Indoor deep frying of turkeys-

I'm gonna send this idea to John Markus and it may show up on the next BBQ Pitmasters!

There are indoor rated turkey fryers, and there are specific ways to use them. Personally, I think one of the biggest issues is that people just do not pay enough attention to cooking on holidays, it just takes a moments inattention and suddenly you got problems.

I do Two 14lb turkeys every year I have caution tape set up around where I'm cooking and fire extinguisher and most important advice Don't start drinking until you start carving. :thumb: Also keep the birds manageble they cook better and less chance of boil over.

Bull, I have fried more turkeys than I care to admit to. The most important rule is no open flames when putting in or removing the turkey. Bring your oil to temp, shut off the propane, lower the turkey in, relight the fire. Do the same when removing. No open flame to ignite the oil, no oil fires!!
