Holy Crap!

  1. Well yesterday myself and my family gathered over my dads house for easter dinner and festivities. I knew he was going to make a turkey along with other things but this year it was different. Instead of cooking the bird in the oven he fried it! I have never had fried turkey before and all i can say is i will never eat turkey prepared in any other way. It was incredible!!

    My dad got a turkey frier for Christmas and hadn't used it till today. When i got to his house i saw the pot on a burner with a propane tank attached in the back yard, i asked him what that was and he told me the turkey. I was skeptical at first of the idea of a fried turkey but boy, it was delicious!

    I recomend all of you try this at one point or others who have already had this can chime in with words of encouragement to those who may still be skeptical. The only real downside to this is you have to fry it in peanut oil which is pretty expensive but can be used a few times if filtered out.

    I am converted to fried turkey.

    I should try this 'Fried Turkey'... I'm a big fan of fried foods (thank goodness my metabolism is high). Hey, have you guys ever tried a deep fried Twinkie? They have them at carnivals, and they taste awesome! :)

    You've obviously never lived in New Orleans. We always fry our turkeys down there.

    I find it's best to fry your turkey with a fifth of Jack Daniels. Mmm, mmm!

    When these turkey fryers started getting popular, there were a bunch of people who burned down there homes frying indoors. A little oil spilled out the top & bam. the whole thing goes up.
  9. Thats the exact reason for my dad cooking it in the yard...they just finished a remodel on his house and the fire would have just made things messy....but atleast the turkey would get cooked in the flames after a brief fry session ;)

    Fried turkey is the ONLY way to go!!!

    It doesn't lose its juicyness or its flavor. Absolutely AWESOME :D :hyper:
  11. Hmm I should *violently force* my mother to do this with poultry. Lets just say I have bitten into better sandpaper.

    Turkey that's been injected with hot sauce and then fried is really awesome, too. I highly recommend everyone try it.

    How about deep fried candy bars?

    I'm serious.

    No really, I'm serious. They are surprisingly good.

    But as far as the miracle that is deep fried turkey...have you ever gone the next step past turkey and had a turducken?

    Wow...Just wow.

    Ha! I was just telling my roommate about turducken - his first thought was that it was a mixture of duck... and turds! :eek:
