Deep fried my first turkey this Thanksgiving, and it was a hit. Usually there is turkey left over, but all that was left was the bone. My family raved over it and said don't change a thing. My turkey was 17.6 pounds and was nervous the turkey wasn't seasoned enough, as the recipe is for a 14lb turkey. Strained some of the marindate to inject it into the turkey. The turkey was definitely cajun and everyone LOVED IT! The peanut oil grease was 350 before the turkey went in and dropped to 300 degrees after the turkey went in and stayed there. The Turkey came out crispy as expected but not black, but a dark golden brown. It cooked for exactly 57 minutes . Will definitely do this again.
