There is nothing better than a Deep Fried Turkey for the holidays! I’m sharing some basics tips that will give you the most juiciest holiday turkey ever.
If you’ve never had a deep fried turkey, then you are missing out? It is so moist and juicy…and the crispy outside is to-die-for. For years, we always fried an entire turkey, but we’ve also just fried a couple turkey breasts for smaller holidays and it works just as well too. We’ve played around with different spices and injections and techniques, but I’ve found keeping it super simple makes the best turkey.
To fry a turkey, you will need a turkey fryer. Please use extreme caution and follow all manufacturer recommendations…there are tons of accidents every year due to carelessness. We have an electric fryer that also doubles as a steamer (I’m sure I’ll post how we do crab legs one day).
Tools for an awesome fried turkey:
Fried Turkey Safety Tips:
- make sure turkey is fully thawed
- use your fryer outside in an open area and away from your house (we usually fry our turkey on our driveway)
- lower turkey very slowly into hot oil (keeping it slow will help it not to boil over)
