    Deep Fried Turkey

    After visiting family yesterday morning we came home to make our own bird. We had wanted to try do the 'bikini' bird but forgot to set it up until after the bird went into the fryer . Here is our deep frying gear.



    At 3:00 hubby started the oil heating.



    The turkey was seasoned and waiting for the big plunge.



    30 minutes later the oil was up to 350 and it was time to dunk the bird.





    It's melting...


    This was as much bubbling as we had.





    Always practice safe deep frying.



    It held steady at 350 degrees which is exactly what we wanted.



    It's getting the lovely golden brown that we love


    An hour after it's initial dip it is done.


    The finished bird


    Food, yummy food.



    Why is it that my kids have no problem spending my $$ at Disneyland for Turkey legs and yet when they are free at home they do not want them?


    I hope everyone had a safe and fun Thanksgiving.

    Re: Deep Fried Turkey

    Looks good, I always wanted to try a deep fried turkey but jsut don't have the means to do it. Only one hour too cook it is not bad either, how big of a turkey was it? I had a 12.28 pound bird that roasted 3 and half hours.

    That's interesting. I've heard of it before, but have not seen it done.

    I've never had deep fried turkey, but it sounds exquisite.

    I had deep fried turkey as well for the first time. OH MY GOD! It was REALLY really good.

    My niece and her hubby bought the equipment and made it. The rub they put on it was awesome, and they injected it with cajun butter ALL over it. Simply fan-frickin-tastic!

    This year the turkey frying went very well and no emergency room visits were required. Dinner is always more exciting when an element of danger is involved. When I fry a turkey and have guests, they get dinner and a death defying show in the bargain.

    The turkey was 18.3 lbs. The formula is 3 minutes per pound + 5 minutes at 350 degrees. Frying time was 1 hour then let it rest for 20 minutes.

    The fire department has not been called due to a turkey malfunction.....so far!

    Take destiny into your own hands. Next time fry the bird!

    Yum, looks delish. My BIL always makes one but decided not to this year. What a disappointment. The crispy skin is the best part.

    I've had it and loved it...but still prefer a slow smoked bird!

    My dog thinks so too, a piece fell while carving and although she usually will not touch stuff that is not given to her, she was all over that fried skin.

    BTW for those of you who do deep fry, there is usually someone on craigslist that will pick up your used oil to convert it into fuel for their vehicles. So not only is deep frying yummy, fast, entertaining, it also is somewhat 'green'.

    That looks good!!! It reminds me of a Gilmore Girls Thanksgiving episode where they deep-friend a turkey.

    We used peanut oil that we buy at Sam's Club. You can use any frying oil that can take temperatures over 350 degrees. It will usually say on the side of the oil what its 'smoke temperature is'.
