This is the closest forum I could find for posting about fried turkey, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Got an electric deep fryer for Christmas last year, and was thinking about firing it up with a small turkey, just to get an idea of what to expect, corrections to made, ect.... It fries up to a 14 pounder, has an electric elemant that heats the oil to 400, and is programable. Says not to use it outside, but ain't no way I'm doing it inside. I've heard too many horror stories over the past few years. I'm gonna inject it, and of course wait till it's fully thawed. I've heard about some explosions also. Lol. Guess my main questions have to do with the oil. Peanut is best, right? And how long will that used oil keep in the fridge after using? Till Thanksgiving? Hate to throw all that money spent on oil away. My fryer has a drain and hose to keep the used oil, so... Any other advice is more than welcome. Thanks.
