I've heard that deep-fried turkeys are amazing. Unfortunately, I've had only one, and it was badly overcooked by my b.i.l. He's not a renowned cook by any means.
I know what a properly smoked and barbecued tukey tastes like but not a deep-ried one. So I'm expecting a report. Oh, and by the way, I'm just a bit envious. I love trying new things. One day, when my daughter quits breaking my or her car, and we quit making trips to the West-Coast, maybe, just maybe I can justify the purchace of a turkey fryer.
But then again, I'm in serious need of new archery equipment. I just handed down the "Legend" (that's what my son calls my old bow) to my eldest son. It's getting a wee bit hard to pull for this old man who doesn't shoot often enough to keep the muscles strong (but then, that same 25 year old son has to do some exercising before he can pull it easily. Heh, heh, heh).
In any case, GB, you know how to cook. You know how to cook well. I'm expecting that you will almost instinctively know how to make that bird into a work of cullinary art. Good luck to you, and have a great Thanksgiving.
