Stupid Tip of the Day: Deep Fry that Turkey. Holiday Turkey

Holiday dinner menus are being planned as we speak. This week surrounds the cooking of the bird and some enjoy the technique of deep frying it. This is a fine way if you know what you are doing and have the right tools for the job.

We have all heard the insurance commercials telling us how many house fires happen during the season due to the big deep fry. The number one reason the explosion happens is, being unaware that the turkey still has moisture inside it, when it goes in the blazing hot oil. This causes a dispersing reaction (remember, oil and water don’t mix) and the oil explodes out, causing people immediate injury, as well as catch fire to materials in close proximity, due to the excessive temperatures. Make sure if you are a deep fryer, the turkey has had plenty of time drying out. And, if you are going to stuff it prior, follow all instructions to do so. (once again, oil and water don’t mix)

One proper tool to have if deep frying meats is a pull harness to be able to release the meat into the vat from a great distance. This can save people many painful trips, to the hospital. And, can keep firemen at bay so they too, can enjoy the Holiday.

So please, enjoy the cooking of the traditional bird, but save the deep frying to those that are willing to invest in the customary tools and time to keep safe. Best of luck with turkey dinner.
