How to Deep Fry a Turkey

Turkey is a traditional holiday meal staple, but who wants to wait around all day for the bird to cook? Roasting is always a standby, but a lot of the problems that roasting presents--like soggy skin and dry meat--are solved with a fryer practically without trying. Next time it's your turn to prepare the main bird, why not try a new method of preparation? Learning how to deep fry a turkey is easy, and it takes only a fraction of the time that conventional roasting does--but the real bonus is in the finished product. Because a deep fried turkey cooks faster, it remains tender and juicy while the skin turns deliciously crispy in the hot oil. Though deep frying can increase the resulting fat content, the flavorful nature of a deep fried turkey coupled with its reduced cooking time make it the perfect choice for a special occasion indulgence. When you know how to fry a turkey, you know how to create a beautifully scrumptious holiday main course in a fraction of the time as traditional roasting.
