Turkey Deep Fried
  • 1 turkey
  • 5 gallon Peanut Oil
  • 1 meat Injector Seasoning
  • 1 bottle Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 fire extinguisher
  1. Clean the turkey inside and outside, remove giblets and drain cavity. To measure how much oil you need you put the raw turkey in the pot and add enough water to cover the turkey. Put a mark where the water was at. Take the turkey out dry the pot and fill with peanut oil to the level where you left the mark.
  2. Season the turkey with meat injector seasonings and rub slightly with Cajun seasonings. Turn on the turkey fryer and heat the oil to 350F. Depending on the amount of oil used, this usually takes about 45 min., (Its not necessary to use peanut oil to fry the turkey; it's just what's commonly used because of its flavor as well as its very high smoking point; you don't want your oil catching fire. Any cooking oil that's good for deep-frying and has a high smoking point (450F, preferably) will do corn oil, safflower oil, even canola oil.)
  3. Once the oil has come to temperature, place the basket with the turkey in the pot very slowly. Whole turkey requires approximately 3 minutes per pound to cook. ea. 18lb turkey should take about 54 minutes. Allow the turkey to rest for 20 min.
