    I just bought a turkey frier. Always wanted one. Now that I have it, I was just wondering, What other foods and recipes do y'all have for me? This will be my first time using one and tasting what comes out of one. Thanks! ;f

    I did my first fried turkey last month, i got a tip after frying the bird, toss in some taters for some yummy tasting fries, and some batter dipped onion rings GOOD STUFF!!!

    Oh yea, take some grands biscuit dough, roll em up like donuts and toss em in there!!

    I plan on trying something i seen at the FLA state fair, deep fried sickers bars ;f ;a

    WOW That looks Great! Now I'm hungry!

    Oh one other question. What are the rules on re-using the oil? Any Do's and Dont's?

    peanut oil is not cheap so re-using it is a must. After mine cooled some i poured it through a filter i think you can use it 2-3 more times.

    Thanks. If I use the oil, for say a turkey, can I use the same oils for a chicken, or should I only use it for 2 to 3 more turkeys only(ie flavor mixing?

    Deep fried turkey is EXELLENT! But just be careful, don't burn down your house or deck, and keep people and pets away while heating, cooking, and cooling.

    I just cooked a turkey for my in-laws for an early Christmas dinner. You don't need peanut oil. I used Canola, and it worked just fine at half the price.

    You can also "clean" the oil by making potato chips. Slice them thin using a grater or mandoline and add them after the turkey/other fried stuff.
    Turkey fryers are also great for crab/crawfish boils--just add seafood/veggies, water, and Old Bay to taste.

    Since I don't have one I didn't follow the link through and note the specifics. On one of the local tv station's websites there was a text blip about a recall regarding these things.

    I'll try to retrace my steps and find it again - editing to add the specifics.

    I have deep fried chickens the same way with very good results.... just fry them for 9 minutes/pound.

    keep using the oil as long as it isn't "burned" or dirty. Filter it before and after each use and you should be ok.

    You sure about the 9 minutes per pound? I go about 3-4 minutes per pound on a turkey at 375 degrees.

    fill the fryer with water and add the turkey you are about to cook so you can judge how much oil you need to use. Last thing you want to do it heat up too much oil and have it overflow when you add the turkey. Just make sure you COMPLETELY dry the pot and turkey before cooking. We all know what happens when you add water to hot grease.

    Chickens are great!!

    More crispy skin per meat ratio on the bird;f

    But I don't think we fried them quite that long? Typo? Or did we mess up?;g

    Here is a link to an cooker we use that doesn't need oil.http://www.ultimateroaster.com/ Can be used outside like a frier, in the oven, or on top of the stove. Makes for some good eats.

    The 9 minutes/lbs is for chicken. Turkey i alwaysgo 3.5 minutes but I always leave it in until i can twist a drumstick bone before I remove it
