Fried Turkey

Cooked a Fried Turkey tonight. Tried to keep it simple. No marinades or injections. Just rubbed down with Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning and deep fried in peanut oil for 33 minutes (11 lb bird). Rested for thirty minutes and served. Tasted great, skin was crisp, and bird was incredibly moist. Will do again soon.




Seasoned and ready to go!




Interested Bystander





Frying away!



Finished product

That's a good looking bird. What do you do with the oil between cooks, how long will it keep?

John,

I read that you can expect to get three to four cooks out of a batch of oil before it starts to break down. I strained it and put it back in the five gallon container that it comes in.

I'm going to try and get a couple more cooks out of it. I strained the oil and put it back in the 5 gallon container it came in.

If when you are done cooking and especially before you store the oil..... slice up 2-3 pounds of potatoes and cook em' in the oil. It helps clean the oil some and remove some of the flavor of whatever you just cooked out of the oil.

I usually slice the potatoes up really thin and make chips... when they are fresh out of oil & still hot and oily I crack a bunch fresh pepper on them....DELICIOUS! You can always do french fries too.... either way, try to run some potatoes through the oil each time after using it.

If your using peanut oil, it's biodegradeable and you should have no problem dumping it out back.

Well until the rest of my subdivision get's built up (which will be who knows when) I can walk off my lawn about 10 feet and dump stuff there, which I have been doin. The coyotes love the bones and other scraps I throw out. Just gotta make sure my dog isin't outside when they are of course, I never really liked that dog
