It seems to be more of a get together than anything else to me. I've had them but they are not worth the effort and the oil costs more than the turkey.

Bill is right. Big mess too. Let somebody fry it for you, and ask that your turkey be fried last. It'll be tastier that way.

my son-in-law used to fry one every thanksgiving at our house (could be a heck of a mess, costly oil, have fire extinguisher handy), he switched to the oil-less fryer a couple years ago, much less mess, no oil, tasted about the same, just took a little longer to cook (I think). I believe it uses heat wave infrared technology...

Academy has them for about $100 ...

the oil will get plenty of use throughout the year, not worried about that. Plan on using my crawfish setup.. just wondering about the prep and other details.. injecting, seasoning, temps, any tips anyone might have.. not asking for your hunting spots here, just trying make the Mrs happy!

We don't do it all the time but fried turkey is really good. It doesn't get the oil nearly as dirty as frying fish etc, so it is easy to reuse the oil. Inject with whatever you want season an rub with mustart and let come to room temp before frying.

put your turkey your going to cook in the pot you are going to use fill it to where you want it when hot with water then take tukey out and make a mental note or mark pot, that mark is how much oil to put in the pot. Dunk turkey slow, do it outside, you are likely to get a little splatter on the ground.

If you do fry, move out in the yard so you don't burn the house down.

I do a couple for thanksgiving and again at Christmas. my family loves them. I just buy the Tony Chacheres kits from academy. usually do one reg. and one spicy ( my own peppers and hot sauce and such) to the last one. usually like 2-2.5 mins/lb. and yeah, don't do it in the garage, we usually do it in the barn. also there are a million and one ways to flavor, rub, inject, marinate. as stated, I love to do it because its gets the guys all together BSing and beer drinking. best of luck.

I usually fry and smoke a couple every year for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas, plus a few here and there throughout the rest of the year. Injected and fried is my favorite, I crave that seasoned crispy skin. food
Anyway, yes a little common sense goes a long way frying turkeys. Do it away from the house just in case. I inject with a Tony's marinade as well, I like to add a little cayenne to at least one. Rub liberally. You can cook anywhere from 350-400 degrees, I usually cook at 350 and go 3 minutes/lb and maybe a little extra to crisp it up a little more. Use a meat thermometer when you're getting close. Don't over fill your pot with oil, mentioned above is a good way to test how much oil to use. You can strain and re-use your oil many times if you want so it pays for itself. Just make sure the bird is dry when it goes in and put in in SLOW. I recommend gloves. I used to fry my turkeys with the neck side up, if you do the oil will shoot out the hole a little so be careful. A few years ago I started frying with the butt side up and that's how I cook them now, less splatter that way and no difference in the outcome. Let it rest before carving. Hmn...seasoned, juicy, crispy fried turkey.....now I want one. grin

skinnerback nailed what I recall when my SIL used to fry with oil ... oil at 350*, 3-3 1/2 minutes per pound, inject with Tony's injection marinade including legs & thighs ... be sure turkey is completely thawed, pat dry, rub with spices to your liking ... ya'll are making me hungry for fried turkey now

Couldn't get my mind off of fried turkey, so made a run to the store. I love the wings and legs so picked up a package of each, (just cooking for me).
Seasoned and ready to go.

In the pot.

Finished off nice and crispy. Pour on the hot sauce and get after it. They're like chicken wings, only bigger.

Since it's No Job November at the Casa de Skinner, guess I'll make two meals out of the wings. grin Will throw the drumsticks on the smoker another day, if I don't fry them too. food Thanks for lookin'.

I guess I'll have to do a few test runs like skinnerback here and try some different seasoning combos!

I just used Slap Ya Momma's. I normally use that or Tony's, they are my favorites on poultry.
