No turkey for me...

...we're doing something a little different this year.

Your turkey looks good though ~

Our Thanksgiving Tradition

My brother fills the turkey fryer with too much oil,
Forgets to defrost the turkey,
Drops it frozen into the smoking hot oil,
Sprays boiling oil on the assembled family,
Catches the turkey fryer on fire,
Calls the fire department,
Goes to the emergency room while mom serves ham.

Been Frying Tuekeys before they made the Turkey fryers.

Good Stuff.

Be Careful and you need to know what you are doing!

Have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving.

We always brine ours, before we cook it. This year our friends are coming over with their fryer so we can brine and fry.

If those hotties come with the food, I might be convinced to change traditions!

A number of years ago I also attempted to fry a turkey. I defrosted it as I new the dangers of water mixing with hot oil. I also new not to overfill the pot. That is where my problems began. I only put about 1 inch of oil in the Pan as I thought the directions said no more than an inch of oil (I miss read the directions, at least that what my wife said). Also according to the directions the turkey would be coked in 30 minutes. I waited patiently for 30 minutes, looked at the turkey an noted only the bottom was cooked to a nice golden brown. The rest of the bird was raw. So I gave it another 30 minutes. Now the middle was cooking but the bottom was now a dark brown. Anyway I decided to add more oil but not much more and cook another thirty minutes. I reread the directions again and again again and I will go to my grave believing that they stated add only an inch (the directions were printed in English and Japenese as that where the cooker was made)

Needless to say the bottom portion of the turkey was burnt beyond recognition, it would give the NCIS lab a run for its money, however the top inch was delicious but just wasn't sufficient to feed the family. I am remained of my folly every Thanksgiving

May you all have a great Thanksgiving

Funny story, and what could be the start of a new family tradition.

I also overlooked an important part of the instructions when I started deep frying turkeys over 10 years ago. The part where you put the turkey in very slow with the butt end up. If you put the neck end up, it can result in a spectacular geyser of hot oil. Fortunately, it was a calm, windless day, so the trajectory was mostly straight up, and back in the pot... mostly.

Despite the excitement, we haven't cooked one in the oven since. My secret - 100% peanut oil, elbow length welder's gloves, and a clear path away from the cooker. We still experiment with the rubs and the marinades, mostly settling on a concoction of butter, soy sauce, wine, and a little garlic. But, I still look at frying turkeys as more of an adventure than a culinary experience.

We've never heard of such a thing as fried turkey in Canada.

But Americans have probably never heard of Flapper pie, Nanaimo bars, or poutine either.

Tit for tat.

Beg your pardon - on this end of the country turkey fryin' is alive and well! Five birds were so sacrificed in our loop last thanksgiving (Canadian edition). For our two families we did fish and chips (that's fries for my southern neighbours) on Saturday and dipped the turkeys on Sunday. Great use of the oil and the fryer over two days. Wife has been walking two miles a day since to work off the calories - me, well I'm still exercising my elbow. Jury's out on which method will yield the better result. I'll take my chances on the elbow lift.

Anyone tried those infrared fryers? Have heard that you can cook turkey, pork, beef, whatever in them and the result is like a turkey fry without the oil, mess and heart stopping bad stuff.

Poutine! We've had it from Ontario to British Columbia. My wife was surprised to find it at a KFC, and at a truck stop, in BC. Kind of like my turkeys, it's different every time.
