    Does anyone know where to purchase a Deep Fried Turkeys?

    Grocery Stores down south sell them for Thanksgiving, but I haven’t been able to find one in Columbus that sells them.

    Just wondering if anyone had any luck buying one up here.

    Thanks!

    Hmmm. I know someone who says he used to fry & sell them each year. Sort of a deep-fried turkey bootlegger, I suppose. Anyhow, I’ll ask if he knows a legit venue for procuring them.

    Not a cooker, but a cooked one!

    although the deep friers are way cheaper than I imagined.

    Might try doing it yourself.

    Nothing quite like lowing the bird in boiling oil while yelling “REPENT, HERETIC!!! REPENT!!!!”

    Wouldn’t recommend it. SUPER SUPER dangerous.

    My brother tried to deep fry one last year. Completely mistimed it, ended up with the saddest crispiest burnt offering ever.

    Apparently the grease fires from deep fryers for turkey have caused a big increase in thanksgiving-related fires. So as Somer said, tread carefully. The key is to make sure that you don’t overfill the fryer so that the oil spills over the top of the fryer when the turkey is in the process of being submerged.

    And don’t do this in a garage. In the middle of a lawn is best.

    And don’t ever re-use old cooking oil…lowers the smoking point and catches fire much easier. My dad learned that one the hard way…ooops.

    additional pro tip: the amount of oil you will use can be established by a water displacement test.
