Turkey Deep-Frying Do's and Don'ts
We want your turkey-frying experience to be successful, especially if it's your first time, so we’ve gathered these important reminders. Please take a moment to read them before getting ready for a great-tasting feast!
Follow the use-and-care directions for your deep-fryer when deep-frying turkey, and review all safety tips.
Place the fryer on a level dirt or grassy area away from the house or garage. Never fry a turkey indoors, including in a garage or any other structure attached to a building.
Use only oils with high smoke points, such as peanut, canola or safflower oil.
Wear old shoes that you can slip out of easily and long pants just in case you do spill some oil on you.
Immediately wash hands, utensils, equipment and surfaces that have come in contact with the raw turkey.
Have a fire extinguisher nearby for added safety.
Serve the turkey right after cooking, and store leftovers in the refrigerator within 2 hours of cooking.
Allow the oil to cool completely before disposing of it or storing it.
Never fry on wooden decks or other structures that could catch fire, and don’t fry on concrete, which could be stained by the oil.
Never leave the hot oil unattended, and do not allow children or pets near the cooking area.
