I think mords had one of those and he said it didn't work to well. He tryed it indoors and it smoked the $hit out of the place and when he used it outside it wouldn't get the oil up to temp. BTW, where is mords? Anybody see or hear from him?

I have fried several turkeys and one recipe that we like is simple. Equal parts of garlic powder, black pepper, kosher salt. Stole this from Paula D from the food network. Makes a really tasty skin.

If you just got eat them nasty critters..they much mo betta smoked than fried. Actually they betta slow grilled over mesquite coals. Dont even get me started on that subject or speaking of Rotesseses. They expecting you at Academy.

That is good advise, I won't buy peanut oil either(get's just as dirty as Creamy HD Fry oil does and needs to discarded for half the money).

Larry you posted that you need to measure with water the level of oil by placing in the bird in the pot with plastic still on the bird, I find that method means I would have add oil to get it above the top of the bird while cooking. Remove the plastic, place bird in the pot and fill with water until it is just above the bird. Remove the bird from the pot, the water level with the bird removed gives you the correct level for the oil.

Me thinks there is some other motivation here other than BW responces to this thread, but what the hell do I know.

not to be ignorant..but what does the plastic on the bird have to do with needing more oil?...I do it the way you do Jim....I can't see how the plastic makes a difference...and this thread was locked this am...if memory serves

Jim,
I'm assuming you're saying you'd have to add more oil due to the space in the cavity of the bird?? Hasn't been the case with the handful of turkeys I've done. Never had to add any additional oil to the pot in the ones I've done.

The cavity shouldn't be an issue...cuz it's empty...it's the weight of the bird.....just thinking out loud here...

If the Plastic is still sealed then it displaces the water and you can not fill the cavity, with very small birds it may not make a difference but as you get to bigger birds it would have to greatly effect the fill level.

Cause the cavity is empty is exactly why the measured level for the oil will change if it was measured with the plastic on, once the plastic is off the oil will then fill the void that was not present with the plastic on.

For one of those rare times, I agree with Minion. I've tried the wrapped
turkey thing, and it doesn't work out.

Now back our main argument....Jim, I'm telling you, there's no way
you can light just a few coals and hope they will ignite others for a long period of time. I'm tired of arguing the point. Just admit you're wrong.

You are right cflatt... The Finney "Fire Up" which Minion stole years ago and renamed. Griff has been working on the suit for years. He hardly has time to post recipes because of it.
