Every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas my family requests a Deep Fried Turkey. I highly recommend using the Deep Fried Turkey Rub found on this site. I never have any turkey leftover. The rub is perfect for this recipe. Try it and let me know your thoughts. Enjoy!

This video is missing an important and if left out potentially dangerous step. Once Turkey is rinsed it is absolutely essential that you completely dry it before immersing the bird into the hot oil. If the bird is wet when immersed then the oil will spit violently, this could cause you to drop the bird into the oil producing overflow and potentially causing a fire. ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR BIRD IS DRY BEFORE HOT OIL IMMERSION.
