Deep-frying your turkey may make for a juicier bird, but it can also lead to a fiery fiasco, not to mention that it is a very unhealthy way to cook anything! If you do decide to deep fry, though, make sure you take these precautions.
- Thaw your turkey completely.
- Make sure to cook outside, away from structures and combustibles.
- Try to avoid cooking during precipitation, since water may cause the oil to spatter.
- Above all, never leave the fryer unattended, and monitor the temperature closely.
