A cold sandwich--ah, yes--but a whole different meal. And of course, still moist and flavorful when done right the day before. But the warm juicy goodness of the Thanksgiving table was my thought process. I haven't fried a brined turkey but since the ones I have tasted have been the pre-brined type, I thought it a bit dry.
And I would have to brag on my unbrined turkey--or at least my tablemates do each year-- for moistness. 24# helps too. Too big for a fryer.
I know I am 'way in the minority about brining--but there are a few of us out here that prefer it. ;o)

To each their own. There is no right or wrong way as far as I am concerned. I love them brined and I also love then un-brined. As long as they are cooked right, they are delicious.

This may be a good time to drag out my annual reminder on deep frying turkeys...

1) Don't do it in a garage, or under any low hanging structures... (The burners need adequate ventilation, and if something DOES go worng, prevents the flames from hitting another structure)

2) The single most important item to have on hand while frying is... A Fire Extinguisher!

To all who are deep frying this holiday season, have fun, be safe, and enjoy!

John

GOOD TIPS


A fire extinguisher that can be used on oil!!

And make sure you don't try it in your kitchen. Don't laugh, people have tried this.

Just make sure it is rated for oil. Not all are. An ABC rating works on oil.
