Frying A Turkey? Watch This First!

There is not a more Southern way to cook your Thanksgiving turkey than by taking it for a dip in the fryer.

Deep-frying a turkey will leave your bird with delicious crispy skin on the outside, while keeping it moist and juicy on the inside. Not to mention, it frees up your oven for other things like baked mac and cheese, green bean casserole, or any other side your family enjoys.

While fried turkey continues to grow in popularity throughout the South, it is not without its dangers. The good folks at the Mt. Pleasant Fire Department in South Carolina put together this explosive video to show you how your Thanksgiving turkey can go from fried to fiery in a matter of seconds. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first timer, this demonstration¬†is a must watch.
