Deep Fried Turkey How to Deep Fry a Turkey
Wild Turkey • Wild turkeys are thinner than turkeys that are raised on farms. • Males are four feet long, including their tails. Females are three feet long.
Hot Oil in Pot • To deep fry a turkey, you need a large pot filled with hot oil. • Hot oil is very dangerous, so keep children and pets away from the oil. • Use a thermometer to check the temperature.
Checking the Turkey • Lower the turkey slowly into the boiling oil. • Wear heavy gloves to protect your hands. • It’s a good idea to wear an apron and a long-sleeve shirt, too.
Removing the Turkey • When the turkey is finished, slowly lift it out of the pot using the poultry lifter. • A poultry lifter is a metal rod formed into a loop. The cavity of the turkey is placed through the loop.
Ready to Eat • After you take the turkey out of the pot, put it on a platter to let it drain and cool before you slice it. • Delicious!
