News.

Very. Bad. News.

But news indeed.

Oh wait, compared to the news, maybe this is not so bad.

I think that this is interfering with natural selection-it shouldn't be safe to deep fry a turkey...news

I went googling "deep fried turkey" and it led me to recipe pages. There's not a lot of discussion of the philosophical, medical, or even gastronomic pros & cons of preparing turkey that way that I saw, so essentially what we have here is a novelty kitchen item, likely an expensive one.

Advertising.

Where do you store that mini-fridge size beast when you're not frying a huge bird?

It's news if you're a turkey.

It's news. The American consumer had nearly lost hope. But now we may dream of indulging in a big metal box that we can use once and then donate to the thrift store, thereby providing PSP (assuming he has the good taste to buy it at said thrift store) with a new-old place to store all the detritus of middle age.

Frankly, my dear......

I understand the first wave of turkey fryer designs were prone to starting housefires.
A new twist to the holiday tradition of chestnuts roasting on an open fire. ...

As of last Thanksgiving, UL had decided not to certify any turkey fryers, and I'm betting this one has no UL sticker, either, However, as an object with which people can swiftly Darwin themselves, it's highly recommended, along with halogen torchiere lamps and overloaded extension cords.

*sigh* Please make that a full stop after "either" in the above comment.

Fabulous! Now we can burn down our homes with hot-oil fires instead of just causing a huge mess and a few burned hands out on the driveway.

What is up with frying turkey? I started to see a lot about this last year, around thanksgiving. That just seems a little odd to me, but apparently, done right, it's delicious.

Well, duh. It's fried! But still.

Turkey, the leanest meat.

So let's deep-fry it.

Your junk drawers are going to have to get a helluva lot deeper, Princess.

They're talkin' turkey.

Look kids if Martha Stewart can recommend deep frying a turkey, y'all can get behind it as well. That being said, this is something best done outdoors.

I'm from Louisiana, and we have a Cajun fried turkey most Thanksgivings, so I am totally behind the eating of said turkeys. :) But we let the professionals at the local grocery store handle the cooking, and pick the bird up the night before the holiday!

Just for the record, the turkey isn't coated with flour as with fried chicken, but injected with spices. Submerging it in hot oil cooks the turkey while keeping the meat very moist. It's amazingly good.

Jesus christ, how big is that thing? How much oil do you waste?

bet you could fry a lot of snickers in that thing - which means it will be a sure fit hit in certain parts of merika.

Brined turkey for Easter made by my gourmet chef BIL. Can't wait!
