SmoFried Turkey? Sounds great, anyone try?

I saw a boy talking about it and I could see how it migh taste good to smoke a bird for a while and then drop her into a fryer.

Here's what this boy said:
Quote:
I smoked the bird till the internal temperature was about 130
and then pulled it off. I drained the fluids from the inside,
recoated it with cajun spice, and injected it with my spicy
injection.

Then it went right into the fryer!
He goes on to say:
Quote:
TEMPERATURE OF COOKING OIL

Most recommend 350. If it is too much higher, you risk burning
the oil. If it lower than that, you risk the bird being greasy.

TIMING IN OIL

You have to estimate it. The normal fry is 3 - 3.5 min per lb.
But since your bird is already pretty hot, from the smoking, you
just have to 'wing it.' There are just too many variables to give
a "fry for 10.389 min for a 12 lb turkey" type answer.

Very rough guess would be to around 1 min per lb. Then check
the internal temperature of the bird just like you normally do
for smoking <165 internal.
Sounds good. I could offer around the Holidays Turkeys Smoked, Fried or SmoFried.

Ya'll boys ever try this?
Thanks and have a great day
peace
mike

Not trying to be a SA, but if you're gonna smoke it then finish it in the Big Easy, why wouldn't you just leave it in the smoker and crank the heat? Just curious??

Cus I think it will be full of either Turkeys Smoking or Holding for Pick-up.

I'll be Frying them in Big Easy and if someone wants a SmoFry I can grab one out of the 250 degree smoker and fry it for a few and there it goes. I could Smoke and Fry others and have them holding in cooker for pick up.

I'm taking orders on the couple day event so we'll see how I do.

Thanks guys
mike
