Anyone deep frying a turkey this Thanksgiving?

Recommended Posts

I'm not a big fan of turkey, but I had deep fried turkey at work a couple of years ago and it was delicious, so we are trying it at home this year. Anyone else doing this? What herbs are you going to use and do you inject the turkey with anything (read about injecting on a cancun food site)?

I'm not much of a meat eater (I still love Thanksgiving because of all the sides!) but FI and his Dad always deep fry their turkey for Thanksgiving. I wish I knew what they did. All I know is they have a big pot that sits on a burner and lots of hot oil :) Good luck finding the ingredients wink.gif

We fried a turkey every year so last year when we took over thanksgiving duties, it was our turn... we bought an injectible marinade and it comes with a rub and comes out more available in stores around thanksgiving.... it makes the turkey soooo good. If you need anymore info or help just let me know...

i love fried turkey and so want to do one...alton brown had a show on them...but i also love the drippings from roasted turkey for the gravey so i may do both...we usually have a big group so if i do 2 smaller turkeys (around 12-14 lbs each) we should be good.

 

def. do an injection of marinade...

My family does a fried turkey and an oven turkey every year. The fried turkey we brine overnight two days before and rub down with a combo of our favorite seasonings one night before (gives the water from the brine time to drain out too). It's my favorite. Fi loves it so much we bought our own fryer and have smaller turkeys throughout the year. It also saves a lot of extra work on the kitchen on Thanksgiving day.

Yum, I'm sitting here at work at 1:30 a.m. and this thread has me craving fried turkey *sigh* fryingpan.gif

 

FI's family has an oven-baked turkey as well as a fried turkey every year ~ we've had it injected with a variety of marinades.....teriyaki, garlic, and hickory/honey nut butter (my favorite)!!!

 

Now I can't wait till Thanksgiving!!! cheers.gif

I'm so excited to try it...I found some great recipes for marinades, now it's just a matter of choosing one! I found a turkey kit at crate and barrel that includes brining salt and herbs...has anyone tried it??

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
