We haven't cooked a turkey in the oven for about 6 years since the first ttime we fried one.
Definitely rub the bird first and then inject. We also use the Tony C's Creaol Butter to inject. AN I think doing it the night before and setting in the fridge is the best way to go.
ALso thanks to KC we now use the fryer to start all our chimneys for the smoker.
Have used the fryer for shrimp boils, deep frying chicken, won tons, fish,
Be very careful not to have this sitting on a wooden deck, the first time especially. You have to get the oil to bird ratio just right or you have instant deck fire on your hands. And will get to see how quickly your local fire department responds to your house. We usually Spread out some kitty litter on the concrete and then set up the fryer. Catches all the splatter. Or set up on the gravel driveway.
Will not be disapointed with the fryer and will have many uses! A must have!
