How To Deep Fry A Turkey

In this video I will be demonstration how to "Deep Fry a Turkey". Its extremely easy and safe if you take the needed precautions.
Step One: Get a turkey, a very large cooking pot, and some cooking oil. vegetable oilcan be used, but it's better to use peanut oil. Peanut oil is very expensive and several gallons are going to be needed.
Step Two: Prepare the turkey. It needs to be defrosted and washed. Make sure there are no pop up tender timer devices or anything left inside. And, most importantly it must be completely dry. I mean really, really dry. You know what happens when you put water in boiling oil, don't you. You will also need to truss the turkey, meaning you need to secure the legs, neck flap, wings and tail to the body of the turkey.
Step Three: To determine the perfect amount of oil you are going to be using, place the turkey in the pot and add water until the turkey is completely covered plus two inches. With the turkey and the water there should still be several inches of room between the oil and the top of the pot. If it's a close call, then you need either a bigger pot or a smaller turkey. Remove the turkey and measure the water. This is the amount of oil that will be needed.
Step Four: Dry and season the turkey. Various recipes will call for seasoning rubs or injection mixtures.
Step Five: Make sure that your frying pot is completely dry. Water left behind can cause some serious problems once the oil is added and starts heating up.
Step Six: Add the oil to the pot and bring it to a temperature of about 325 degrees. You should really get a good thermometer so you can get the temperatures right.
Step Seven: You need some very good cooking gloves and a way to put the turkey in the oil while you are a safe distance.
Step Eight: A deep fried turkey cooks at a rate of about 3 to 3 1/2 minutes per pound. A ten pound turkey should take 30-35 minutes. An instant read thermometer can help you test for doneness, but of course you will need to lift the turkey out to test it.
Step Nine: Remove the turkey from the oil when it's done. Do this slowly and after you have turned off the burner. Let the turkey drain a little bit and you're set to go.
Step Ten: Carve and enjoy. If you have never had a turkey cooked this way then you have not finished your life requirements. Do this and you may never put a turkey in the oven again. Despite what you might think this turkey is not oily or greasy. It's crisp, juicy and delicious.
