    Damn, that sounds good. Never had a deep fried turkey before. Are they really as good as everyone says?

    Also, I wouldn’t be a good neighbor/friend/metblogger if I didn’t let everyone know how important it is to use your turkey fryer correctly. Since I work for UL, I’m privy to plently of information about these turkey fryers. If you want to know what I’m referring to, check out UL’s page on tf’s, and watch the movie:

    The last thing I want to do is freak anyone out over the holiday, but I feel fair warning is necessary.

    Thanks for the links! To answer your question, yes, it is awesome and worth the hassle and danger.

    For those that may be trying the fried turkey for the first time, here’s some advice. Most first-timers make the mistake of improperly measuring the amount of oil in the pot. Too much, it spills over- and at 400 degrees or so this is quite dangerous. Too little, and part of the turkey will go uncooked, which is just nasty.

    The solution:
    Make like Archimedes, and wrap your turkey in a platic bag, then put it in the empty pot. Then fill the pot with water. Then remove the turkey. Mark the waterline and then fill to the line with oil. Now, you won’t have too much or too little- you’ll have just enough oil to cover and thus fry the bird.
