

Fried turkey is best turkey.

Pro tip is to season under the skin....

Pretty sure I'm going this route this year as well, thinking cabbalas might have the best selections on fryers

If any southsiders want to give it a shot I could probably make mine available. I don't typically cook for turkey day.

We use 2 5 gallon propane heated vats of peanut oil. It takes about 7 mins per pound. Best shit ever

Any good deals on a turkey frying setup? I was going to pick one up so I can homebrew in the garage as well as fry me some turkeys.

The ATF wants their tax cut on that home brew :rofl:

but yes, where do we buy a decent fryer, online? cabellas? I've had the cheaper ones and they don't last long.

1. Lower the bird into the hot oil slowly. No different than the first time you entered your High school girlfriend's virgin ass.

2. Fresh, not a frozen bird

With a completely thawed dry turkey, I suppose these indoor fryers pose little risk vs the outside ones that have flame?

I used to always deep fry the turkey, but lately the peanut oil seems to be so stupid expensive because everyone started deep frying them.... The past two years we've gone back to oven cooking them at the parents house because the price of oil.

I love deep fried, but I'm going smoked this year.

Doing a practice run tomorrow with a small turkey.

Did it one year at my brother in laws. It was super cold that year and a lot of wind. We had it away from the house to not catch it on fire and couldn't get the oil to tempnwith the bird in it. So if it's cold out you may have problems if you don't have a lot of heat and a wind block.
