What do I need to know about using a turkey deep fryer?

The first thing that you need consider when it comes to using a turkey deep fryer is safety. Make sure to use the fryer outdoors, and always have an extinguisher at hand. Make sure that there is no trace of water in the fryer. Check how much oil is needed by using displacement. Place on sturdy and leveled surface.

Turkey fryers are great but make sure that you use it outdoors and have plenty of space around the fryer in case oil spills. Never use a frozen turkey.

Make sure to read all the safety information that comes with it. Also, make sure to do this outside away from anything that could burn.

Most important thing is to make sure the turkey that you are about to cook is THAWED! They really do explode if you cook it when frozen.

You need to know how dangerous those things are. NEVER use them inside, NEVER use them with a frozen bird. Always be careful about lowering the bird into the oil
