anyone fry turkeys horizontal in a fry basket?

one like this?

http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/sto ... arketID=45

my pot is a 30 quart one and measures 12 inches across. I know it will work vertically but I have the means to do it vertically now. I want to do them horizontally so I save oil and less chance of overflow. just seems like 11.5 inches across would be a tight fit for a turkey. I generally do 12 or so pounders.

I know cliff and others rig up aircraft ss wire to drop them down in. showed my wife that and she didn't like it one bit

As far as the overflow problem and flare ups, I've always just shut the flame off when I lowered the bird in and then re-lit it after I realized I didn't spill any oil. Never had a flare up that way!

When you do the relight turn the gas off from the tank...not the adjuster on the hose
