I just fried one last night. Delish. We do about 4 between November and January, just because they are so cheap, and the oil will only last so long.

Here are my two pro-tips (I've been doing this for 10 years):
1. Get the oil to 400 before you put the turkey in, because the turkey will take the temp down 50 degrees instantly. That way you can cook at 350 without having to worry about it getting back up to the right temp.
2. TURN OFF THE BURNER WHEN YOU PUT THE TURKEY IN. Any oil overflow won't catch fire if there is no fire. When the turkey is in and settled, light the burner again. Easy-peasy.

/ I get turkey left-overs this week. Yay me.

Frying a turkey is easy. You have to be a complete moron to start a fire doing it.

I'm frying one and my brother is smoking one next week for Thanksgiving. Can't wait.
