LOL! Yes, Sheila and I both got quite a kick out of his whole "Turkey Derrick" routine!

(For the record, I have helped cook a bunch of these, and we have never employed a ladder in the process...)

I saw that episode also, I love him even though he goes over board. I can just see people frying a turkey and starting the fire and suing him if he did not use those precautions.... It is all to appease the sue happy public.

Pastafarians really know how to cook

Yup, I always brine our turkeys whether I bake, BBQ or fry. I only brine ours for 24hrs or so and they turn out fine. Injecting them with a flavored solution either commercial or homemade also works well when deep frying.
