Yes, it is. But not awesome enough to sit through a 12 minute video about it.

He's right. You should just wing it. How hard could it be? And besides, you know how to grill stuff and that's practically the same thing. Why are you still reading this? You should be deep frying a turkey RIGHT NOW.

It's awesome. You can do it right on top of your kitchen stove.

/as long as you move your stove outside first and don't mind it possibly burning up

Protip: Make sure the turkey is frozen before you deep fry it. Also, fill the fryer up with oil all the way to the top. Then drop the frozen turkey in!

You had me at deep fried.

You should also be wearing as little clothing as possible when you do this. You don't want turkey grease all over your good thanksgiving dinner clothes.

Proper turkey frying attire: nylon track suit.

I like to do mine inside my garage. I just clear a little space out next to the car.

Ah, the coward's approach. Real men shoot the turkey into the fryer from about 10 paces. An hook shot demonstrates true ability.

Someone with true grit slam dunks the turkey into the fryer. Show your virility in front of the tribe's females.

Voiceofreason01: Deep fried turkey is farking awesome


I'll catch hell for this, but it wasn't that good.

Two years ago, we deep fried a turkey in peanut oil. We also roasted one in a convection oven.

The consensus was that roasted was better. The fried turkey was edible, but nothing special.

Well, I might try this in Christmas, being a dirty 'ferner and all.

/But, really?

You're confusing that with New Year's. We do standing rib of WalMart worker on New Year's with a side of sauerkraut and apple sauce.

I usually serve my prime rib with onion rings and creamed garlic and potato mash. Add a side of green bean casserole, and you're there.

Came for the turkey covered in batter, left disappointed.

Batter? I barely know her!.

It's amazing that Buckyballs are banned but turkey fryers are not. Both are toys for adults, both can do tremendous harm to children of negligent parents.

Just because you can fit a baby in a deep fryer does not mean you should. Turkeys only!

CSB Time -- I filled up our pot with water today (to see how much oil is needed), and thank goodness. There was a small fissure in the pot and it was dripping out water. If that was oil over the flame, I would have been a Fark story tomorrow.

Also I'm glad Walmart was open so I could get a replacement.

I'm planning on doing a variation of this approach.

I'm setting up my deep frier in the living room, drinking a fifth of 151 beforehand, dropping a frozen bird into an over filled frier and adding copious scoops of courtney love's pap smear scrapings for that something 'extra special'....

/mouth watering

Just had it for the first time last night. It was delicious, but... the juciness just felt, well, wrong.

Not wrong in the 'it's stopping me from enjoying this', more like 'this is not the same as traditional thanksgiving'. The texture was different, the color too. It was so juicy that it felt like it was trying too hard, if that makes any sense.

So, tasty yep, but a bit over the top. I think I still prefer brining for 24 hours then roasting in the oven.

Nobody puts baby in canola.
