Deep Frying – Fried Turkey


Last Thanksgiving, I won a Masterbuilt Turkey Fryer over at Larry’s Blog. We hadn’t been able to use it until now. Frying a turkey on the weekend is a big commitment. You have to actually remember to pull a turkey out of the freezer 4 days before the weekend! This turkey is great year round, and frying it in oil keeps the moisture in the meat, where it belongs.

375 Degrees
Deep fryer
40 minutes
6-8 Servings


  • 9-10 pound turkey
  • 2 gallons oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic salt

Thaw turkey completely. Dry inside and outside with a paper towel. Heat oil in fryer to 375 degrees, about 20 minutes. Rub turkey with spices and place in basket. Slowly lower turkey into hot oil and fry for 30-40 minutes, 3-4 minutes per pound. Remove from oil and hang on drain clip. Let stand 10 minutes and serve immediately.
