One other thing to add. Before you start filling up the pot with oil, use water first with the turkey in the pot so you can figure out the right amount of oil to use. There's nothing worse than filling the pot with too much oil and you can't put the turkey in cause it boils over. Then you have to dip the oil out and find a place to keep it while it cools down. I have two marks on the inside of my pot. One for a 11-12# bird and one for a 18-20# bird. Of course they're only scratches and I have to look real hard to find them each time.

And remember, long pants and long sleeves (leather shoes and gloves are a given). That hot oil will pop on you and it doesn't feel too good on uncovered skin.
