re: How do you do your fried turkeys?(Posted by cbtullis on 11/12/12 at 4:03 pm to BMoney)
12-14 lb turkey. Brine the night before. Peanut oil. Fry for 3 minutes a pound plus 5 minutes. I don't inject, I actually like the tast of turkey. I have both the infrared electric fryer and a regular turkey fryer. I prefer turkey fried in peanut oil to the electric fryer, but definitely a lot easier clean up with the electric fryer
The fried turkey is the biggest abomination in holiday related cooking, surpassing even the turducken. It is expensive (that much peanut oil aint cheap), inefficient, cooks unevenly, and more often that not disgusting.
