We will be having the traditional food (Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans..etc) but no family. Just my brother and I, and maybe a friend or two. I don't like going to someone elses house to eat, and we don't have much family left. The ones that are still alive are Christians and they don't like smoking and drinking beer. So I say fine you won't be seeing much of me then. I like cooking thanksgiving dinner in my own house, and if a friend wants to come over that day its fine by me. I don't like being around people that don't like what I do. So I don't associate with them.

Wow, you're going to have a busy day!

How is a "Deep fried turkey" traditional? A traditional Turkey is "Oven Baked" everyone knows that. You're cooking a "new age" Turkey. That's punky I can dig it.

How do you keep the stuffing from coming out of the turkey when you Deep fry it? lol

I never stuff a turkey, to much of a risk for under cooking plus the internal juices just don't appeal to me soaking into stuffing, I make an oyster dressing almost like stuffing just a little more flavor. Deep fried turkeys have been on a Thanksgiving table in these parts for over 20 years, it isn't anything new to us .

Oh ok, I never had a fried turkey before. The reason I don't like that idea is because you lose the turkey juice in the oil. When you bake it in a pan you can spoon some juice on your turkey and potatoes. But I'd try a fried turkey of course, just never had it.

Tyler when you deep fry it seals all the juice in as soon as it is submerged in the oil, so the turkey is very juicy, it isn't hard to do but there are precautions you have to take or the whole thing can go up in flames. Deep fried turkeys became a past time for several holidays in my area, it was started at an old VFW , they experimented with lbs and oil temp, in the beginning they used a wire clothes hanger ( they made a harness from it ) attached it to a broom handle and lowered it into a pot of oil. There are several different seasonings you can use.

Incorrect. Canada celebrates Thanksgiving too. They do it in October.

Ok that makes sense. I like my turkey juicy is why I said that. I always spoon out some in the pan and put it on top of everything. I'll have to try deep frying one someday that sounds good. First I'll have to get a deep fryer big enough to cook a turkey. This year we're going to use the oven as usual.

You can get a new turkey fryer at Walmart for $39

Oyster dressing is the best in the world. After our first one, we insisted on that style forever after. There's nothing like it.

It looked like the basket, pot, burner, and a stand. The tank will be up to the buyer.

What do you need a tank for? Are you talking about a propane tank? I think I would prefer an electric one.

Also I have another question, what do you do with all the oil after you cook the turkey? And how many bottles of oil do you need to buy and what kind of oil is best to use?

This is why I never considered a turkey fryer. The idea of wasting a coupla gallons of expensive canola oil just seems foolish. I don't think anyone makes an electric fryer. Just guessing.

Well I think I'm not going to get a turkey deep fryer. I've been satisfied all my life with oven cooked turkeys. Totally satisfied. Its the way my family have always cooked them so I'm sticking with that. My grandmothers and grandfathers didn't have a deep fryer, they cooked them in the oven. Also, I like the smell of the turkey cooking in the oven that goes all thru the house.

If it ain't broke don't fix it attitude.

It takes 5 gallons of peanut oil to fry but you can do as many as 4-5 turkeys in the same oil, it takes about 30-35 minutes to fry a 10 lb turkey, that is why we do a get together and fry several for other families. I have the whole set up propane tank and all. There is an electric deep fryer on the market but not sure it would hold a 10=12 lb turkey.
