Well for any of you that would like to fry a turkey here are some delicious brine recipes:

I usually don't inject or rub, but a nice brine always makes the turkey the most juicy and delicious.

Apple cider Brine recipe (perfect for fall):
  • 12 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sage
  • 2 tablespoons thyme
  • 2 tablespoons rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 4 cups ice


Beer Brine Recipe:



4 quarts Beer (Your Choice)
4 quarts Ice or Water
2 cups Kosher Salt
1 cup Sugar
4 Bay Leaves
3 Thyme bunches, fresh
3 Yellow Onions, peeled and chopped
3 Celery stocks, sliced
3 Carrots, peeled and sliced
2 Lemons, quartered
4 Garlic Cloves, peeled and sliced


Maple Brine Recipe:

  • 2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup maple syrup

This post can be anything about deep-frying turkey!

For thanksgiving I usually like the typical sides, sweet potatoes, cranberries, buttered rolls, etc.

I feel as though everyone should try deep fried turkey at least once. It is so tender and juicy that it literally makes my mouth water while preparing it.

Also, contrary to popular belief, deep-fried turkey barely has any more calories than a roasted turkey, but twice as delicious!

Of course it didn't. Domestic turkeys are bred to have extraordinarily large breasts (what is it with American men's fascination with large breasts anyway?) because white meat is favoured over dark meat. That's why domestic turkeys can't fly.

Thank you for that link. That has to be one of the best ever scenes on TV.

Well, I know enough to set my Coffee Cup safely away from my mouth Before starting this vid. I had to turn the volume all the way up. Between their laugh track and my laughing it was hard to hear.

Ahhh, thanks for the morning.

Deep-fried turkeys

Yes that is true, everyone has their different tastes.

I have never had a bad deep-fried turkey before, the taste for me is better than any of the other cooking methods (smoking, roasting)

But sure! If you plan on smoking and frying this year be sure to get in contact with me because I would love to help you out!

I have many tips and tricks to frying the perfect bird!

Good books for turkey cooking

If anyone has ever had any questions about turkey cooking I have found that there are some good books over on Amazon for very cheap,

Like, "How to deep fry a turkey" by Justin Lee any many others with helpful hints and tricks.
