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??

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
