To Fry Or Not To Fry, That Is The Question ? Turkey, That Is.

Recommended Posts

OK, they are selling turkey fryers all over the place it seems.  Is it a good idea to fry a turkey?  Anyone have experience good or bad in turkey frying?  Is it really much faster than oven baking/roasting?  Do you still stuff a turkey that is going to be fried?  Just looking for tips as I am thinking of getting a turkey fryer and trying it out.  They seem to be selling them everywhere this year.  Lowes, Aldi's prolly other places too.  Thanks for any advice. :)

Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Just a word of advice - no matter how bad the weather is - don't fry a turkey just inside the doors of your walk out basement. Someone here did that and burned down a $2 million house.

We like to get a smoked turkey from a local place.

Fried turkey is really good, you just add the turkey, no stuffing.  Make it safety first, and do your research beforehand.

they  do  make  an electric  turkey  fryer   which we  have  &  love  it.....so we  usually  do 1  roasted turkey  traditional style. Then  do  1  either  fried  or  smoked  in a  smoker... a  smoked  turkey  tastes   more like  ham!!! 

We  make the  stuffing  in a  separate pan... also  when you fry  a  turkey  you  don't get  the  goodies  for gravy....

Our local Kroger's sells smoked turkeys Karen, so that is an option.  Don't have to worry about burning down a $ 2million buck house here tho.  But doing the frying outside on the cement seems like a good idea.  Sure will get the cat posse interested in a hurry.  Thanks!

Safety sounds like a good idear to me Laura.  Stuffing separate, check!  Thanks for the affirmation!

 

Biggest downsides--the oil is expensive...then what do you do with it when the turkey is done?  

Hmm, make turkey flavored donuts? Heck, I don't know what to do with it.  Good question though SMRI, thanks!

Wow, smoked turkey seems like it would take a long time.  Maybe not though.  Dang, something else to try!  :)  Thanks for the idea as it does sound interesting.  So you are a 2 turkey household!  Sounds real good on the electric fryer.  :)

We have deep fried a turkey before! It was really yummy! Very tender and juicy. Of course pre- Celiac but #1 tip don't use any other oil but what they recommend ! #2 look at the ingredients in the oil , After DX'd We went searching out oil and all they had was Peanut/soy oil Pfft! I am soy intolerant and was afraid to eat anything cooked in it. Anyhow I recommend deep frying a turkey.

Good to hear Waitn4Dave!  I'd rather avoid the soy oil too.  I'll have to find something without it.  Fried chicken doesn't sound too bad as something to use the fryer for later.  Yummy sounds good to me!

Another good way to make a turkey is to brine it. I'm sure there are recipes for that on the internet. I had it done that way at a friend's house one year and it was good.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!
