I can never fry a turkey, because the recipe I use is actually all about the gravy, and the gravy can't be done right without the turkey being done alongside it. And if I did either Thanksgiving or Christmas without that gravy, I'd have a mutiny on my hands.

We do the dressing the gravy and everything else in the oven. Frees up lots of oven space and everything can come out at the same time without using the neighbors oven.


Here are some formal directions.

In the L.A. area, they have a couple of stores where you can go and buy a fresh turkey. How fresh? You come in and they kill the bird, pluck it, and bring it out to you still warm.

Someone I know got one of these last year and said it was the best turkey they ever ate. I'm wondering how well a bird like this would be if deep fried.

I think fresh turkey would be AMAZING!

Deep fried turkey can go wrong so quickly. One year we did it and it was left cooking for just a smidgen too long and the whole thing was disappointing, but when you get it right, man they are good.

Merc, what do yo udo with all that oil when you are done cooking it? Looks like a couple of gallons to get rid of. And how much does all that oil cost? Do you buy like 20 bottles of peanut oil at the grocery store, or is there some wholesale seller of oil?

It is easily supplied in 5 gallon plastic cartons. They say you can use it again but we don't. After it cools, the next day usually, we pour it back into the container and trash it, or the last few years I have been mixing it with food or bird seed and putting it out for the various critters to eat in the woods. Gives them a good supply of fat for the winter. Clean up is a bit messy.

What's wrong with baking? Think of your arteries people!

Oh the humanity!!!
Hehe :p Well, roasting's all well and good, but sometimes you just need it extra crispy. Plus, deep-frying is just too much fun to pass up

A guy at work was going to deep fry a turkey. I asked him how much it cost for the peanut oil. Over $30!!!

Add in the cost of the turkey and it makes more sense to order a deep fried turkey from Popeyes.
