A few years ago a friend of mine mentioned that her family had decided to deep fry their Thanksgiving
turkey. My first thought was, "Ewww. How gross can you be?" My second thought was, "Well they are from Louisiana, they deep fry just about everything down there."
Although invited, I couldn't attend her family's fried delight but to this day she continues to rave about that deep fried turkey. In the years since then I have heard more mention about this curious manner of turkey preparation. It seems not only is the frying time fairly quick but the turkey meat is rumored to be among some of the most delectably moist pieces you will ever have the pleasure of tasting.
As we prepare for next week's Thanksgiving feast at my house and are tossing around various meal ideas, the deep fried turkey concept is among the top contenders at the moment. From what I have read it sounds intriguing and downright tasty.
Nevertheless, deep frying a turkey requires thoughtful planning and the right utensils. The process for deep frying a turkey is not one to be taken lightly, you are dealing oil heated to 350 degrees. Unless you are a seasoned pro you should follow directions carefully
when undertaking this endeavor.
