How to make it

  • The turkey should be placed in basket neck end first.
  • Slowly lower basket into hot oil to completely cover turkey.

    Not a clue, your best bet is to take it's temperature with a meat thermometer. I doubt it would be long.

    What if I just wanted to do a turkey thigh? How long would it take to cook that?

    absolutely inject the bird with yumminess! It's the best. You can also brine it with lots of seasonings.

    I have never fried a turkey, but now I am temted to try it.
    Tell me, would this method work if I were to inject the bird with some type of spiced juices?
    I don't want a grease fire.

    THanks for posting this. I bought my fiance a deep fryer several years ago. I thought ugh, I would hate it. Frying in all that grease. We ended up making it for new years eve, it was delicious! Not greasy a all. Super moist. We can never wait to have this. I ended up buying a high quality fryer commercial size. We love it so much. Dont make it enough. Thanks for posting
