Become a Turkey Frying Master This Thanksgiving!
This past week we had our annual Thanksgiving luncheon here at the studios.
For the past 17 plus years, I've deep-fried our turkeys and this year was no exception. It really is the best and fastest way to cook a bird hands down. It was my first of the season, with many more to come.
I love this time of year and Thanksgiving is one of my all-time favorite holidays.
What's not to like, with all the friends, family, food and of course all the tons and tons of deep-fried turkey. I'm a turkeyholic and never grow tired of frying and eating turkey!
While there are many ways you can prepare and cook your Thanksgiving turkey, for me fried is the very best. Over the years fried turkey has become more and more popular, and for good reason.
It's the fastest, easiest and juiciest way to prepare turkey. If you've never tried it you're really missing out. Think about it, fried chicken is much juicier and tastier than when it's baked, BBQ, or smoked. Which is exactly why we fry it. Turkey is the same way, just bigger.
I haven't eaten a baked turkey for well over 20 years. I will say I still enjoy smoked bird, but it still pales in comparison to fried. Hit play on the video below for a quick 2-minute introduction on "how to" fry a turkey.
It really is super easy to do and incredibly quick when compared to baking or other methods.
The main thing is to be safe, never leave the fryer unattended, and always have a fire extinguisher handy. Just follow the simple directions in the video and you'll become a fry master in no time!
Luckily with the popularity of fried turkey, you can find a decent fry kit that includes everything you'll need.
You can find them at Walmart, Sam's Club, Cabela's, Bass Pro Shop, even Lowe's and Home Depot have kits available to purchase. Shop around and you'll find one pretty quickly.
Same for all the Cajun spices, injectable marinades, peanut oil, and everything else you'll need to successfully deep fry your turkey. It really is easy to do, just take your time and be safe!
