How To Deep Fry A Turkey

How To Deep Fry A Turkey

Frying a turkey is a fast, fun, and tasty way to make your Thanksgiving bird! It can also be potentially dangerous. In this video, we'll show you how to fry your turkey safely. There's two questions when it comes to oil when you're frying a turkey, and that's what kind and how much. As far as what kind, I recommend peanut oil. Peanut oil has a high smug point, so it's going to last longer. It's also not going to give your turkey any off flavors. As far as how much oil to use, the nice thing about this turkey fryer pot is it does have a max fill line. The most important thing is to know you need enough oil to cover your turkey, but not so much that it spills over and creates a fire. One way to be extra sure you've got the right amount of oil is to take your turkey before you cook it and place it in the fryer pot. Fill it with water until it covers the turkey, take the turkey out, and take note of where that water comes up to. That's how much oil that you need. With the particular turkey that I have today, I know I'm going to fill it to the max fill line. Once you've filled your pot with oil, you'll want to put it on your burner. Make sure you already have your burner set up according to the manufacturer's directions. I typically have the flame very low at this point when I put this on the burner, and then turn it up. You can adjust the air intake to get as blue of a flame as possible. On a windy day like today, it's not uncommon to have some yellow flame. Now, I'm going to go ahead and take my oil thermometer and place it on the side of the pot. Make sure the tip is covered in oil and also not touching the side of the pot. We're going to want that oil to get up between 325 and 350 degrees. One of the most important things when you're frying a turkey is to make sure you're frying a completely thawed bird. Make sure your turkey is completely unfrozen or your could have an oil boil-over. That's the last thing you want because that'll start a fire. The other thing you want to do is make sure that your turkey is completely dry. Again, oil and water don't mix, they tend to bubble up, and they can cause a boil-over. Next thing I'll do is cut off any excess fat that's on this turkey. You'll also want to make sure there's a hole in the top here where the neck was to make sure you can get your lifter through it. The next thing I'll do is cut a slit in front of each leg and that'll allow any excess oil to drip out when I pull the turkey out of the oil. The next thing you'll want to do is season your bird. I'm using salt and pepper and Regal Spice's Cajun spice and skillet seasoning. In addition, I'm going to use cajun Injector creole butter recipe as the marinade. When you're injecting your turkey, you just want to hit it in several places in the thick parts of the meat. Now, we're going to put it on the lifter and then wait for our oil to get up to temperature. Just like so, you can see how that will work. As you can see, I'm wearing heavy-duty fryer gloves. Safety equipment is very important. You'll see why when I start dropping the bird into this fryer oil. In addition, a fire extinguisher is always a good idea. I'm going to take the thermometer out while I load the turkey into the fryer. When I'm done, I'll replace the thermometer. Now, when you're putting the turkey into the fryer, the slower you go, the better. This will help prevent a boil-over. It should take a full minute for you to dunk this turkey into the fryer. I generally let the turkey fry for about three and a half to four minutes per pound. Next, I'm going to go ahead an put that thermometer back in there so I can keep an eye on the oil temperature. Okay, I've fried this turkey for about three and a half minutes a pound. I'm going to go ahead and take it out. First thing is I'm going to take out the thermometer so I don't knock it out and I'm going to gently lift this out of the fryer. Remember, you have that cavity that's going to hold a lot of oil and you'll want that to seep out before you bring it out over the flame. Oh, look at that crispy skin! Now we just want to check the temperature of the turkey. We want it to be at least 165 degrees. There we go!

Customer questions about this product

How do I safely and thoroughly clean my Taylor thermometer?
Your Taylor thermometer is constructed of a durable stainless steel probe, and in some cases, a plastic head. When cleaning your thermometer, do not immerse it in water or use it in the dishwasher unless the description specifically states that it is waterproof and dishwasher safe. Simply clean the stainless steel stem with hot, soapy water and wipe the head with a damp cloth.

    Worked great when I first bought them to check final temps before transport, but even with hand washing and never submerging the thermometer, the face is bubbled from the inside and the digit reading is only partially displayed. Would be good for home use, but not in a commercial setting.

    This is a great little simple digital thermometer. Theh only issue we have had is it seems to kill the batteries really fast. so we have to keep a stash around.

    At first we were really excited about these Taylor thermometers. They read quickly and accurately. Nonetheless, we have found that some of them simply refuse to calibrate after the first few weeks. We follow the instructions, but I can leave two deep dents in my fingertips from holding the buttons down, yet they will not re-calibrate. Too bad, since they also seem to drift a little faster than the older model Taylors that we can no longer seem to find anywhere!n The batteries also run down much, much faster than I'm used to from other professional digital thermometers. Probably an excellent choice for the home cook or the smaller kitchen. Not recommended for the professional kitchen.

    The Taylor Digital Probe Thermometer is easy to use and seems to get accurate readings. We use it from everything from checking soup temperatures to making sure that our meats are cooked through. Love that it's dishwasher safe too!

    from Bettie N Posted on

    We loved this item when we first got it but it didn't last as long as I had hoped. It might be that it got submerged in water.

    Use these thermometer probes for checking temps in our hot and cold food and dessert products at our custard shop. They are very accurate and very easy to clean.

    from McFen Custard LLC Posted on

    These thermometers are very good quality. They read very quickly and seem to be very accurate. There was no need to calibrate them out of the box. I will purchase more in the future.

    This is by far my favorite thermometer. Had it for three months so far and has been consistent in its calibration and readings. Digital is a big bonus.

    I have been too nervous to wash this in the dishwasher even though it says I can but it has held up being washed in the sink with no problems.

    These are not my favorite thermometers. One arrived not working (it was immediately replaced by webstaurant), but they are a little more difficult to use than the older version.

    from St Anne Orthodox Church Posted on

    This is an awesome thermometer! My previous kitchen thermometer would take forever to read, but this little guy is really quick and accurate. The thin probe was very helpful when checking on some porkchops, and it was much easier to place the probe than my previous thermometer.

    This digital probe thermometer is so handy! We use it to check the temp of our soups, to make sure they're safe to serve. It's a great buy!

    from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on

    This is great, the price is decent and they hold up very well. The features are helpful and the face is very easy to read. A little bulky for wearing with my coat but great for general use in the kitchen

    from Lake Springfield Christian Assembly Posted on

    This is my favorite model pocket therm to supply my line with. The display is easy to read and the prope reads very quickly. Water resistant and very sturdy. Great price.

    from Pulse UltraLounge Posted on

    Taylor has always been my preferred brand for digital thermometers. These function very well, clean easily, and give temps quickly. Fit perfectly in the pocket of a chef coat.

    Posted on

    Incredibly fast response time when checking temps and durable as all get out. I'd order more of them but I feel like these things will outlive me.

    from CrepeWorX LLC Posted on

    This probe thermometer is really handy to have around the kitchen. The probe allows you to get a few inches into the item that you are checking the temp of.

    from Plan 9 Alehouse Posted on

    Small handy tool to have in the house. The Digital Probe is compact but is also very reliable. I have used it a few times so far and it's accuracy is excellent. It cleans off well and does the trick!

    from Neuhaus Inc Posted on

    I like this digital probe thermometer. I find it easy to use and has features I find useful. I like the fact it goes from -40 degrees to 450 F. The case is an EPA registered product that inhibits the growth of bacterial odor and mold on both the case and sleeve. It also shuts off automatically.
