Deep Frying Turkey

November 22, 2011 by staff 

Deep Frying Turkey, Deep-frying your turkey to crispy, juicy perfection may sound like a delicious proposition this Thanksgiving – provided you don’t explode the turkey and set the house on fire in the process.

Not buying it? Just ask Fair Lawn firefighters how a deep-fried turkey caused a serious house fire this past New Year’s Eve.

To avoid future conflagrations, Fair Lawn Fire Marshal Jay Bender offers the following tips on deep-frying your bird.

Don’t overfill the pot with oil – avoid spillover when placing the turkey in the pot. Thaw the turkey before frying. Turn off the flame when placing the turkey into the oil. Fry outside and a safe distance away from the house.
Do not leave the cooking pot unattended. Keep a grease-fire approved fire extinguisher nearby.
