Wonderful way to cook turkey. Don't go too cheap on the marinade injector.

Didn't try the recipe yet, just thought I'd add a note. To measure for the oil, place the turkey in the cooking basket and lower into the pot. Add enough water until it is one inch above the turkey. Remove the turkey and basket from the pot. Measure the water level from the top of the pot. This is the amount of oil you will need to use to fry your turkey. If your water level is above the recommended oil level marked on the pot, the turkey is too big and shouldn't be fryed. 12 lb or smaller turkey is recommended. This is less messy than measuring the turkey in the oil. Remember to thoroughly dry your turkey inside and out and dry the pot too. Never leave your pot unattended. Happy eating!!

This was my first attempt at deep frying a turkey and I don't see how it can get any better. I just bought a 28qt. electric deep fryer and it recommended cooking at 400* though. Everything still came out perfect. I also added a little chipolte pepper and put on a cajun seasoning (mccoormick) rub on the skin and under the skin. I was asked to show up at my brothers house next week for a party he's throwing and do another one. Pretty cool for my first time. Thank you so much.

My first Fried turkey. The flavor was great but I didn't expect the wings and most of the legs to be inedible. I'm a dark meat guy and so I had a thigh and it was amazing.
