Carefully. Very carefully.
Here’s another Thanksgiving and Christmas recipe for you.
My friend, Dan Kenney, has a post at the Coach4aDay on deep frying turkeys, and another one here, updated. Dan will cook 15(!) turkeys on Thanksgiving this year. I have no idea how many people he’s hosting, or how many he’s frying up for friends. I wouldn’t put either past him — Dan is the host of the Annual Beer Snob Pig Picking, which involves a whole hog. At any rate, Dan has been frying turkeys since 1999, and he’s still alive and free of visible burns.
Whether you’re planning on frying a turkey or not, I highly recommend Dan’s post on deep frying turkeys. It includes a video on how to deep fry a turkey safely and, more fun, how not to deep fry a turkey.
And follow Dan’s blog. You’ll be a better person.
