Peanut oil is a must with the high flashpoint.
Also before the turkey prep, place in the empty pot. Fill with water until turkey is covered. Mark with a piece of tape. Take out bird and emty water. Dry out and fill with oil to tape level.
Slowly dip the bird a little at a time. I dip a little, then pull out, then dip a little more. Then slowly lower in.
Do this, and never have an oil overspill.
Make a wind block to keep from prolonged cooking times.
Enjoy the juiciest bird ever.
Well said bro...frying turkey is
dangerous, or can be without observing a few tips like above.
Do what he said and you will not have a problem.
