How to make it

  • To measure the amount of oil needed to fry the turkey, place turkey in fryer, add water to top of turkey, remove the turkey and the water line will indicate how much oil will be needed to fry your turkey. Having too much oil can cause a fire. The pot should not be more than 3/4 full or the oil could overflow when the turkey is added.
  • Pour peanut oil into a 10-gallon pot. Put pot on propane cooker and heat oil to 400 degrees F.
  • Have turkey completely thawed and dry turkey thoroughly. Carefully submerge turkey in oil.
  • Deep-fry for 3 to 4 minutes per pound and cook until turkey floats to the top. Remove bird from oil and place on a platter or cutting board.

    I bought a kit with a basket large enough for a 15 pound bird. I have seen fire place pokers and cloths hangers inserted in the birds before frying to make for easy removal.

    I have always wondered how you remove the turkey without spilling hot oil everywhere.
