Dr Food went back to his ROOTS

and felt compelled to make a deep fried turkey. Our neighbors Jeff and Cathy just happened to have a turkey in their freezer. We planned on this dinner and thawed it a few days before. Then the fun began with tools. Turkey injectors and rubs and vats of oil.

Sorta gross if you ask me. I stuck to making some potatoes.

Poor dog didn't know what to make out of any of this

Oil is up to temperature and the turkey is being lowered. It must be a guy thing because all the guys had to sit out there and watch it.

There it is frying

Benefit of all of this is the turkey soup that I get to make. Here is the broth that is simmering away this morning

  6. Not too dangerous. As Janis pointed out us men stood around outside and watched. OUTSIDE being the most important safety tip. That and keeping the 150lb puppy inside while the frying takes place.

  8. I love deep fried turkey. Yours looks just perfect! MY DH bought me an electric fryer a year ago. Even though it suited his roots too, I just love it. Last turkey I fried was Cajun spiced.
