This is what happens when you embed a youtube video that can't be embedded.

Also you're supposed to cook the turkey in the oven at low heat over time. not deep fry it.

You can deep fry anything ;)

If you can get it out without catching yourself on fire :o It might also be a little overdone.

Deep fried turkeys are awesome, but they have to be thawed for a long time before frying it.

It might be delicious, but to me as an Europeon it sounds absolutely disgusting. Way too fatty

Just cook it in the oven at low temperature over long time. Then you keep the natural meaty juices in, don't fillet with fat and crap, and it's extra juice and has all the flavours it's supposed to. And it's actually healthy unlike deep fried one.

It's the same reason you don't pour a glass of water into a deep fryer..

Many people do turkey that way. Is supposed to be quite awesome. If done right, it's supposed to be nice and juicy and very tasty.
But like any way you do a turkey, it is supposed to be thawed completely before cooking.

of course it's juicy, you're bathing in in oil. and most of the tastyness, comes from all the oil and salt and crap.

Sorry HawkMan, but deep fried turkey > any other kind of cooked turkey. Describing how awesome it is would take too long lol.

The oil doesn't penetrate very deep into the meat. The reason for deep frying anything is to preserve natural juices (and nutrients) that are removed with traditional cooking methods. Remove the skin after cooking and it's no more fatty than any other turkey, but it's much more moist and flavorful.

of course it's juicy, you're bathing in in oil. and most of the tastyness, comes from all the oil and salt and crap.


No, the skin absorbs the oil, and forms a barrier to keep natural moisture from the meat IN and most of the oil OUT. the only way to infuse flavor from spices, extra juices, etc, is to stuff the turkey with it. Have you tasted one? You'll swear by it if you do.

Just cook it in the oven at low temperature over long time. Then you keep the natural meaty juices in, don't fillet with fat and crap, and it's extra juice and has all the flavours it's supposed to. And it's actually healthy unlike deep fried one.


Actually that method reduces moisture and flavor. The only way to maintain moisture and flavor in meat is to provide adequate derict heat to the surface to create a barrier that prevents the escape of liquids. Pan searing, frying, etc are all ways. You don't even know what turkey really tastes like until you've had it this way.

The same people that create some of the most unhealthy menu options in any Restaurant in America. Bangers and Mash? Fish & Chips? Pudding? The organic and health foods markets were popularized in America, not Europe.
