5 Dangers of Deep Frying a Turkey
We have all thought once or twice about trying it every Thanksgiving, yep you guessed it, deep frying a turkey! Most have seen the thousands of videos of Uncle Joe trying to deep fry his first turkey and completely failing. You may have asked yourself this question before: is it worth it?? Well here are few things to consider when planning your Thanksgiving cooking methods:
*Turkey fryers can easily tip over
*Without thermostat controls, deep fryers can overheat oil to the point of starting a fire.
*Even a small amount of cooking oil spilling on a hot burner can cause a large fire.
*An overfilled cooking pot will cause oil to spill when the turkey is put in, and a partially frozen turkey will cause the oil to splatter when put in the pot.
If you do decide to venture into the land of deep frying, just remember these things when planning your holiday menu. Happy deep frying!!!
