I've never tried fried poultry, but I have heard it is delicious. My problem is I like the stuffing that comes out of the bird from the oven (assuming it was stuffed) just as much, so I can't justify frying a turkey and losing out on stuffing.

Maybe a chicken I'd try, cause I'm not one to stuff a chicken. Hmmmmmmmm, something to look into . . . . . . . .

GB... your posts MIRROR to what i did last year...word for word. trust me, get yourself a "mild" marinade and inject it. something like butter creole would be perfect...it adds a buttery flavor but doesnot overwhelm it in anyway.

dru rubs are useless...the burn off the second they hit the oil no matter how long u leave em on b4 hand.

u gotta inject the turkey or it will come out dry and flavorless.

dunno if you have a bass / pro shop near you...but there marinades are awesome!!

There's no reason why you can't make stuffing and cook it in a pan in the oven. That's what I do. I cook my turkey empty so it will cook faster and not dry out.

If you want it moist, cover the pan. If you want it crispy, leave the cover off.

We're deep frying the turkey this year too. My brother in law is doing it. Hmm...I think I'm glad that frying that huge turkey in that giant pot of oil is a mans job in our house, all the hot oil scares me haha. Anyway, I hope it turns out good!

Invading armies are taking the long weekend, look for neighbors you don't like.
