How to Deep Fry a Turkey (and Stay Safe While You’re At It!)

by Julie on November 24, 2015

Thanksgiving is upon us, and what could be more traditional than a home-cooked meal prepared in your very own driveway? For some, the idea of a deep fried turkey might seem a bit too risky to try. But for people who have tasted how delicious this method of cooking can be, there’s no going back. Just be sure not to end up starring in your own YouTube video.

And while you’re at it, pick up a pair of deep frying gloves to protect your paws, just in case.

How to Deep Fry a Turkey:

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 3 gallons peanut oil for frying
  • 1 (12 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
  • 1/4 cup Creole seasoning (mix of paprika, dried oregano, black pepper, dried basil, kosher salt, cayenne pepper, granulated onion, dried thyme and garlic powder)
  • 1 white onion

Steps to Make Deep-Fried Turkey:

  1. In a large turkey fryer, heat oil to 400°F (200°C). Leave room for the turkey, or the oil will spill over.
  2. Rinse turkey, and thoroughly pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Rub Creole seasoning over turkey. Make sure the hole at the neck is open at least 2 inches so the oil can flow freely through the bird.
  4. Place the whole onion and turkey in drain basket, neck first
  5. Slowly lower basket into hot oil to completely cover turkey.
  6. Maintain the temperature of the oil at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and cook turkey for 3 1/2 minutes per pound, about 45 minutes.
  7. Carefully remove basket from oil, and drain turkey.
  8. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh; the internal temperature must be 180°F (80°C).
  9. Finish draining turkey on the prepared platter.

Heat resistant gloves


3 Heat-Resistant Glove to Keep You Safe:


#1. Light Duty Deep Frying:

If you’re cooking a single turkey, the NE240TKL is the perfect option.

Made with heavy-duty neoprene and a terry lining, this glove will hold up to heat without any problem. These gloves also have a long cuff that will give you added arm protection from any flying hot grease.

When you’re deep frying any food, flare ups are possible. But you won’t need to worry because neoprene is flame resistant.

The palm features a diamond-grip finish to increase your grip when loading and unloading the deep fryer.

#2. Medium Duty Deep Frying:

High heat and flames are part of every good Thanksgiving, right? Maybe not, but accidents do sometimes happen. If you’re a bit nervous about dunking a cold turkey into a vat of hot oil, these gloves will protect you up to 390°F. Boiling oil and flames are no match for this blend of materials.

What sets these gloves apart from the NE240TKL is added 18-inch arm protection.

If you find that you’re making several deep fried turkeys or you’re bumping the heat up a bit for a faster cooking time, the NE246FFL will be your best bet.

#3. Heavy Duty Deep Frying:

Maybe you’re an accomplished turkey fryer. So much so that the entire neighborhood is asking you to deep fry their turkeys too.

Suddenly, you’re spending the entire day slaving over a hot deep fryer. In these cases, your best bet is the NE250TRC.

Along with all of the features that make the other two gloves great, this one includes an extended 20-inch cuff.

Done right, Tom Turkey comes out of the fryer better than any roasted bird ever could. Remember that deep frying is always dangerous, even if you’ve been the designated fryer for plenty of Thanksgivings past.

Know your fryer, follow the instructions to the letter, and never fry a wet bird. It’s just a bad idea.
